Another business has offered its support for Operation Vital Signs, Wayne Memorial Hospital’s capital campaign. PPL Electric Utilities recently donated $6,000 to the campaign as “an absolute necessity for the continued health and welfare of the area,” according to PPL’s Paul Canaveri. The company’s regional community relations director is shown in Honesdale presenting a symbolic check to David Hoff, Wayne Memorial Health System’s chief executive officer (left). “Operation Vital Signs is an investment in the future of healthcare in our area and PPL’s commitment to the campaign helps insure that investment. We are grateful for the company’s support. ” said Hoff. PPL, headquartered in Allentown, has a long history of funding projects in the communities it serves. Providing financial support to numerous non-profit agencies and organizations is not the only way PPL makes its presence felt. Its employees donate close to 200,000 hours a year to community service. PPL also operates recreational facilities and education outreach programs. Operation Vital Signs, part of a $22 million capital expansion project at Wayne Memorial, began with completion of the Hospital’s new emergency department last fall and continues this year with expansion in the radiology department.(Contributed photo)
