Recently, Baptist Union City medical staff president Dr. Kofi Nuako and Skipper Bondurant, the hospital’s administrator and CEO, presented a $500 donation to Lorraine Gossett, chairwoman for the Obion County Hometown Walk of Hope. The donation was made in honor of the Baptist Union City medical staff, in recognition of National Doctors’ Day.
“The physicians are on the front lines in fighting cancer in this community, and we appreciate this donation from the hospital and medical staff,” said Gossett.
The Hometown Walk of Hope raises money to help cancer patients in the Union City, Tenn., area.
“On behalf of the medical staff, I thank Baptist Union City for supporting such a worthwhile organization that supports our patients,” said Nuako.
In the past 14 years, the organization has raised more than $1.3 million to help patients pay their rent, utility bills, insurance premiums, copays, prescriptions, gas, medical supplies and other immediate needs.
“Baptist’s reputation has been built on the excellence and innovation of our physicians and physician leaders, and we wanted to honor their service with this gift that will help our community’s families,” said Bondurant.
