Gold Bank Commits $50K to Hospital Learning Center

Gold Bank officials, Leonard Wolfe and Jim Schulze, present Hospital Foundation Board Chairman, Chuck Stuart and Clay County Medical Center CEO, Ron Bender with a check for $50,000.
Gold Bank officials announced today that they have donated $50,000 to the Clay County Hospital Foundation to be used for converting a portion of Clay County Medical Center's 709 building into an learning center.

Since the current learning center was built in 1992, a number of things have changed at Clay County Medical Center, creating the need to move it out of the main building. According to hospital officials, the main change has been added patient services.

"In route to adding and growing existing services to meet community health needs, we have outgrown the main facility," said Clay County Medical Center administrator, Ron Bender. Bender added that by having the learning center located in the 709 building, patient services can continue to remain under one roof and the hospital can continue its strong educational focus.

"Gold Bank is committed to ensuring Clay County Medical Center's ability to deliver continuing education needs to its health care workers and the community," said Gold Bank president, Jim Schulze. Each year, various education programs are held in the hospital's learning center for its 211 employees and the community.

"We appreciate Gold Bank's contribution to the Hospital Foundation for this project. It will help alleviate some space issues and at the same time allow us to continue the education programs that give our staff the knowledge they need to deliver excellent care," Bender said.

The project is expected to get underway in late 2003 or early 2004.
