Henry Mayo Employees Donate Over $1 Million for New Patient Tower

Generous contributions fuel three-year Employee Giving Campaign

Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital employees gathered at The Canyon on September 25 to mark a milestone in the Employee Giving Campaign, a fundraising effort launched three years ago supporting construction of the new patient tower. The Employee Giving Campaign has been a critical component in Henry Mayo’s ongoing “Building for Your Health” capital campaign and has attracted over 600 participants.

Since 2016, Henry Mayo staffers have donated over $1 million through the Employee Giving Campaign. By comparison, this is roughly the same amount donated by employees in the 41 years spanning the hospital’s opening in 1975 and the start of the campaign in 2016.

“Giving back to our hospital represents who we are as an organization and as employees,” said Henry Mayo’s Jennifer Fitzpatrick, Director of Critical Care 
Services. “We are committed, we are kind, we are generous with our time, money and talents, but most of all, WE CARE about our patients.” 

Led by Fitzpatrick and Dustin Ashenfelter, RN, Henry Mayo’s Director of Emergency & Trauma Services, employees have enthusiastically supported the giving campaign at varying levels. Many people chose to donate an hour or more of their pay every pay period through automatic payroll deductions, earning them the highest donor distinction of “Boss.” 
In addition to community support, the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation relies on generous donations from hospital employees, physicians, volunteers, board members, and past donors for its capital campaigns and fundraising efforts. To date, the overall campaign has raised almost $10 million. IYH
