GraceMed Meets Mabee Foundation Challenge
An additional donation from Stormont-Vail Health helped to ensure GraceMed met the challenge and received the grant funding from the foundation.
“GraceMed is such an important partner in our community,” said Randy Peterson, Stormont Vail Health President & CEO. “Being able to provide additional financial support to help them secure the Mabee funds, along with a number of other community organizations and individuals, better ensures access to quality healthcare for anyone in need.”
The new clinic at 1400 SW Huntoon, which opened on August 13, serves as Topeka’s hub clinic for operations.
“The support GraceMed has received from the community has been tremendous,” said Dave Sanford, Chief Executive Officer. “Building this clinic in the heart of Topeka and offering high quality health care ensures we will be able to better meet the needs of the community for years to come.”
GraceMed received a $1 million grant from Health Resources Services Administration, followed by commitments from the Shawnee County Board of County Commissioners, Stormont Vail Health and the St. Francis Foundation/SCL.
In April 2017, the capital campaign officially launched Project Wellspring and the Capitol Federal® Foundation kicked things off with a $500,000 donation, which was followed by substantial gifts from Security Benefit Corporation, the Lewis H. Humphreys Charitable Trust, Sunderland Foundation, AIM 5 Foundation, Kansas Gas Service, as well as numerous individuals.
Donors will be recognized on the Hopecare Cross in the Patient Waiting Area/Lounge. An event to recognize donors will take place in the spring.
