Deb Stalets has announced that she will retire from her position as PCH Foundation Executive Director at Pana Community Hospital at the end of January. She has worked as the Foundation’s Executive Director for 4 years.
Deb began her career at Pana Community Hospital in February of 2008.
The first project that Deb was called upon to institute at PCH was a Capital Campaign to raise funds for the new Rehab/Wellness Center. Deb and the Foundation Board kicked off the campaign with a pledge to raise $500,000 to go towards the project. The campaign was a huge success, surpassing the original goal and raising over 535,000. The doors opened to the Rehab/Wellness Center in February of 2010. The Center has proven to be successful for the hospital and the community.
In 2010, the hospital made a decision to purchase a digital mammography machine. The Foundation was again called upon for support in raising funds. Within six months, the Foundation raised over $135,000 under the leadership of Deb, the Foundation Board and the generosity of the community.
Various fundraisers implemented have been dances, dinners, raffles, memorial angel tree and the annual golf outing held every August. The success of the golf outing continues to be the largest yearly fundraiser for the Foundation.
Before coming to PCH, Deb worked at Kemmerer Village in Assumption for 18 years.
