Mr. Campbell made a $1 million gift to the Central Washington Hospital Foundation from his personal account and from the “Carl and Betty Campbell Foundation of Caring Fund,” the foundation he established with his late wife Betty. Mr. Campbell is pictured (center) with former Central Washington Hospital President & CEO Jack Evans and Foundation Executive Director Abel Noah.
The history of Central Washington Hospital and the Campbell family are deeply connected. Mr. Campbell is a pioneer in the nursing home industry and received his first residents from the hospital when he and his wife founded their first facility in 1954. Since that time Mr. Campbell’s company, Triple C, has grown to more than 180 facilities in 21 states.
Mr. Campbell served as a member of the Deaconess Hospital’s Board for 19 years. He was on the Board when it merged with St. Anthony’s Hospital to become Central Washington Hospital.
“This hospital means a lot to us,” Campbell said. “It needs to continue to grow and serve the needs of the community.” The $1 million gift was originally designated to be anonymous, but Mr. Campbell agreed to a public announcement of his gift to encourage others to give. “The hospital will need continued donations for its operations,” Campbell said. “The Campbells believe in the hospital and we want other folks to continue to donate.”
Carl and his wife Betty were chosen to receive the 2013 “Spirit of A.Z. Wells” Award, and will be honored at the annual Foundation Gala on Friday, November 8, 2013.
