The late musical artist, Prince, once said: “Compassion is an action word with no boundaries.” And Tauana McDonald exemplifies this. As a hospital executive, she has fully supported Mount Carmel Grove City Hospital’s (MCGC) initiatives to honor their donors and support donor families.
During this past year’s Donate Life Month, MCGC held a special flag-raising to honor their donors. In addition, one donor family was invited to a special luncheon afterward, where their donor hero’s favorite meal was served. During the event, MCGC’s executive team intentionally wore green and blue – the Donate Life colors.
They also hosted a week-long donation information table to help bring awareness and encourage people to say “yes” to donation. Fostering an environment of care and compassion, where activities such as these are encouraged, speaks to Tauana’s character.
She leads with compassion and kindness and empowers her colleagues to do the same. She also has supported the creation of a Wall of Heroes at the hospital, which will honor those donor heroes who have given the gift of life and healing through organ, eye and tissue donation.
