Celebrating Community Spirit

In celebration of the recent opening of the Memorial Urbana Medical Center, Memorial recently held a “Community Wins” Challenge for local Champaign County non-profit and service organizations. 

Pictured at the check presentations were front row, left to right: Scott DeLong, Champaign Residential Services, Inc.; Marilyn Cohn, Caring Kitchen, Inc.; Robin Coffey, Memorial Health Communications & Public Relations; Staci Weller, GrandWorks Foundation; and Paul Waldsmith, Champaign Family YMCA.
