Personalized Fundraising Bricks Pave the Way to a Healthier Community
Dayton, OH (February 7, 2007) – Members of the community have an opportunity to purchase special paver bricks to benefit patient programs and services at Miami Valley Hospital (MVH). Each brick can be personally inscribed and will be placed in the Four Seasons Garden at Miami Valley South Health Center, currently under construction at Wilmington Pike and Clyo Road in Centerville.
The inscribed paver bricks are being offered through the Miami Valley Hospital Foundation, which raises funds and awareness for programs and services that are not able to be included in the hospital’s operating budget. Pavers are available in two sizes: 4” x 8” for $100 and 8” x 8” for $200. Bricks purchased before May 2007 will be installed in the Garden for the Health Center’s opening in October 2007.
"The pavers offer a truly unique way to honor a friend, family member, or colleague," said Beth Hutter, director, Major Gifts and Planned Giving at the MVH Foundation. "We also have naming opportunities available for trees and benches throughout the grounds in the Four Seasons Garden with the proceeds going to enhance programs for patients and staff at MVH."
When Miami Valley South Health Center opens in the fall, it will serve residents in the south Dayton region. The new facility will include a full service, 24-hour emergency department as well as medical imaging services (including high-speed CT, MRI, and ultrasound), a breast center with digital mammography; cardiac diagnostics services; and a medical laboratory.
