Truman Medical Center's tradition of giving sets us apart from other
business and distinguishes us as a hospital that cares.
Each year, employees are given the opportunity to give back to the
hospital through the Proud to be Truman Campaign.
Proud to be Truman is an employee-sponsored program organized by a
committee of TMC employee volunteers to raise money annually for projects
that directly benefit TMC patient care. Each year, projects are
selected for Hospital Hill, Lakewood, and Behavioral Health. Projects
typically include enhancements to the hospital that improve the delivery of
patient care or patient satisfaction and create a pleasing experience for
the patients of TMC.
Since 2003, employees have contributed more than $200,000 to Truman
Medical Centers through the campaign.
Employee contributions have provided landscaping and shrubbery around the
walking trail and a meditation garden for employees and visitors at our
Lakewood Campus; a transportation van and purchase of a bariatric wheelchair
and an indoor scooter to enable patients an easier mode of transportation
around the hospital at Hospital Hill; and well as patio beautifications at
our Behavioral Health location.
