Douglas County Health Center Foundation
Celebrating Twenty Years June 2014 : A Dream to Reality
In 2008 the foundation celebrated the completion of its largest project to date: The dream of designing, planning, and constructing a building extension to Douglas County Health Center.
The Hollis and Helen Baright Solarium and Fitness Center provides many DCHC residents more space, more light, and a more home-like environment. Additional square footage was added to the two floors of the Cavanaugh Care Center and those residents now have a more delineated space between dining areas and public areas. The additions to these neighborhoods provide a specifically designated dining area and separate comfortable areas for socializing where residents can watch television, spend time with family members, or simply observe the gardens through South-facing windows.
The fitness center is used by residents to increase their physical health and strength and provides a more holistic approach to caring for residents by focusing on improving not only physical health but also mental health through exercise and fitness.
Partnering with generous donors and community-minded local foundations our foundation raised over $1.1 million dollars and brought this important and needed project from dream to reality.
