& Queen Anne's Hospital
Land O'Lakes Dairy Co-op
Supports Local Hospital
dairy farmers, David Hill of Kennedyville, and Jeff Moore of Centreville,
represented the Land O'Lakes Foundation as they presented a $5,000
grant to Kent & Queen Anne's Hospital. The grant will be used
to help fund construction of a new emergency department and the expansion
of several other departments including radiological services and the
outpatient clinic that includes chemotherapy services.
"We are pleased to present this check to Kent & Queen Anne's
Hospital which continues to grow to meet our community's health care
needs," said Moore. Former Land O'Lakes member Roy Crow of Kennedyville,
who is also a member of the hospital's Foundation board, encouraged
the hospital to apply for the grant. "Our families and the families
of our neighbors depend on this hospital. It's a good feeling to be
able to contribute to such a good cause," Crow noted.
The grant was made available through the Land O'Lakes Foundation's
Mid-Atlantic grant program that provides Land O'Lakes dairy farmer
members in the Mid-Atlantic region the opportunity to help the rural
communities where they live and work. The Foundation is committed
to improving the quality of life in communities where it has members,
employees, plants and services. It has 2,300 dairy farmer members
in the Mid-Atlantic region.
& Queen Anne's Hospital Foundation board members and members
of Land O'Lakes agricultural cooperative "tool" up
to support the hospital's building project. The national, farmer-owned
co-op donated $5,000 to the project that includes a new emergency
department, an in-house MRI, diagnostic cardiac catheterization
lab, and expanded space for chemotherapy and surgical services.
