Letter to the Editor:
The 2020 Murray County Medical Center Foundation golf tournament again was a great success ..We want to thank all the 19 teams that participated. A special thank you to the sponsors and donors and especially to our local businesses who provided gift cards/prizes that made our event more special. We also want to thank the personnel at the Slayton County Club for helping to organize the event---the Murray County Pork Producers for grilling the pork burgers---Kevin Vickerman for donating the pork burgers—Van Bully’s for making and donating the pasta salad---Murray County Medical Center dietary department for the cookies and chips---Culligan for donating cases of water. The businesses that donated prizes were: Murray County News, Murray County Wheel/Herald, Midwest Supply, Steve’s Auto Body and Glass, Painted Prairie Winery, Prairie Lakes Family Dentistry, Bomgaards, The Hut, Plaid Moose, Pizza Ranch, Grain Exchange, Hometown Meats, Gary’s Service, Subway, Almich’s, Left Bank, and the Wellness Center. (If I missed anyone I am truly sorry). And to the winning team –the DeLong Team who donated their winnings right back to the Foundation--- we truly say “Thank You”
Many may ask ---how is the money spent that is raised by the Foundation. All the money goes right back to Murray County Medical Center and is used to purchase necessary equipment that will enlarge and expand our services. Last year the funds were used to expand our pediatric department under Dr. Mishra’s guidance. This year the money raised will be used to establish/ enlarge our “wound care” services. A special bed and chair will be purchased to prevent skin breakdown on those patients that are bed ridden. This program is under the direction of our newest ER provider---Jennifer Hillestad CNP-FND-WOCN---- who specializes in wound management.
Murray County Medical Center strongly supports the Slayton Chamber of Commerce and our local businesses. During these difficult times we need to work together –support each other and “Buy Locally”
