Gresham, OR. Mount Hood Medical Foundation recently raised almost $60,000 at its annual golf tournament to support the expansion of cardiac services at Legacy Mount Hood Medical Center. Jeff Ganz, pictured above, explains, “This tournament is great fun every year, and this year was no exception. We had to overcome COVID and then a smoked out valley, but in the end, we made it through and really enjoyed ourselves.” Ganz is a Trustee for the Mount Hood Medical Center Foundation and feels strongly about supporting its efforts. “The expansion of cardiac services at the hospital will be a great asset to our community.”

Players from 15 sponsor companies participated in The Drive Benefit Golf Tournament at Stone Creek Golf Club from September 1 through October 16. The format changed this year from a one-day tournament to a six-week event to follow safe COVID-19 guidelines for physical distancing.

This year’s Double Eagle Sponsor was Soderstrom Architects, a firm with a broad philanthropic mission: “Soderstrom believes in changing lives beyond architecture, through charitable giving. We give because we are committed to improving our community and making sure no one is left behind.”

Legacy Mount Hood Medical Center is in the midst of a three-year campaign to expand cardiac services, including two new cardiac catheterization suites for emergency care.

Funds from the tournament will support a separate $600,000 campaign for community education services, nutrition counseling, exercise equipment, and patient assistance.
