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

We are eager to share highlights of what's been happening at the Bronson Health Foundation over the summer, as well as a preview of upcoming events as we head into fall.

Register Today for the
Bronson Children's Hospital Run & Walk!

We hope to see you, your family and friends at the annual Bronson Children's
Hospital Run & Walk on Sunday, September 29 presented by Mall City Mechanical.

It's a great way to support our young patients and their families who come to Bronson Children's Hospital from communities throughout our nine-county region. When you sign-up for the event or make a donation, you are helping provide child life services, art and music therapy, and support for families with babies in the NICU. 

Each year, nearly 2,000 people attend this family-friendly event in downtown Kalamazoo. Children's activities take place between 9 a.m. and noon, with the run & walk starting at 10 a.m.

Visit to register, start a team, join a team, make a donation, or for more information!

And a special thank you to Miller Johnson Attorneys, our exclusive Email & Results Sponsor!

DeNooyer Family Makes Gift for Patients in Need

Through the generosity of the DeNooyer family, an endowment has been created to provide assistance for individuals and families when a medical crisis arises. The DeNooyer Family Patients in Need Endowment helps to cover out-of-pocket needs that can sometimes devastate families. This includes, but is not limited to, medical transportation, prescriptions, medical equipment, home health needs and other personal barriers to recovery.

"The Kalamazoo community has blessed our family and we are honored to bless others," says Michelle (DeNooyer) Hiller. "A medical crisis can leave families feeling uncertain of what tomorrow holds. Our prayer is that the Patients in Need Endowment would provide stability and hope to those Bronson serves."

Thank you to Southwestern Michigan Emergency Services, P.C. (SWMES), which recently presented the Bronson Health Foundation with a $50,000 gift. SWMES made the gift in recognition of its 50th anniversary. It will support the Foundation's Trauma and Emergency Services Fund.
SWMES provides full-time physician staffing for Bronson's four emergency departments in Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Paw Paw and South Haven. "The donation is a way to recognize our 50-year partnership with Bronson Healthcare," says Dr. Jim DeMoss, attending physician and president of SWMES. 

"The gift to the Trauma and Emergency Services Fund has special meaning for us, because it ultimately goes towards further helping the patients we serve each and every day," DeMoss adds. "Whether it funds new technology, facility improvements or innovative new ways of treating patients, we know it's going to make a difference for ill and injured people in southwest Michigan."
