SCKMC’s current financial situation has prompted several donations recently. Local businesses including LG Pike Construction, RCB Bank, Union State Bank, Rogers Family Dentistry and Ark City Industries, contributed to the total of $40,000 for the recruitment of new physician Dr. Willie Posey. The SCKMC Auxiliary purchased a commercial-grade lawn mower to allow hospital maintenance staff to provide the facility’s lawn care. In addition, several individual donations have been received for a variety of purposes including patient linens, general operations, and expenses related to the ongoing one-percent sales tax campaign.
“We have had an overwhelming show of support from staff, the community, and local businesses. The commitment is amazing to me. The community is rallying behind this hospital and we are so grateful for what everyone has done and what they will continue to do for this organization,” said Holly Harper, SCKMC’s Chief Financial Officer.
