“Valley has made our lives better,” says Terry Wissinger. “We’re part of the Valley family.” After retirement in 2016, he and his wife Karen became Valley patients, pleased with the atmosphere, responsive staff and medical technology. Soon the Wissingers were among the first to volunteer for Valley’s new therapy dog program with Clover and Ellie, offering patients and staff stress-relief unique to canine caregiving.
Believers in paying it forward, they will support Valley into the future with a legacy gift. “It’s difficult for a community hospital to find funding for special things beyond day-to-day operations. With our gift, we’re hoping to provide some extra comforts,” says Karen.
