Centra Family Campaign

Each year Centra caregivers provide critical funding support to the Centra Foundation through the annual employee giving campaign.  Centra Family Campaign gifts allow our healthcare system to provide quality care locally to anyone in our communities, regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.  Gifts to this campaign grow the Helping Hands Program, which helps Centra caregivers in times of acute, unexpected need.

Centra Leaders Give Back, Give Big

Centra’s annual family campaign kicked off April 1 with record levels of leadership giving in the first 10 days. At the weekly leadership team’s virtual meeting on April 2, Andy Mueller, MD, Centra president and chief executive officer, announced his commitment to contribute his salary for the month of April to the campaign, dedicating his gift toward employee assistance.

Mark Townsend, MD, MHCM, Centra Foundation board chair and Centra Medical Group executive medical director, quickly followed suit. “Many of our caregivers are living through significant financial stress, and leadership giving is a fantastic way of returning support to our community’s health system,” explained Dr. Townsend. “Our support provides access to ventilators and X-ray equipment, and supports patients and fellow caregivers in need. My family counts it a privilege to be able to help.”

Adding to the unprecedented demonstration of leadership giving, Les Reed, MD, FACP, Centra Health senior vice president and Centra Medical Group president, joined in gifting a month of salary and said, “Please accept this donation with my heartfelt thanks to all of our employees who every day interact with patients and put themselves at risk to care for the most vulnerable people in our community.”
