Morrow County Hospital is warming up the griddle, getting ready for a pancake breakfast this Saturday to help support the hospital’s Levy Renewal Campaign.
The breakfast accompanies the blood profiles being done that morning in the lower level of the hospital, and MCH CEO Chad ‘CJ’ Miller said they are expecting between 500-700 people to take advantage of that day’s blood profile program, which is held several times a year.
“We thought it would be a great opportunity in September to have the breakfast fundraiser for the levy campaign,” he said in a Sept. 9 interview. “We started the levy campaign at the fair, handing out information and fans. This is the next main event, and we’ll be doing speaking engagements throughout the month of September and October.”
The levy renewal is 2.5 mills for 5 years and supports the hospital’s daily operational costs and future improvements. The county-owned hospital has been part of the community since 1952 and has gone through many changes over the years. Being a member of OhioHealth has allowed for more services, with updated technological equipment and an increased number of board certified staff members. Five satellite locations give MCH the opportunity to make specialized health care more accessible to the public – and more growth is on the way.
The breakfast is being held Sept. 19 from 6 – 11 a.m. for a donation of $5 per adult and $3 per child (10 and under). Take out meals are available.
