Department of the Month
If you’re reading this – THANK YOU!
Because the Heartbeat is just one of the many communication vehicles through which your ever dutiful Public Relations/Marketing and Foundation department tells the story of Alliance Community Hospital and its dedicated staff of Colleagues.
Under the guidance of Administrative Director Ryan Jensen, MHSA, the PR/Marketing and Foundation staff handles all internal and external communication, public and Colleague Relations, marketing and philanthropy – just to name a few of our responsibilities.
You can also witness our handiwork in the form of the weekly Pulse bulletin, the quarterly Healthscene magazine and in several television, radio, print and direct mail ads in and around town, as well as on the ACH website and in several other ways.
PR Foundation spearheads many in-house events and supports all ACH programs and service lines in terms of marketing and promotions. For instance, it is our pleasure to man the Colleague Campaign fundraiser, this year’s theme of which is "Let’s Work it Out!" benefitting Colleague Fitness and a cluster of other departments/areas of the hospital.
We also plan, coordinate and host several of the hospital’s most crucial and high-profile annual fundraising events, including: the ACH Charity Golf Classic, the Hospice fun run and walk, and the Charity Ball and Auction. Foundation also hosts a Gift Club Reception, as well as a Tree of Life Ceremony.
You’ll also see us at various in-house committee meetings and also representing the hospital at many events and functions within the community.
Patty Kimerer, Danielle Nesgoda and June Porter gladly tackle the PR/Marketing and Foundation duties that result in proud public promotion of ACH’s vital programs, services and most importantly, our fabulous Colleagues.
The Foundation recently welcomed Cookie Beach to the staff and PR is pleased to receive Samantha Kerns and Adam Gingrich as summer interns.
Samantha is a graduating senior from Kent State University who lives in Sebring and Adam is a junior at Mount Union College. Both will be lending a hand in the office and at ACH based or sponsored events through autumn.
Please join us in welcoming our new staffers and, as always, contact us at ext. 7575 if we can be of service. And, for those who may not know, we’re located in the medical plaza adjacent to the hospital – two doors down from the Sweat Shop. Stop by for a visit any time!
