We have provided more than 1,200 construction jobs and drawn on local resources while building our new Eden hospital. Here’s a quick look at the positive impact we’ve made on our community:

  • Approximately 700,000 work hours
  • Averaged 150 workers on site
  • Employed approximately 1,500 workers (e.g., carpenters, labors, plumbers, electricians, etc.)
  • Used 26 percent local materials (within a 500 mile radius)
  • Rented a meeting room from a local business for two years
  • Purchased meals from 20 local restaurants
  • Held team meetings at nine local restaurants
  • Purchased office supplies from local businesses
  • Made over 400 trips to a local coffee house
  • Out-of-town teams have stayed in local hotels over 400 times

In addition to all of these items, we have been known to frequent a nearby watering hole, after hours.
