Oregon Wash. CUs raise 879000 for CUs for Kids
BEAVERTON, Ore. (7/1/09)--Credit unions in Oregon and Southwest Washington raised more than $879,000 during their 2008 campaign year for Credit Unions for Kids. It was the second highest one-year amount raised in the program's 23-year history for the two states. The funds complete the $1 million commitment credit unions made to Doernbecher Pediatric Neurosciences Research Progam at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU). The funds will be used to recruit another researcher to the team, secure core equipment and activate a robust lab, which will be named for Credit Unions for Kids, in recognition of the donation. The funds also complete the $70,000 goal for two birth suites at the new Women's Birth Center at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene, Ore., as well as a $40,000 goal for a Giraffe NICU Bed for specialized care for the smallest premature babies at Rogue Valley Medical Center in Medford, Ore. New fundraising goals include:
* Doernbecher Children's Hospital: A two-year $1 million goal to fund the professorship of Dr. Robert Steiner, who specializes in inborn errors of metabolism and osteogenesis imperfecta; * Sacred Heart Medical Center: A one-year $75,000 goal for a pediatric patient room and a labor and delivery triage room; and * Rogue Valley Medical Center: A two-year $45,000 goal for a HUGS Security System for the Pediatric Department to alert the nursing station whenever a pediatric patient is within a few feet of an exit door.
