Genesys launches campaign to "baby" our community

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) On Thursday, June 28, from 6 pm to 9 pm, Genesys Health Foundation will kick off a $1.8 million capital campaign to improve the care of new mothers and babies in this community, and help reduce the number of high-risk pregnancies in Genesee County.
"Party with the Pros" on the 16th hole of Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc - the home of the Buick Open - takes place at the homes of Lou and Melanie Dortch, Rich and Debbie Nemesi, and Jeff and Joan Powell. Golf pros playing at the Buick Open will be on hand to support this kick off event.

Goal of the Genesys capital campaign is to establish a Level IIB Special Care Nursery at Genesys Regional Medical Center-Health Park, and increase the level of obstetrical care for high risk mothers and their babies.

Infant morbidity and mortality rates in Genesee County continue to remain among the highest in the nation, and Genesys hopes to change that through this capital campaign, reports Nick Evans, vice president of the Genesys Health Foundation. With these funds, Genesys will construct and equip a comprehensive Special Care Nursery (from Level IIA to Level IIB) and upgrade its Family Birthing Center.

According to Rich Nemesi, one of the "Party with the Pros" hosts, "Genesys is an important part of our community. It has great people doing great things for others. I believe it is in the best interest of this region to continue helping Genesys to maintain the best level of care and service, particularly for our community's women and children. Supporting this capital campaign will make that possible."

For more information on the Genesys capital campaign to help new mothers and babies in this community, call the Genesys Health Foundation at 810-606-6387.
