Porter Health Care System was named "Company of the Year" by United Way of
Porter County at the 2013 United Way Volunteer of the Year Awards State
Banquet held March 7, at the Fountains Banquet and Conference Center,
“With health as one of United Way’s primary impact areas, it was an honor to
nominate Porter Health Care System, which has been recognized for the
award-winning medical care it provides to Northwest Indiana,” said Sharon A.
Kish, President of United Way of Porter County.
United Way annually invests in three core initiatives which serve as the
building blocks for a good quality of life: Health, Education and Financial
Led by CEO Jonathan Nalli, and CFO Cheryl Harmon, who serves as United Way’s
current Board Chair, Porter Health Care System is committed to United Way
efforts. Nalli and his wife, Cathleen, chaired United Way’s 2011/12 annual
Campaign, which raised $1.8 million in Porter County.
This past year, Porter also hosted United Way’s 1st annual CEO Leadership
Breakfast in the new Porter Regional Hospital before it opened. With
standing room only, the event was a great start to the campaign. In
addition, Porter served as the Premier Sponsor for United Way’s annual Golf
Classic in its 1st year at Sand Creek Country Club, and will serve again
this year in 2013.
“Porter Health Care System is a great advocate for volunteerism,” added
Kish. In 2012, the company served as the Corporate Steward Sponsor for the
United Way Regional Volunteer Center. Among the sponsored activities is the
Regional Day of Caring, which attracts more than 2,000 volunteers each year.
