Tara & Co. Donates to ‘Miracles’ Campaign

Tara & Co.  in Searcy recently presented the White County Medical Foundation a check for $3,265.28 to go toward the “Miracles Happen Every Day” campaign. All funds from the campaign are benefitting the New Life Center at White County Medical Center.

Every year Tara & Co. hosts a holiday jewelry event where they donate 15 percent of all purchases made by WCMC associates, physicians, auxiliary, board members and Foundation volunteers to the White County Medical Foundation.

“There are a number of good reasons why Searcy is a great place to live and at the top of that list has always been the great medical care that we have available here,” said Van Simpson, Tara & Co. owner. “At Tara & Co., we support the White County Medical Foundation because we believe it provides a service that is essential for the city’s growth and survival. We’re happy that we can help support the ‘Miracles Happen Every Day’ campaign.”

Funds given to the Foundation have helped purchase the following:  an advanced fetal monitoring system; state-of-the-art nursery equipment; a new triage area with four spaces for patients; an upgraded infant security system; and renovate six patient rooms into labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum (LDRP) suites.

Renovations to patient suites include more amenities to help patients and their families feel right at home. Updates include:  big-screen televisions, more seating for families, larger sofas and showers in all suites, custom built-in surface area with storage, new flooring and new rocking chairs.

“New life is cause for celebration. We are grateful for the support from our White County Medical Center family, as well as individuals, families and businesses from our community that have already given or pledged gifts to the Foundation for our ‘Miracles Happen Every Day’ Campaign benefitting the New Life Center,” said Cassandra Feltrop, Executive Director of the White County Medical Foundation. “We are truly blessed to have this support to continue bringing quality patient care and advancements in healthcare to our patients. We are excited about these wonderful enhancements that benefit mothers and babies, as well as their families.”
