It is part of the overall $21,000,000 Capital Campaign goal that is expected to be reached prior to the new Orange Regional Medical Center opening in 2011.
The Employee Campaign consisted of a "Dream Team," made up of volunteers from the three Orange Regional campuses. The "Dream Team" organized a kick-off in September 2008, followed by outreach activities lead by employee volunteer ambassadors. A "Power of One" Club was formed for everyone wishing to contribute one hour of pay per pay period for three years. The significance of the "Power of One" Club is: One person. One hour. To build one hospital.
