Robbie Nicol, Executive Director of the Yavapai Regional Medical Center Foundation, announced the Foundation’s receipt of a $15,000 donation from Wells Fargo. This donation will support Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s Partners for Healthy Students program. In 2015, the program’s School-Based Kids Health Clinics and the Mobile Kids Health Clinicprovided no-cost health services to uninsured and underinsured children through more than 1,300 visits.
This program, now in its 17th year, is a great example of YRMC’s expanded view of health. “While health will always be associated with healthcare, at YRMC we believe it also extends to family, school, work and community life,” said Nicol. “Through our Partners for Healthy Students program we help children stay healthy and in the classroom where they are active and alert and striving to achieve academic excellence.”
“Strengthening the communities we serve for current and future generations is at the core of Wells Fargo’s Vision and Values,” said David Dinerman, Wells Fargo Business Relationship Manager. “Through strategic relationships with outstanding nonprofit organizations such as Yavapai Regional Medical Center and investments in worthy programs such as Partners for Healthy Students, we’re creating solutions that strengthen people, families, and communities.”
“We are extremely grateful to Wells Fargo for their continued support,” said Amy Negovan, CPNP, Program Director, Partners for Healthy Students. “We can’t eliminate illness, but we can and do foster health. Our program positively impacts children, their parents, their teachers, and their fellow students every day. We are honored to provide these important services for our community.”
The YRMC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that raises charitable support for Yavapai Regional Medical Center programs, facilities, and healthcare services.
