Why We Give ...

Eric and Paula Gohman

We donate to the Employee Campaign because we care about the health and well-being of our family, friends, and community — and we believe CentraCare does as well.

The Employee Campaign is our chance to give back and live the mission that drew us into health care. Every day, we see the positive impact of employee giving on our patients and their families. For example, the clinic was able to purchase additional vital sign machines thanks to employee giving. Staff use these machines every day, and they save valuable time and steps. The extra vital sign machines also have helped to increase our patient hypertension and vascular care quality scores due to their availability and accuracy. This means our patients are getting the thorough care they deserve more often and more efficiently.

CentraCare has been a great employer and has blessed us with opportunities and a platform to help our community with their health and wellbeing needs. The Employee Campaign is a meaningful way for us to give back to CentraCare, our co-workers and our patients in a way that “just makes us feel good.”
