Club/District Centennial Gift Gets a Re-Wrap

President Tom Bryan and District Governor Mike Darragh rededicated the Ascension Health Services — formerly St. Vincent’s Hospital — mobile health unit that marked Rotary’s 100 years of service in Florida. As members and guests of our Rotary Club applauded, Mike and Tom cut the ceremonial ribbon for the re-designed vehicle.

On hand for the ceremony were Claudia Portell and Max Snyder from Ascension. At our meeting prior to the re-dedication, Portell told members and guests that in the 2018-19 fiscal year, the mobile unit had delivered services to 1,970 patients across five northeast Florida counties (Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns).

Last year, as St. Vincent joined Ascension Health Care — the largest nonprofit health system in the U.S. and the world’s largest Catholic health system — their re-branding team requested updating the logo on the mobile health unit that Rotary presented to the hospital in 2012. The mobile clinic started as the 100th-year project of our Club, intended to serve Jacksonville and the surrounding area. Other Rotary clubs and District 6970 were invited to share in this project; the project also received matching funds from the Rotary Foundation.  For the past six months, Sergeant-at-Arms Scott L. Eder has been working with the Ascension-St. Vincent team to develop the graphics that update the clinic’s appearance. In mid-March 2019, the artwork was unanimously approved by Club leadership.
