Make A Wish
A community’s quality of life is directly related to the health of its members, it is for that reason that Southwest Medical Associates works not just to improve the health care system in Nevada but to give back to the community whenever possible.
“We believe at Southwest Medical Associates that it is important to have a very active and engaged workforce, it is critical to our mission to give back to the community so we created what we call Employee Community Councils and what we do is we empower all of our employees to make decisions about the non-profit organizations and community programs that they are passionate about and want to participate in. Last year we had over 15,000 volunteer hours and now we are happy to announce today our new partnership with Make A Wish of Southern Nevada” says Toni Corbin Senior VP of Operations Southwest Medical Associates.
“We grant the wish for children who are battling life threatening illnesses, we know the wish experience is life changing for our kids, gives them hope during a time they need it most. Kids who qualify for a wish must be age three and before their eighteen birthday and have a life threatening medical condition. So one of the misconceptions about Make A Wish is that all of our kids are terminal and fortunately they are not all terminal but we heavily rely on the medical community and medical professionals, Doctors, Nurses, Child Life Specialists to refer children to Make A Wish” says Caroline Ciocca President/CEO of Make A Wish Southern Nevada.
“For the past 45 years Southwest Medical has given back to the community through volunteerism. We encourage you to do the same by partnering with Make A Wish through volunteerism, fund raising and corporate giving” Toni Corbin Senior VP of Operations Southwest Medical Associates.
“There are so many ways people can get involved with Make A Wish, volunteer and change a child’s life, change your life. Go to our website at SNV.WISH.ORG and learn how you can make a difference in a child’s life” Caroline Ciocca President/CEO of Make A Wish Southern Nevada.
