Mary Greeley Medical Center Receives Major Gift Commitment from Sauer-Danfoss

AMES, IA – Sauer-Danfoss has pledged $250,000 to the Mary Greeley Medical Center Extraordinary Visions campaign. The gift was announced at an employee event on January 3 by Keith Folkmann, vice president, Propel North America.

“On behalf of Sauer-Danfoss and our employees we’re very pleased to support the expansion and renovation plans at Mary Greeley Medical Center,” says Folkmann. “We believe their vision will have a tremendous impact in continuing to provide high quality health care in central Iowa and consider this an investment in our community. We’re excited that we’re in a position to help make this happen.”

The Mary Greeley Medical Center Foundation launched the Extraordinary Visions campaign in late September. The $6 million campaign will support the medical center’s $129 million building project, the largest in the hospital’s history. To date, $3.7 million has been raised, including the gift from Sauer-Danfoss.

The Extraordinary Visions project includes a new six-story tower with larger patient rooms that will provide better healing environments and accommodate new technologies. Other features of the project include an expanded emergency department, a new main entrance with an enclosed skywalk, and a new power plant.  

“We are extremely grateful to Sauer-Danfoss and its employees for their generosity,” says Brian Dieter, president and CEO of Mary Greeley Medical Center. “This support will provide significant benefits to our patient care, and is a great example of the company’s commitment to the overall health of our communities.”

Sauer-Danfoss has been a long-time supporter of Mary Greeley Medical Center. Previous gifts have helped to establish the Cancer Resource Center, support the Israel Family Hospice House and fund many other programs.
