Foundation Gala Goes Virtual

eventphoto

 

The Anderson Hospital Foundation’s 2021 Gala is going virtual!  The January Gala may best be described as an “interactive website” which will be open to participants January 29 thru the 31st.   Lori St. John, Foundation Event Manger, is working with GiveSmart, an industry leader in fundraising software, to bring a fun and interactive event to life, virtually.

While we will miss the fellowship and networking that occurs when physically gathered for a cause, there are some great advantages to a virtual event!  One of the best advantages is anyone can participate…from anywhere!   Guests can navigate to the website from the comfort of their own home using the device of their choice.  “The Givesmart Module allows guests to bid on their phones,” explained Lori.  “They will also get phone updates on their bid as the auction continues.” 

The website will feature “How to” videos from the Foundation Board’s Lendell Phelps,  instructing guests on how to navigate the website and participate in the auction.  “The items they will bid on will be Covid friendly and will be parties of 10 or 20, things to do close to home or items for the home,” said Lori. 

The 2021 Gala is titled, Hometown Heroes, and will feature a video showcasing a day in the life of some of our very own hospital heroes.   Lori is especially excited to offer past participants an extra special benefit.  “Guests from our 2020 event will receive a special save the date card in the mail and will receive a special gift the week of the event,” explained Lori.  The gift will include some special items including a recipe from the Chef at the Four Seasons.   “A video of the Chef making the recipe will be on the website and guests can make it during the event or whenever they want to enjoy it!”

 Lori is hoping guests will make a fun evening out of it.  “I hope guests will dress up and celebrate safely with friends,” said Lori.  Many virtual event guests host small parties and share their experiences with friends and family over Facebook.  “I hope we see photos of the finished meals and everyone dressed up!” 

Anderson Surgery Center Opens

DSC 0015

Representatives from Anderson Healthcare, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital and physician partners recently celebrated the completion of the Anderson Surgery Center with a ribbon cutting. The one story building located on Anderson Healthcare Goshen Campus, houses Anderson Surgery Center, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital Specialty Clinic, and a Physician Specialty Clinic. Conveniently located in the expanding I-55 Corridor planning area, the Anderson Surgery Center expands access to outpatient surgery in our community.
The Anderson Surgery Center offers surgeons the opportunity to perform specific procedures more efficiently and conveniently than they can in hospital-based operating rooms. “Our physician specialists will perform highly-specific procedures in plastic and hand surgery, gynecology, podiatry, ear/nose/throat, gastroenterology and plan to offer pediatric surgeries through our partnership with SSM Health,” said Shauna Cooper, Anderson Surgery Center Director. “We are focused on ensuring patients have the best surgical experience possible while providing cost-effective care.” In addition, the facility houses a Physician Specialists timeshare suite and limited outpatient services from Anderson Hospital including Lab, X-Ray and Audiology.
The Anderson Surgery Center is licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health and expects to receive accreditation by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) in the near future.
A unique pediatric partnership with SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, including SLUCare Physician Group, enhances pediatric services to include outpatient surgery in the facility as well. In addition to their specialty clinic opening October 5, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital plans to utilize the Anderson Surgery Center for pediatric surgeries in the future. “Anderson Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital have a longstanding relationship that has enhanced pediatric services in Madison and our surrounding counties,” said Keith Page, President and CEO of Anderson Healthcare. “This facility continues that partnership while also offering exceptional outpatient surgery options for adults and children.” The specialty clinic is on target to open on October 5.
In addition to the newly opened surgery and pediatric facility, a 34-bed acute rehabilitation institute is under construction and on target to open in summer 2021. The institute, to be managed by Kindred Healthcare, LLC, will care for adults recovering from conditions resulting in a loss of function or disability such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, neurological disorders, orthopedic or musculoskeletal conditions, amputation, and other disabling conditions. The institute will have all private rooms, with 12 beds specific to brain/stroke injury care. It will replace a 20-bed hospital-based acute rehabilitation unit at Anderson Hospital that Kindred has managed since 2004.
Anderson also announced plans for a third building on the Goshen Campus, a 50,000 square foot medical building.
