Annual Fall Gala Dinner & Silent Auction
The Eaton Rapids Medical Center Auxiliary continues to support our doctors, hospital and staff to bring exceptional healthcare to members of our community. In addition to countless hours of volunteer service, we have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to ensure that we all enjoy the latest medical technology right here in Eaton Rapids! Thanks to your generous support, the Auxiliary raised $8,941 at last year's event, which enabled us to purchase a new Bladder Scanner for the Medical Center.
We are busy planning our 8th Annual Fall Gala Dinner & Auction, which will be held at The English Inn, on Friday, October 23, 2015. Three Men and a Tenor are back this year by popular demand!
We are hoping you will consider a contribution to this event. This could be done in various ways:
Entertainment sponsor (includes 2 tickets and public recognition): $300
Table sponsor (includes 2 tickets): $200
Ticket to event: $50
Silent auction items: priceless
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the event, or if you would like to participate in some way. Thank you for your consideration.

American Hospital Association recognizes ERMC leader
Eaton Rapids Medical Center (ERMC) President & Chief Executive Officer Timothy Johnson received the American Hospital Association's Grassroots Champion Award for Michigan at the 2015 Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) Annual Meeting on Thursday, June 25. The award is presented to hospital leaders who most effectively educate elected officials on how major issues affect the hospital's vital role in the community, who have broadened the base of community support for the hospital, and are tireless advocates for hospital patients. Each year, the American Hospital Association recognizes one hospital leader in each state.
Johnson serves on the board of many organizations locally and statewide, including the Professional Credential Verification Services and HPS, a group purchasing organization. He joined the MHA Board of Trustees in 2013 and serves as current president of the Eaton Rapids Rotary Club. Johnson has also been invited on more than one occasion to visit Washington D.C. to speak to legislators regarding the importance of rural hospitals.
The American Hospital Association is the national organization that represents and serves all types of hospitals, health care networks, and their patients and communities. Nearly 5,000 hospitals, health care systems, networks, other providers of care and 43,000 individual members come together to form the Association.

Scholarship recipients observe surgeries at ERMC
Eaton Rapids High School graduates Jared McDaniel and Emily Olin recently had the opportunity to observe surgeries performed by Dr. Jeffrey Deppen, Chief of Surgery at Eaton Rapids Medical Center (ERMC). McDaniel and Olin were presented the fifth-annual ERMC Foundation Scholarship Award earlier this year during the Senior Honors Convocation. In addition to the $1,000 scholarship, the Medical Center invites the recipients to view surgical procedures.
"I was able to see a gall bladder procedure on Monday," stated McDaniel. "It was a great experience. It just confirmed how much I'm going to love the medical field."
In the fall, McDaniel will be attending Concordia University and Olin will be attending Lansing Community College. Both recipients were involved in many extracurricular and community service activities during their time at Eaton Rapids High School, while maintaining a high grade point average.
The ERMC Foundation began offering the $1,000 scholarship in 2011 to high school seniors who plan to pursue a registered nursing degree. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide local students with assistance in entering the healthcare field.
