Cornerstone Superstar: MaineGeneral Health
MaineGeneral Health’s mission to enhance the health of people in the community extends well beyond the walls of its facilities. As a decades-long supporter of United Way programs, MaineGeneral and its staff will contribute a total of $72,478 to improve the well-being of local people in 2019.
Through a corporate gift and donations from many generous employees, MaineGeneral again positions itself as one of United Way’s 12 Cornerstone Partners, which collectively make up more than 53 percent of UWKV’s annual campaign. These companies most recently contributed more than $900,000 to the Kennebec Valley community. With MaineGeneral’s support, United Way increased its overall fundraising total by 5 percent, raising a record-breaking $1,745,000 for 48 local nonprofit organizations.
Chuck Hays, President & CEO of MaineGeneral Health, and his wife Maria, a professor at the University of Maine at Augusta, served as United Way’s 2017 campaign chairs, committing leadership, time and support to mobilize the caring power of our community. Maria Hays now serves as chair of United Way’s Board of Directors and participates on several UWKV subcommittees. Each year, several hospital employees volunteer for United Way’s Allocations Committee to apportion funds to programs that address basic needs, financial stability, health and education.
In addition to facilitating a successful annual campaign, MaineGeneral hosts the United Way’s food collection shelves and supports Day of Caring, UWKV’s annual event that connects students from 17 local schools with volunteer projects.
MaineGeneral Health is an integrated, not-for-profit health care system that provides a wide range of services throughout Kennebec Valley. MaineGeneral opened a 192-bed, state-of-the-art hospital—the Alfond Center for Health—in Augusta in 2013.
