Construction to Start Summer 2014 for New Wing

The new wing, with private small apartments and a state of the art therapy gym will be accessible from Miami Street (close to the old Friends Boarding Home which is now a museum).  We also will be able to convert some of our existing semi-private rooms to private. These are in demand.  Our current therapy gym is very small and busy with not only our residents/short-stay patients but also with those coming for outpatient therapy.

Pumpkin Bowl Gaining Reputation for “Great fun!” While Raising Funds

Nineteen teams of five were registered for QHCC’s November 12th Pumpkin Bowl and helped raise $6,313 for resident activities. The event again took place at J.D. Legends Strike Zone.  Residents who attended were thrilled to be part of a large family-like spirited event and talked about it the rest of the week. This was the second year for the event that attracts all ages and the business community.  Team participation increased 40% and donations grew by more than $1,150.  The event was designed to:  be financially low risk; appeal to an intergenerational audience; not need a lot of staffing; and permit able and interested residents to participate.
