Fundraising for the “Building for a Healthy Future” campaign for the Clyde Family Physicians clinic recently surpassed the halfway point of the goal.
Donations and pledges totaling $76,600 have been raised since the start of the campaign. The goal of the effort is to raise $150,000 to pay for the furnishings, fixtures and equipment in the clinic.
“The financial support from the community has been amazing, right from the start,” said Dan Thalmann, campaign director for the Clay County Hospital Foundation-Clyde campaign. “We raised over $70,000 in the first two weeks and we’re thrilled to hit the halfway point so quickly. We’ll be starting another unique funding drive within this effort soon and we’ll be getting word out on this project through the mail, for anyone interested in donating toward the project.”
Part of the campaign included naming rights for rooms within the clinic.
“There were 14 rooms available for naming rights, and eight of them have already been reserved by local businesses, medical providers and staff of the clinic and by local supporters of the clinic,” said Thalmann. “These pledges really show how important local healthcare is to the community as well as our medical providers commitment to their patients.”
The new modern, comprehensive medical clinic is being built at the northeast corner of Washington and N. High Streets in Clyde. The site is really starting to take shape, with foundation walls being poured this past week and other infrastructural work being completed. The framing of the building is slated to begin within the next couple weeks. Plans are to open the new clinic by February.
