Planting Seeds of Generosity From May 1 to May 18, every OakBend team member is invited to join the annual giving campaign by making a personal gift. Your gift of any amount will make a difference.
The employee giving campaign is a powerful opportunity for you to be a part of a patients healing process and brings us closer to our vision of being the community’s first choice in healthcare. In 2017, employees gave more than $90,000 to the employee giving campaign.
All gifts received from the 2018 employee campaign will benefit Vision 2020.
Vision 2020 is a comprehensive renovation plan that will bring the most advanced concepts for a healing environment to OakBend Medical Center. Launched in May 2015, the campaign has already resulted in significant improvements at OakBend’s historical home in Downtown Richmond.
Progress from the campaign was seen immediately beginning with updates to the building’s exterior and landscaping in the fall of 2015. Additional projects that have been completed as part of the campaign include renovations to the Jackson Street Emergency Care Center and the Skilled Nursing Facility. Major renovations are currently planned for the hospital’s two largest medical-surgical units on the fourth and fifth floors.
Future Vision 2020 projects include the expansion of the ACE Unit, additional upgrades in the ICU and Skilled Nursing Facility, and renovations to the hospital’s common areas including main hallways, restrooms and cafeteria. When complete, Vision 2020 will create an environment of care that inspires patients and their families and fosters faster healing.
