Do you know a Beebe Team Member? Chances are you do. Beebe Healthcare is now the No. 1 employer in Sussex County with over 2,200 employees serving in locations throughout our region. As the community has grown, Beebe Healthcare has also grown to meet the community's needs. Over the past 100 years, Beebe has added extra health campuses, offices, walk-in centers, a cancer center, etc.

A few years ago, Beebe Healthcare changed its branding with the new colors of gold and blue. The familiar hands that you see in the "B" represent the "giving hands" of Beebe Team Members and the hands of patients who receive excellent care and compassion on a daily basis.

This spring began another change for Beebe Healthcare. The Beebe Medical Foundation launched a new employee giving campaign-The Giving Hands Society. The name and look of this society was prompted by the giving hands in Beebe Healthcare's logo, and Beebe Team Members came together and created the specifics of the new giving society. This society is an opportunity for all Beebe Team Members to give back to the community by participating in giving to the Annual Fund of the Beebe Medical Foundation. To become a member of the Giving Hands Society, a Beebe Team Member can make a donation of any amount. Beebe Team Members who donate a minimum of $100 a year or more receive a commemorative 100th pin and magnet in honor of Beebe Healthcare's centennial year. One hundred percent of all proceeds will be given to Beebe Healthcare's programs and services of greatest need, unless otherwise designated.

In nearly a month, since the society was established, Beebe Team Member giving has increased more than 300 percent. Team members are eager to support their local not-for-profit healthcare system and excited to know the funds stay locally and aid in Beebe's mission to make Sussex County one of the healthiest in the nation. Beebe is as strong as our team members, and not only do they give their time and dedication, but they are contributing in wonderful ways. Their support of Beebe is inspiring. Like the 1916 magnets, you will notice many 100 Giving Hands Society magnets on our team members' cars. In addition, while walking the hallways or sitting in the waiting room of Beebe Healthcare's many locations, you will notice 100 Giving Hands Society pins on team members' badges and clothing.

As a community-owned, not-for-profit healthcare system, Beebe continues to depend on the generous support of individuals, corporations, businesses, and private foundations. All gifts, large or small, to Beebe Healthcare are tax deductible and are channeled through Beebe Medical Foundation. Please consider making a gift today and share amazing stories with the community.
