Oceanside, Calif. (Sept. 5, 2012)—Tri-City Hospital Foundation recently honored North County Radiology with its prestigious, first annual Clarion Award to recognize a donor who has risen up consistently to answer the call of community giving while also inspiring others to support healthcare excellence in its community. The Oceanside-based radiology group was honored at the foundation’s July “Fashion that Heals” event and was presented with the award by the foundation’s board of directors in August.
“The philanthropy we practice seeks to be transformative—to change our community and the lives of your neighbors, friends and families for the better, and for the future,” said Tobi Ferguson, president of Tri-City Hospital Foundation. “We chose to honor North County Radiology with our first Clarion Award for their many years of dedicated, uncompromising support for the mission of the foundation.”
For nearly 50 years, North County Radiology has provided state-of-the-art imaging and interventional radiology services to patients throughout North County San Diego. For the last 17 years it has supported Tri-City Hospital Foundation by sponsoring its annual events and most recently joining its Corporate Council which raises funds to support an array of health services and technologies for Tri-City Medical Center. In addition, many of North County Radiology’s physicians regularly attend the foundation’s fundraising events and participate in auctions, raffles and paddle raisers.
“We value highly the relationship with Tri-City Medical Center and Tri-City Hospital Foundation,” said North County Radiology CEO Scott Raymond. “We are proud to be aligned with the hospital in providing top-notch radiology services to area physicians and patients in North County San Diego and are honored to be the first recipient of its new Clarion Award.”
