The Mena Regional Support Foundation hosted their annual Employee Appreciation Cookout recently in the Mena Regional Health System parking lot. Although the cookout began as a way for the Foundation to honor employees, in the years since its inception, they have opened the event to the public and it now serves as a fundraiser for the many charitable causes the Foundation supports at the hospital.
Donations to the Foundation help them benefit the hospital and its patients with capital improvements and a secure workforce by offering assistance with equipment and facility improvements. The Foundation also funds scholarships to local students seeking a healthcare career and who will return to the immediate area to practice.
