From the desk of Harvest Foundation President Kate Keller
Twenty years — It’s been 20 years since the sale of the Memorial Hospital of Martinsville and Henry County that resulted in the creation of the Harvest Foundation.
For many of you, I’m sure this seems like yesterday. Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking with a person who served on the hospital board 20 years ago. It was their vision to create the foundation with the hope that it would be an amazing asset for the community. Their vision was right.
Throughout the year, we will be celebrating the last 20 years. We will, of course, publish a retrospect of significant moments for the foundation and the community. Harvest will launch a new website that should help us toward the next 20 years, and there will be some celebrations later in the year.
While there is much to celebrate and be proud of, the work continues. Our next five-year strategic plan is unfolding and tackling the relevant issues of today. And thanks to the vision of the hospital board 20 years ago, the Harvest Foundation will continue to be here working alongside MHC for many years to come.
