Changes are coming to the employee giving campaign at MHP. Did you know that MHP employees give over $100,000 each year to support MHP and our patients?

So, why would we make changes? We have a few good reasons!

The MHP Giving Tree is the name used to recognize the group of employees who make annual contributions to the MHP Foundation. They are about to complete their five year pledge to raise $500,000 to support the construction of the MHP Medical Center. This is an exciting achievement, and the MHP Giving Tree committee would love for our employees to keep up their momentum and motivation for giving to the Foundation. They have elected to use this accomplishment as a spring board to do even more for our organization and our patients.

The committee spent some time in retreat, and came up with the idea of moving our focus from construction--bricks and mortar--to program--the staff that make up MHP. We have this awesome new "facility" that helps "facilitate" care. What can we do to help our staff do an even better job of caring for our patients?

So, starting in 2020, the Foundation will call for proposals from staff for projects that meet at least three of the five MPH Pillars of Excellence:

    • Delivering quality clinical outcomes
    • Providing a quality customer experience
    • Recruiting, developing, retaining quality people.
    • Applying quality financial practices
    • Promoting and embracing enterprise wide growth.

The five pillars of excellence are one reason we've chosen the hand logo for the campaign and the slogan "Together we are_______."

There are five fingers on the hand, and there are so many things it can represent:

    • The five pillars of excellence
    • $500,000 in support from the MHP Giving Tree to MHP
    • Five years
    • High five for great work!
    • Providing a helping hand
    • All hands on deck

Making this change to the campaign comes at just the right time. MHP's 100 year anniversary is in 2024. That's five years away, giving our MHP Giving Tree another five year pledge opportunity. We think "A Million for MHP" sounds pretty good!

Keep an eye on this awesome committee and our awesome employees as they get ready to do even more awesome things!
