Wells Fargo makes lead gift to RMH Pediatrics

RUSHVILLE — On behalf of Wells Fargo Bank, Bruce Everhart, Marissa Taylor, and Theresa Alexander recently presented $5,000.00 towards the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation Kedo’s Kids Campaign to Rush Memorial Hospital President and CEO Brad Smith and RMH Foundation Executive Director Faith Mock. These monies are helping build a new pediatric office building located at 1339 North Cherry Street in Rushville. “Wells Fargo Bank has been on board with this building project from the beginning. They see the need and support the new building. We thank them so much for being a business lead in this pediatric building project,” stated Mock.

The new pediatric office building is one that is long overdue in the community. It will be a tremendous addition to the services offered at Rush Memorial Hospital. “What a wonderful addition to the community. The building structure is well thought out and the community can be so proud of this office building,” commented Bruce Everhart, Vice President of Wells Fargo Bank in Rushville after touring the construction site. Local bank branch manager Marissa Taylor added, “Dr. Kedo saved my child’s life. He found the problem and acted on it immediately. I am very grateful to him and RMH Pediatrics”. Mock continued by saying, “With the retirement of local physicians and the fact that people wish to have health services provided locally, we know that RMH Pediatrics is growing. Dr. Kedo has had 4,000 patient visits in the last year and this new facility will allow for growth. The building will be accessible, spacious, modern with an environment that families will be proud to support.”

Tom and Edna Moster, along with Greg and Theresa Alexander, are serving as community chairs for the Kedo’s Kids Campaign to raise $670,000.00 for the new Pediatric Office Building. The campaign is well underway and all donations to the Pediatric Office Building Fund can be made online at www.rushmemorial.com or by sending the donation to the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation, 1300 North Main Street, P.O. Box 215, Rushville, Indiana 46173. A special opportunity is available to those individuals, organizations, and/or families that wish to give a gift of $1,000.00. These donors will be able to have an engraved block displayed in the new pediatric office building. The block can be engraved with their name, in honor of, or in memory of someone special. The goal is to have 100 members in “The 1,000” that will support and leave a legacy of providing the best healthcare for the youngest patients in our community. At this time, there are 20 members of “The 1,000”. Everyone is encouraged to join. The $1,000.00 can be a one-time gift or pledged over 12 months. As the campaign slogan says “It’s For the Kids”. Contact Faith Mock at the RMH Foundation office at 765-932-7568 or at faith.mock@rushmemorial.com for more information.
