You’re invited…Join Physicians Circle 2015!

Thank you for your continued commitment to Rockford Health System, our patients and their family members. We invite you, our valued Rockford Health System physicians --  both current and retired – to  join the Physicians Circle of the Rockford Memorial Development Foundation in 2015.  Your personal gift to the Foundation of $500 or more this calendar year not only qualifies you for membership in the Physicians Circle, but also helps support the Rockford Health System mission of “Superior Care.  Every Day.  For All Our Patients.”  Gifts to the Foundation make a difference.  Our goal is to reach 100 members in the Physicians Circle – Will you please help us reach this goal?   

Here are some things the Foundation has done to support medical excellence at Rockford Health System:

  • Each year the Foundation chooses a fundraising focus for the year. This year we are supporting Pediatrics and we look forward to seeing improvements funded by philanthropy soon.
  • Last year, we provided 100% of the funds to add the new linear accelerator in the Cancer Center – treating patients more quickly and in a reduced period of time than ever before.
  • We have supported improvements in the Women’s Center, the NICU, Adult Critical Care and more.
  • Through the RHS Family Campaign, more staff are able to participate in education and training than our budget would otherwise allow, countless care and comfort items are purchased for patients and their family members and more than $400,000 in crisis assistance has been provided to our employees.
  • The Foundation continues to provide for medical and dental care for children in our community via the Ronald McDonald CareMobile, and patient education materials as well as equipment needed in departments.

Remember:

  • Total gifts of $500 or more during a calendar year qualify physicians for membership in the Physicians Circle. 
  • Annual gifts of $1,000 or more are eligible for recognition at the Triumvirate Recognition Society Dinner.
  • Lifetime total giving of $10,000 or more qualifies for Permanent Triumvirate Membership and inclusion of your name on the beautiful glass donor wall in the hospital lobby.

To recognize our annual Physicians Circle Donors, we will:

  • List your name on the website as part of the “Physicians Circle” honor roll.
  • Include your name in the Foundation’s annual report list of Physicians Circle Donors.
  • Send you a 2015 Physicians Circle pin to wear.
  • Invite you to special events hosted by the Foundation.
