Starting Monday, June 4, the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation will begin selling tickets for a chance to win a 2018 Toyota RAV4 Limited. Tickets are $75 each, and only 1,400 tickets will be sold. The winning ticket will be drawn Thursday, August 30, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at Toyota of Hattiesburg. Proceeds from this year’s Win This Car will benefit the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation’s current project Let’s Connect.
Employees, patients, their families and friends all have a need to stay in touch, both within the hospital walls and from far away. The Let’s Connect campaign includes an initiative to replace the guest network with new and improved Wi-Fi, hotspots and charging stations throughout all Forrest Health locations. This will allow our patients and their families to contact each other easily, and check their e-mails or perform other office work. An internet café will be added to Forrester’s Cafeteria, allowing internet access to those in need.
As another part of the Let’s Connect campaign, new outdoor areas and walking spaces will be created to allow patients, their families and Forrest General employees a chance to relax, refresh and enjoy each other’s company close to the hospital’s campus. “We want to make their time in the hospital as easy as possible for our patients and the family members and friends who love them. In our society, there is nothing more frustrating than not being able to fully use our devices, so we hope to alleviate that for everyone in our facilities. We’re also happy to provide our donors with yet another opportunity to win a beautiful new car,” said Martha Dearman, executive director of the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation.
