Taylorville Memorial Hospital is nearing its end-of-year holiday appeal donation opportunity to expand the growing services and technology TMH uses to care for the community. These funds are used for special purposes that go beyond the typical patient services such as mammography services for uninsured or under-insured women, investment in children through nicotine vape education and how to curb the use of nicotine for children, and the community garden that provided the Taylorville Food Pantry with over one hundred pounds of fresh produce.
Kim Bourne, the President and CEO of Taylorville Memorial Hospital explains how these services allow access to help for all ages of the community.
Tackling the rise in nicotine use for children, Taylorville Memorial Hospital has teamed up with Taylorville schools to help kids understand the unknown health effects and the damage that is currently being seen.
The community garden was successful this year at TMH as nurses and staff tended to the garden when their time allowed, making for a plentiful harvest for the Taylorville Food Pantry.
Taylorville Memorial Hospital is asking the community for their support during the end-of-season appeal donation time to enhance and add to these helpful programs.
