Report Provides Easy-to-Read Graphics on Shepherd Center’s Vital Donor Support

The Shepherd Center Foundation Annual Report includes patient admission stats, update on capital campaigns and fundraising for more than 20 patient programs.

Through the generosity of donors, Shepherd Center continues to provide world-class care for thousands of patients and families who are dealing with spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis and other neuromuscular conditions. This year, U.S. News and World Report once again ranked Shepherd Center as one of the top 10 U.S. rehabilitation hospitals.

Shepherd Center, which treats patients from around the nation and throughout the world, provides more than 20 programs and services that are not reimbursed by insurance providers, but are integral to the successful recovery and community reintegration of patients. This level of excellence is possible only through the generous support of donors.

The Shepherd Center Foundation has just published its 2015 annual report to thank donors and keep them informed about the ways in which their gifts help the hospital to continue “restoring hope and rebuilding lives.” The report is available here as a PDF download. You may also download it from the link above.

The brief, easy-to-read annual report includes graphics showing patient admissions statistics, bullet points highlighting activities of the donor-funded recreation therapy program, an update on the hospital’s capital campaigns and the renovation and expansion projects they are funding, a fundraising and giving graphic, and a chart summarizing Shepherd Center’s financial and operating numbers.
