In May, Willamette Valley Medical Center (WVMC) celebrated the 20th anniversary of LifePoint Health, the health system of which it is a part, with a donation to Juliette’s House. This donation is part of a national anniversary celebration in which LifePoint has contributed $2,000 to causes in each of the 89 communities it serves nationwide. At WVMC, the hospital team chose Juliette’s House because it reflects LifePoint’s and WVMC’s mission of Making Communities Healthier®.
“We are delighted to celebrate LifePoint Health’s 20th anniversary in our community with a donation to Juliette’s House,” said Peter Hofstetter, Chief Executive Officer of WVMC. “LifePoint was founded on the idea that everyone deserves quality healthcare close to home and that strong hospitals create strong communities.”
LifePoint was founded in May 1999 as LifePoint Hospitals with 23 community hospitals in nine states. Today, LifePoint has 89 hospital campuses, 45+ post-acute service providers and facilities and 50+ outpatient facilities across 30 states. It has nearly 60,000 dedicated employees from coast to coast, including more than 3,000 employed providers and more than 8,600 affiliated providers.
As part of its national anniversary celebration, LifePoint has committed $2,000 to support causes in each of its communities. Hospitals within these communities were encouraged to select a charitable cause of their choice that reflects the needs of their respective regions. WVMC chose Juliette’s House through a survey of hospital staff to determine the cause most important to them and the community at-large.
“LifePoint is dedicated to creating places where people choose to come for healthcare, physicians want to practice and employees want to work,” said David Dill, president and CEO of LifePoint Health. “We are thrilled to be celebrating a 20-year legacy of Making Communities Healthier with our employees, physicians, board members and volunteers across the nation. We are proud of how far we have come in the last two decades and are excited to continue to collaborate with the talented team at Willamette Valley Medical Center to advance our mission in the years ahead.”
