Staff Show Their Spirit and Raise Funds for All Children’s Hospital
June 19, 2017, Tampa, Fla. – Last week, Ultimate Medical Academy, a nonprofit healthcare educational institution with a national presence, hosted its first Scrub Spirit Day, and it was all to benefit Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital while paying homage to our heritage as a healthcare training school.
Staff at the school’s three locations in Tampa Bay and one location in New York City raised more than $1,800 to donate to the hospital. Throughout the years, Ultimate Medical Academy has raised more than $65,000 for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, including sponsoring a Sensory Integration Therapy Lab at the hospital’s Rehabilitation Center.
“Part of Ultimate Medical Academy’s mission is to improve healthcare through education,” said Dan Soschin, the leader overseeing philanthropic initiatives at Ultimate Medical Academy. “Through the generosity of staff, we are able to give back to some of Tampa Bay’s smallest patients and their families. We know that a little goes a long way in the healing process for better patient outcomes.”
Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital provides expert pediatric care for infants, children and teens with some of the most challenging medical problems in the world. Since 2012, Ultimate Medical Academy has participated in the Cares for Kids annual fundraising campaigns, which directly funds treatment, research, education and advocacy initiatives throughout Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and its eight outpatient centers in Florida.
Ultimate Medical Academy’s involvement with Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is one of the many service projects and outreach initiatives the institution participates in each year.
