South Davis Community Hospital to be honored at Davis County Gala Event.
— Each year, the Davis County Commissioners carefully select a worthy recipient for the Heart of Davis Award. The Heart of Davis Award is given annually to an individual or group that has made a significant impact to the betterment of Davis County. The Commissioners are pleased to announce that this year’s award recipient will be South Davis Community Hospital (SDCH).
For the individuals and their families who arrive at SDCH after a life-changing accident, an unexpected illness, or when faced with a serious medical condition, this specialty hospital plays a crucial role in their critical care and recovery process.
The dedicated SDCH team serves patients and their families who require ongoing and complex care and rehabilitation due to life altering medical conditions, illness and accidents. SDCH is the only specialty care hospital of its kind in Utah, and an independent nonprofit organization.

CJ Benson, the Community Relations Director at SDCH said the following:
"We are honored to have this opportunity. Currently, South Davis Community hospital is crossing an exciting threshold with a capital fundraising endeavor called Love, Wish, Build. Love, Wish, Build will seek to raise the funds required to begin construction of a new hospital to serve Utah and the intermountain area in place of the existing 53 year old facility. The project will be a labor of love. The need is great, the timing is right, and the impact of the legacy will shape lives with a focus on quality for generations to come.
The individuals and corporations who contribute to the Love, Wish, Build campaign will be recognized by name in the new facility to lend encouragement, support, and inspiration to the individuals and families we serve.
I am happy to say that we are having great success with our fundraising campaign so far and just last week received our first major donor pledge. We think the awareness generated by this award will bring an added momentum to our cause."
The Heart of Davis award will be presented at the annual Davis County Gala on Thursday, October 9th. For more information about the Gala Event please visit http://www.daviscountygala.com.
