NOCHS Gifted with Donations

NOCHS received two donations in May from the American Legion Post 28 and the North Ottawa Hospital Auxiliary. Together, the donations equaled more than $54,000 that will go towards patient care.

The North Ottawa Hospital Auxiliary presented NOCHS President and CEO, Shelleye Yaklin, with their annual donation at their spring luncheon. The funds were raised during the past year through donations to the Auxiliary, donations, the hospital Gift Shop and their membership. The funds will go towards item needed for the Emergency Department, Family Birthing Unit, Medical Imaging and Operating Rooms at NOCHS.


American Legion Post 28 members Jim Porenta, John Bilski and Edward DeKoekkoek presented NOCHS President & CEO, Shelleye Yaklin, with a generous donation toward pediatric care. More than 800 lbs of aluminum and steel pop tabs were collected last year and redeemed by Legion members for the donation. NOCHS was selected as its beneficiary because of its nearly 100 years of local service, caring for friends, neighbors and family in the community we share.
