PCH Auxiliary Hosts Annual Meeting
April 11th, 2017
On Tuesday, April 11th the Pana Community Hospital Auxiliary held its annual meeting in the hospital’s community meeting room. President, Candy Craig presided over the meeting.
Special guest speaker for the Auxiliary Annual meeting was Trina Casner, President and CEO of Pana Community Hospital. Trina spoke about Pana Community Hospital’s plan to expand the hospital’s physical facility. Pana Community Hospital has been working closely with Farnsworth Group-an architect/engineer firm and O’Shea Builders as construction managers on the project. The project is designed in two phases. Phase I of the proposed project will create additional space for a new surgical suite, laboratory, diagnostic imaging, cardiopulmonary, materials management and dietary departments. Phase II of the proposed project will create additional space for an urgent care, improve access to the hospital building, and provide a contemporary waiting area with private registration offices. Pana Community Hospital awaits approval from the State of Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board to be able to proceed with the project.
The business meeting followed the program. Shirley DeClerk, who is in charge of staffing the volunteer desk at the hospital, reported that 20 volunteers donated 1800 hours of their time covering the front desk. Rachael Flesch-Springate gave a report on the Holiday Bazaar and thanked all those who helped make the annual event a success.
Elections were held to install new officers for the 2017 year. The slate of officers presented were; President-Candy Craig, Vice President-Luann Funk, Secretary-Helen Goddard, and Treasurer-Gina Trexler.
The Pana Community Hospital Auxiliary is an important organization within the hospital. The organization currently provides volunteer services including front desk and gift shop volunteers. The Auxiliary also offers financial support to the hospital for needed projects and upgrading of equipment.
