Anderson Hospital Foundation News
Anderson has been making a difference in the healthcare of Madison County residents since 1977. We are an independent, not for profit hospital dedicated to creating a health care setting in which quality of life and service excellence are experienced by our patients, their families, our staff and the community.
In an effort to recognize Anderson Hospital as a charitable organization within our community, the Anderson Hospital Foundation was established in 2011. The Anderson Hospital Foundation enables longevity of a donor gift and offers donor opportunities such as endowments, planned giving, charitable gift annuities, grants, memorials, bequests, naming rights, annual campaigns, and future capital campaigns.
A governing Board of Directors focuses solely on contributions, prospecting and obtaining new donors, while making certain sound planning investments are made for the foundation, all creating an increase of income revenue for the hospital. Anderson Hospital Board of Trustees Member, Lendell Phelps, Co- Chairman of the Anderson Hospital Foundation Board, recently announced the addition of Dr. Max Eakin and Dr. Tom Hill to the Foundation Board. “It is with great pleasure that we add two of Anderson’s great physicians to the Board,” said Phelps. “Their history with our hospital and community will serve as a distinct asset to our mission.”
Dr. Eakin, who will serve as Co-Chairman of the Foundation Board, has been a member of the medical staff at Anderson Hospital since 1983. He served as the Medical Staff President from 2004-2006. "It has been a privilege and honor to have been associated with Anderson Hospital and its great staff for the past 30 years. We strive to keep our quality of healthcare at a high standard." Dr. Eakin is an active member of numerous professional and community organizations. Presently, he practices with Drs. Weber and Mulligans in Glen Carbon. He is a Past-President of the Trails West Council Boy Scouts of America and currently is a board member of the new Lewis and Clark Council. He serves at Eden Village Retirement Center as Medical Advisor, member of the Board of Directors, and Chairman of the Quality Review and Ethics. In September 2005, Dr. Eakin was awarded the Distinguished Eagle Award by the Trails West Council BSA. In 2010, he was the recipient of Anderson Hospital Founders Award recognizing him as an instrumental figure in the development and ongoing success of Anderson Hospital.
Dr. Hill began working with Anderson Hospital in 1988 as the Medical Director of Radiology. He served as Medical Director of Radiology from 1988 – 2007. Through his visionary leadership, he helped transform the Radiology Department at Anderson Hospital into a state-of-the art Imaging Center. Dr. Hill is also well-known for his philanthropic support of the Hospital. He has always offered up trips and other special travel packages as fundraising auction Items. He is the recipient of the 2007 Anderson Hospital Founders Award recognizing him as an instrumental figure in the development and ongoing success of Anderson Hospital. “It is exciting to be a part of Anderson Hospital during a major transformation from a general community hospital to a more specialized hospital with the addition of many more capabilities,” said Dr. Hill. “Anderson is positioned to become one of the pre-eminent hospitals in the metropolitan area.”
