Hamilton County Telephone Foundation gave the ninth installment of $25,000 to Hamilton Memorial Hospital as part of their $250,000 pledge toward the Capitol Project Building Campaign for the hospital that began in 2007.

“On behalf of our providers, staff, board of directors, and the community we serve, we sincerely thank the Hamilton County Telephone Foundation for their continued commitment to our hospital. These contributions have been instrumental to providing quality health care close to home,” said Greg Sims, CEO Hamilton Memorial Hospital.

Over the past nine years, Hamilton County Telephone Foundation contributions have been used toward expansion payments, as well as for capital equipment projects that maintain cutting-edge technology at the hospital.

The 2015 installment brings the total contribution from the Telephone Foundation to $225,000 of the original $250,000 pledge.

“On behalf of the Hamilton County Telephone Foundation, its Directors and those that previously served who were instrumental in establishing the foundation, it is my privilege to present the 2015 donation in the amount of $25,000 to the Hamilton Memorial Hospital District. We are honored to support HMHD knowing that all of our community benefits greatly by having a local institution dedicated to provide urgent and continuing healthcare services,” stated Kevin Pyle, Hamilton County Telephone Coop General Manager.
