Generosity that transforms countless lives
Patients in north Scottsdale can thank their neighbors Chuck and Alice Palmer for exciting new features at HonorHealth Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center that will continue to create waves of healing in the community. With a 21-year legacy of philanthropy, the Palmers continue to transform healthcare for their community.
“My donations come from being a grateful patient who was very impressed with the care and attention the staff gave to me,” commented Chuck Palmer. “Having been a patient and observer of others doing rehabilitation – Alice and I wanted to fund additional equipment to help them on their healing journey.”
Their gift helped to purchase new outpatient therapy equipment for patients recovering from stroke, surgery or injury – or anyone with balance issues. The new Gait and Safety Lift and Overhead Track System reduces the risk of falling for patients relearning how to walk following a stroke or serious injury. The Medi-Touch BalanceTutor helps patients with gait or balance rehabilitation, including those dealing with neurologic, orthopedic or vestibular conditions, as well as patients challenged by prosthetics, sports injuries or the risk of falling. Both innovative technology systems enable HonorHealth’s physical and occupational therapists to provide personalized, advanced services to strengthen balance and gait – and a quicker pathway to healing.
“The generosity and loyalty of Chuck and Alice Palmer speaks volumes about their commitment to the health of our community,” noted Jan Miller, vice president of major gifts. “We are so grateful for their continued support as are the patients whose lives have been changed by their investment in HonorHealth.”
