Treasure Island Fundraiser A Big Success

About 275 people participated in Orleans Community Health Foundation’s Treasure Island fundraising event on November 2, helping to raise $54,000 for Medina Memorial Hospital. The proceeds will be used to help complete a renovation of Medina Memorial Hospital’s Residential Health Care Facility. This renovation is improving the quality of life for our nursing home residents by providing as much of a homelike atmosphere as possible for those who come to live with us.

 The renovation includes new furnishings in the resident rooms, energy efficient windows, an updated heating, ventilation and air conditioning system to enhance the comfort of residents, and a new sprinkler system for improved safety. A new four season room has been added to give residents year around access to a warm, comfortable public setting for social interaction with other residents and visitors. A new nursing station is planned to provide for better visual monitoring of residents. A new dining room and kitchen area, along with the addition of a new buffet arrangement will provide a more homelike dining atmosphere.

A nursing home isn’t just a facility where care is provided – it really is a home for its residents. Medina Memorial Hospital’s Residential Health Care Facility is a home to elderly citizens in our community We want it to be a place where the comfort of home comes first, with quality nursing care supporting this homelike environment. The generous support given to us from our community at this year’s Treasure Island will help us to achieve that goal.
