LMHF launching Golden
Jubilee Capital Campaign

Lawrence Memorial Hospital opened its doors in 1960 to better serve the immediate healthcare needs of Lawrence County residents. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the hospital, the Lawrence Memorial Health Foundation is launching the Golden Jubilee Capital Campaign.

Funds from the campaign will be used to renovate patient rooms and other patient care areas of the hospital. The Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is seeking contributions from current area residents as well as those individuals and families who no longer live in the area.

Lila Floyd and Danny Gibson are serving as co-chairs of the fund-raising effort. They said the Foundation's goal is to carry on the dream of the hospital founders by working to ensure quality healthcare within the community for current and future generations.

A gift of $5,000 will provide funds to furnish and update one patient room. These renovations will include: new flooring, bedside tables, new televisions, sleep chairs, window treatments, over-the-bed tables, decorative amenities and freshly decorated walls.

One patient room in the hospital has been remodeled to show patrons what to expect.

Levels of giving have been established to include everyone. Contribution levels start at $1 and up, said Shirley Murphy of Lawrence Health Services.

Floyd said each individual member of the hospital's board of governors, as well as the foundation board, pledged to donate of toward the effort before asking others to get involved.

"We are honored to lead this important campaign and realize it will take many to accomplish this goal," stated Floyd. "However, we believe the same spirit of giving that was alive in our people some 50 years ago is still alive today."

Further details of the campaign will be announced in the coming weeks. A written presentation lays out the plan, in which anyone can have a part in helping accomplish the goals of the Golden Jubilee Capital Campaign. Those interested can set up an appointment by contacting the Foundation office at 870-886-1275.
