1930 Club Annual Appeal

Nearly every day we read or hear on national news about a horrible accident or disaster somewhere in the world. We breathe a sigh of relief that this event did not happen here. BUT, we are not immune from tragedy.

When you or a family member is ill or injured, where do you turn? If you’re like most in our community, you go to Wilson Health because you know that you will receive absolute top-notch medical care.

Wilson Health’s advanced technology and our dedicated medical team can diagnose and treat your condition without the necessity of having to travel far from home. And you also know that you’ll be treated like a real person, by dedicated, compassionate health professionals in a warm, friendly and caring environment.

Now, consider for a moment how this scenario would change if Wilson were not right here in Shelby County to provide care close to home.

In 2015, there were 29,121 people who came into Wilson’s Emergency Department in need of care. That is nearly sixty percent of the approximately 49,000 residents of Shelby County. If you have never visited Wilson’s Emergency Department, you are truly fortunate indeed.

Recently a young woman in her early 30’s, with tears of gratitude in her eyes, shared with me that when she was twelve years old, her father’s life was saved when came to Wilson’s emergency department with a major heart attack. She is very grateful to Wilson’s staff. Her father is alive and well and was able to walk her down the aisle on her wedding day.

There were17 stroke patients who arrived at Wilson’s ED and received tPA, a stroke medication that, if administered within one hour of arrival, significantly improves the patient’s recovery.

Accidents and illness never take a holiday; and neither do Wilson Health and its staff of exceptional physicians and nurses. They are always here for you Caring Without Limits twenty-four hours a day every single day of the year.
