George, Coby Morris Make ‘Major Donation’ to SRMC Foundation

SALEM, Ohio — Business and community leaders George Morris III and his wife, Coby, have made a “major donation” to the Salem Regional Medical Center Foundation’s capital campaign,  “Community Champions – Expanding Cancer Care Together.”

The Morris’ gift will be used to support Salem Regional Medical Center’s efforts to expand local access to state-of-the-art cancer care through its oncology services expansion, the foundation announced today. Scheduled to open this fall, SRMC’s new cancer treatment center will offer a healing and welcoming environment, while providing advanced services to support cancer patients and their families.

“Cancer is an ever growing problem that affects every family,” George Morris said. “This expansion of oncology services at Salem Regional Medical Center will have an impact that will last for many generations.”

Morris, the president of Morris Financial Group in Salem, has been a member of the SRMC Foundation Board since its launch in 2010, and serves as the Foundation’s Donor Relations Committee co-chair. He and his wife are among the first major contributors to the campaign, said Lisa Long, SRMC director of development.

“We realize the importance of Salem Regional Medical Center and what it means to the people of our region,” Morris said. “The hospital is continually broadening medical care and bringing new services to our local communities, and Coby and I wanted to be at the forefront of SRMC’s growth.”

The Foundation’s “Community Champions” campaign is open to all members of the public, companies and organizations who wish to make a contribution. A variety of donation levels are available, including a number of naming opportunities within SRMC’s new oncology unit.
