For the physicians and staff of Shady Grove Fertility, helping build families is at the core of what this practice is all about. What inspires us is that the grit and resilience that we see every day in our patients is also evident in the families and first responders affected by Hurricane Harvey
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) September 14, 2017
Shady Grove Fertility, the nation’s largest fertility center with more babies born than any other center in the United States, rallied the support of physicians and team members to support the local hurricane relief efforts operating through The Warren Center in North Dallas. Raising more than $6,000 and counting, physician and staff donations made it possible to send an assortment of nearly 5,100 essentials to the affected regions—essentials such as baby formula, diapers, children’s clothing, toiletries, and more.
SGF Patient Financial Services team member, Maria Patswald, whose family was among those affected in a hard-hit region, “To me, this is what Shady Grove Fertility is about. I’m so proud to be a part of the SGF family.”
Shady Grove Fertility sent the essential supplies via Amazon Prime, which included free shipping, for immediate deployment, meaning 100 percent of the money collected went toward the cost of supplies.
Tori Wilkinson, a Clinical Coordinator in SGF’s Rockville, MD office, added, “At Shady Grove Fertility, we don't just make families, we help them too.”
“For the physicians and staff of Shady Grove Fertility, helping build families is at the core of what this practice is all about. Supporting these relief efforts provided us an opportunity to help rebuild all that the families of Texas have lost. What inspires us is that the grit and resilience that we see every day in our patients is also evident in the families and first responders affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said Jason Bromer, M.D., of Shady Grove Fertility’s Frederick and Hagerstown, MD offices.
Additional fundraisers are in the works to assist the families in Florida.
