Mercy Medical Center Redding (MMCR) is pleased to announce the launch of a new online gift shop to benefit the hospital. The new gift shop, located online at: http://redding.mercy.org/Patients_And_Visitors/Mercy_Guilds_Online_Gift_Shop/index.htm allows the hospital to keep its virtual doors open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Friends and family, whether local or out of town, have the ability to purchase gifts for loved ones in the hospital that will also benefit the Mercy Guild.
The new shop offers an array of flowers and gifts specially selected for MMCR patients. The collection includes cheerful get-well gifts, new baby or new mom gifts and a special assortment for pediatric patients. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Mercy Guild in support of hospital and patient needs.
“We’re thrilled to support Mercy Redding in this new venture,” said Jim Thomas, President of HospitalGiftShop.com, the company who hosts and operates the new site on behalf of MMCR. “We firmly believe that our personal touch brings a message of support, caring and commitment to patients that echoes the hospital’s own healing mission,” he said.
HospitalGiftShop.com, formerly Get Well Gifts, has been hosting online gift shops in partnership with local hospitals since 1999. For additional information on the new gift shop, please contact Megan Loveless, Public Relations Coordinator, MMCR or Jim Thomas, President, HospitalGiftShop.com.
