American Cancer Society’s East Central Coastal Unit Awards the “Business of the Year”
On Monday, August 10, the American Cancer Society’s East Central Coastal Unit awarded the “Business of the Year” to Florida Hospital DeLand, Florida Hospital Fish Memorial, and Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center. These Florida Hospitals made significant contributions to the American Cancer Society throughout the year, in addition to a $60,000 donation.
“Corporate involvement is essential to our fight against cancer,” said Dr. Bev Grissom, American Cancer Society’s East Central Coastal Unit Operating Board Chair. “While all of our corporate partners mean a great deal to us, there is one business this year that stood out from all the rest. Florida Hospital DeLand, Florida Hospital Fish Memorial, and Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center are educational partners, and through their sponsorship and the generous individual donations of their employees, they are personally responsible for raising well over $60,000 this year for the fight against cancer.”
Grissom went on to say that Florida Hospital’s involvement with the American Cancer Society proves that their own mission statement of The Skill to Heal, The Spirit to Care is more than just words, but rather a belief that they practice whole heartedly.
The East Central Coastal Unit of the American Cancer Society covers all of Volusia County, except New Smyrna Beach. The award is selected by a committee who reviews the all of the businesses in Volusia County (excluding New Smyrna Beach) who supported the American Cancer Society. The businesses are evaluated based on their mission of promoting health, coupled with their strong stance in cancer prevention and treatment.
