The healing power of kindness is present in every gift.
It is our privilege to pass it on.

As we welcome Fall in southwest Michigan, we are pleased to share stories that highlight the continued support from all of you. Thank you for your inspiring generosity!

1st Source Bank Generously Supports Rapid Response Fund
We are grateful to 1st Source Bank for their gift of $10,000 to our Rapid Response Fund.

"1st Source Bank is proud to support our community by making this contribution to Bronson's Rapid Response Fund during this critical time" said Lanny Scoby, community president.

This gift will focus on assisting Bronson employees with their needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, including supporting our employee respite rooms and addressing childcare needs. 

The Rapid Response Fund has already supported many programs and services across the Bronson Healthcare System including new equipment and technology and resources for employees.
Wilmanski Match
Challenge Completed
In just six weeks, our community came together, responded to the match established by Dr. Charles and Nuala Wilmanski and raised nearly $70,000 in support of the Rapid Response Fund.

Funds from this matching gift will go specifically to Bronson Battle Creek for ongoing needs such as PPE, testing, facility modifications, and mental health support.

We are grateful to all who gave to help us complete this challenge and make an impact for our patients, families, and employees.

Bringing the Comforts of Home to Bronson
Children's Hospital
Because of the generosity of a group of our Donor Advised Fund donors, every patient room in our Bronson Children's Hospital Pediatrics Unit has been outfitted with a mini refrigerator. This helps provide convenience and comfort for both patients and caregivers.
“These pediatric fridges are so helpful to families spending time at Bronson Children's Hospital. My daughter is a very picky eater, so making sure she has some of her favorites is vital! Someone has to stay with her all the time, so it is nice to be able to keep some snacks and drinks close by!” says Kylee Ridge, parent of pediatric patient.
