Thank You for Supporting Denim & Diamonds

On behalf of those involved with Denim & Diamonds, THANK YOU for making this our most successful fundraising campaign to date with more than $121,700 raised!  Please take a couple of moments to hear a thank you message from a few members of the Inpatient Rehabilitation team:

The winner of the Denim & Diamond’s grand prize was announced on a Facebook Live event on August 10, 2021

Dr. Bryce Heitman was the lucky winner of the yellow diamond necklace provided by Kari’s Diamonds and Bridal, valued at $13,995.

2021 Fund Designation

Proceeds from this year’s Denim & Diamonds are designated to the development of a simulated apartment suite within our Inpatient Medical Rehabilitation unit.  The suite will allow patients to practice their independent living skills in a controlled environment prior to discharging home.  With this addition, staff will be better able to determine challenges the patients may still have while simultaneously building confidence in the patient prior to discharge. 

Due to the advances in the care of stroke patients, those who previously may have been destined to reside in a nursing facility are getting another chance at going home and the added suite will provide many patients the opportunity to realize that chance.

Text 2021dd to 76278 and you will be prompted through the steps to make a donation.
