Healthcare Employees Give $400,000 to Children's Health Center

Funds to Be Used for New Clinic to Assist Underserved Pediatric Patients 

MACON, GA (Tuesday, January 13, 2015) – The employees of Navicent Health, through an employee giving campaign, have presented a donation of $400,000 to the Children's Health Center (CHC), a service of Children's Hospital, Navicent Health.

On Monday, January 12, administrators and representatives of Navicent Health; Children's Hospital, Navicent Health; Medcen Community Health Foundation, Navicent Health and the Healthcare Employees Achieving Tomorrow (HEAT) campagin presented the donation to pediatricians and representatives of CHC. The funds will be used to relocate CHC, an outpatient pediatric clinic currently located at 744 First Street. The clinic, which primarily provides care to the underserved, has outgrown its current facility, constructed in 1965.


The funds provided to CHC are contributed through HEAT, a charitable giving program of the Medcen Foundation. The program is comprised of Navicent Health employees who support the community's healthcare needs through financial contributions. Employees may give a one-time gift, or choose to have a certain amount deducted from each paycheck.


“At Navicent Health, we have phenomenal employees who truly care about the health needs of our community. They do not just come to work to do a job and go home, but go above and beyond their job duties to willingly commit a portion of their income to support community healthcare initiatives,” said Dr. Ninfa M. Saunders, President and CEO of Navicent Health.

Approximately 43 percent of Navicent Health's employees contribute to the Medcen Foundation through HEAT. Since its inception in 1992, HEAT has contributed more than $2 million to hospital projects and local charitable healthcare initiatives.
