Letter from Foundation Leadership
I hope your New Year is off to a healthy and
productive start. It is hard for me to believe
that you are reading our Winter 2013,
volume 3, issue 1 of the North Colorado
Medical Center Foundation’s magazine True
North! Judging from positive feedback, our
donors enjoy reading this magazine. Please
know that it is our pleasure to keep you
updated on the activities of the Foundation
and the North Colorado Medical Center.
I want to thank the 2012 Foundation board
chair Sally Warde for her excellent guidance
and leadership over the past year. Sally is a
successful business person and has served
on numerous local foundation boards
over the years. Her experience in both the
business and non-profit world was a major
asset to the Foundation board, and her
leadership skills were greatly appreciated.
Fortunately, Sally will remain active on the
board, serving as immediate past chairman
on the executive committee.

John Dollarhide
Foundation Board Chair
I also would like to welcome John Dollarhide as the
2013 Foundation board chair. John brings a very
unique perspective to the board with his overall
expertise and long career as a successful owner and
operator of a CPA firm in Greeley. We look forward
to continued excellence from our Foundation board
leadership under John’s tutelage.
Speaking of excellence, your contributions to
the Foundation make a significant impact on the
overall operations of NCMC. With the uncertainty
of healthcare reform looming in 2014, we know our
current delivery system will change significantly.
Experts seem to agree on one issue: reimbursements
will decline, and hospitals nationwide will look to
philanthropy more than ever before to provide needed
In healthcare philanthropy, a contribution of $1
is equal to $22 in goods and services. That is a
considerable return on your philanthropic investment
in our local health care!

for Banner North Colorado Medical Paramedic Services.
In 2012, the Foundation made grants to
NCMC departments and internal programs
totaling approximately $662,000. These
grants purchased important equipment like
bladder scanners, brachytherapy upgrades
for the North Colorado Medical Center
Cancer Institute, and cryotherapy equipment
for EP ablations at the CardioVascular
Institute at North Colorado Medical
Center, allowing NCMC to become the first
hospital in Northern Colorado to use this
leading-edge technology. It also provided
scholarship assistance for nurses, clinical
staff and aspiring nurses and healthcare
workers; purchased essential medicine
for less fortunate patients; and provided
other capital and programmatic needs. All
these grants were made possible by your
generous contributions to the NCMC
In addition to internal grants made to
NCMC, the Foundation also administers the
NCMC, Inc. Charitable Fund. This fund is designed
specifically to fund worthy non-profit organizations
and initiatives in Weld County. The Charitable Fund is
managed by the NCMC, Inc. Board of Directors, led by
NCMC, Inc. Board Executive Ken Schultz.
In 2012, the NCMC, Inc. Charitable Fund made grants
totaling $502,000 to Weld County non-profits in
categories like education, health care, social services,
and community outreach, and supported 14 benefits,
galas and fundraising dinners.
Combined, that is an astounding $1,164,000
that the NCMC, Inc. Charitable Fund and the NCMC
Foundation contributed to non-profit organizations
and healthcare initiatives in 2012! In an era of
economic uncertainty, we are pleased to be a major
source of support to essential non-profit organizations
and services in our community.
We value your contributions; they DO make a
difference! Thank you for your continued generosity
to the North Colorado Medical Center Foundation.

Collaboration Leads to Life-Saving
Efforts with Heart Safe City Initiative
We are all familiar with the famous
African proverb “It takes a village to
raise a child.” It can also be said that
it takes a village to save a life. This
is exemplified by a unique life-saving
collaboration involving the City of Greeley,
the Greeley Fire Department, Banner
North Colorado Medical Paramedic
Services, the CardioVascular Institute of
North Colorado at North Colorado Medical
Center, and the North Colorado Medical
Center Foundation.
Saving lives is what the Heart Safe City program is all
about. Originally sponsored by the American Heart
Association, Heart Safe is a community-wide effort to
educate the citizens of Greeley and Weld County on the
dangers of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Identifying
symptoms of SCA, learning how to administer
cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and using
automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are all major
components of the Heart Safe City program.
“Our goal is to raise awareness of signs and symptoms
of heart attacks and cardiac arrest. Community
members are a vital part of the chain of survival.
Recognizing symptoms and acting on those symptoms
save lives,” said Dawn Olson, Director of Business
Development at NCMC’s CardioVasular Institute of
North Colorado/Neurosciences. “Oftentimes, family
members or co-workers are the first responders to a
person in distress, and by educating people on CPR
training and how to use an AED, survival rates will
SCA—a condition in which the heartbeat stops abruptly
and unexpectedly—is a leading cause of death in the
United States, claiming more than 325,000 lives
annually. Brain death begins to occur four to six
minutes after cardiac arrest. Chances of survival drop
by 7-10 percent with every minute that passes without
CPR and the use of an AED. Ninety-five percent of
deaths from sudden cardiac arrest occur
before a victim reaches the hospital.
They are often witnessed by a family
member, friend or co-worker.
If more people were educated in the
mechanics of CPR, and AEDs were more
widely available in our community, the
survival rates could be as high as fifty
The Heart Safe City initiative calls
for placement of AEDs in public gathering places
throughout the city, including the airport, shopping
centers, swimming pools, theaters, golf courses, police
cars, elementary through high schools, and other high
usage areas. Additionally, the community members
will have increased access to AED training and CPR
“People tend to be afraid of AEDs, thinking they will
give someone too much of a shock. These AEDs are
very user friendly and safe to use by a person on
the street. All they need to do is follow the recorded
instructions,” added Olson.
Along with NCMC’s Dawn Olson, Lieutenant Bill
Diershow, EMS Coordinator at the Greeley Fire
Department, has been a driving force behind the
development of the Heart Safe City program. “Seattle,
Washington has the premier Heart Safe City program
in the United States. Over the course of my career,
beginning in the 1990s, we gradually implemented
bits and pieces of the program in Greeley. We have
a low bystander intervention rate. Few people
know how to intervene and administer CPR,” said
Diershow. “Everybody relies on emergency responders
to administer CPR. We need to train community
members how to properly administer CPR and use
AEDs. This program is aimed at doing that. If more
community members are properly trained, lives will be

Collaboration Leads to Life-Saving Efforts with Heart Safe City
Initiative continued
The determination for the Heart Safe City designation
is based on how many points a municipality earns.
The city receives points for CPR training, the number
of AEDs placed and how easily accessible they are
in specific areas, including recreation centers and
schools, as well as with emergency first responders.
The availability of advanced life support personnel
to respond to sudden cardiac emergencies is also
factored into the designation.
Olson said the community has worked hard to earn
points toward the designation. The next step is to
purchase AEDs for the area schools. At $1,800 each,
the fund-raising goal is a large undertaking and is
being coordinated by the North Colorado Medical
Center Foundation.
“When I heard about this program, I knew immediately
it would resonate with our donors,” said Chris Kiser,
president of the North Colorado Medical Center
Foundation. “I took the idea of fund raising for
AEDs to the Foundation board of directors and they
enthusiastically embraced the idea. We sent out a
year-end mail piece and we had a very good response,
including numerous donors who sent us contributions
for $1,800, which purchases one AED.”
Dave Bressler, director for Banner North Colorado
Medical Paramedic Services, explains how a situation
might happen. If someone suffers sudden cardiac
arrest at the mall and calls the emergency dispatch
center, the dispatcher directs the person to the nearest
AED in the facility.
The AED “talks” the person through the process. At
the same time, the dispatcher coordinates ambulance
and fire department response. “What saves people
is having CPR performed by a true first responder—
that first person at the scene when someone goes
down,” Bressler said. “In addition to purchasing AEDs,
having the financial resources to educate community
members on CPR is vitally important.”
Bressler, a longtime advocate of CPR training and AED
accessibility, has worked diligently over the years, and
has placed over 220 AEDs in Weld County since the
late 1990s. “As part of this program, Banner North
Colorado Medical Paramedic Services will service and
maintain each AED, to ensure that batteries are fully
charged and that each unit is operating correctly.”
Help Greeley become “Heart Safe” by purchasing an AED today!
Recently the Greeley Police Department added AEDs
to their vehicles in an effort to further pursue the Heart
Safe designation, as they are often first responders to
people with a cardiac event.
Ward II Greeley Council Member Donna Sapienza has
been a vocal supporter of the Heart Safe City program.
“I want our city to be on the leading edge of life-saving
technology. Everyone can use an AED. They are
simple to use, the machines walk you through each
step, and even children can use them,” said Sapienza.
“Lt. Diershow has been instrumental in putting this
program together since day one. He identified Dawn
Olson at NCMC as an advocate, and it has been a very
fruitful relationship. The CardioVascular Institute at
NCMC is the best in Northern Colorado at saving lives,
and the ambulance service is also a major part of this
effort. John Gates, Ward III Greeley Council Member
and Director of School Safety and Security with School
District 6, has also been an advocate. This project is
simply one of the best things we can offer in our city.”
The Heart Safe City program is unique to Colorado,
with only one other city in the state—Telluride—having
the designation.

Collaboration Leads to Life-Saving Efforts with Heart Safe City
Initiative continued
Mitch Wagy, Ambulance Services senior manager for
Banner North Colorado Medical Paramedic Services,
refers to the teamwork needed to implement a
program like Heart Safe City. “Something of this
magnitude cannot be accomplished without great
collaboration between the agencies involved. Bill
Diershow had the vision to study the Seattle model
and begin the implementation in Greeley, Dave
Bressler had the vision to begin placing AEDs
around the county, and Dawn Olson had the vision
to bring the CardioVascular Institute to the table.
Their hard work has made this program possible.”
To date, the Heart Safe City program has raised
over $75,000. Key funding has come from
the City of Greeley, Kaiser Permanente and the
NCMC Foundation. In 2012, the Heart Safe City
program provided certified CPR training to 238 city
employees, placed 12 AEDs in Greeley Police patrol
cars, placed 6 AEDs in City of Greeley high traffic
buildings, and funded free non-certified CPR training
to area residents.
The next area of emphasis will be to place AEDs in
Greeley schools. At the present time, there are only
four AEDs combined in local schools.
“My passion is getting AEDs out in the community,
particularly in our schools. Most children are not
at risk, but there are occasions where children,
because of their age and due to undiagnosed
genetic disorders, may have a heart event,” said
Olson. “In working with schools in our community,
their challenge has been getting the funding to
purchase AEDs. The Heart Safe program is a good
fit, and is an area of need that our school district
has identified but did not have the necessary
resources. With the Foundation’s fund-raising
efforts, I am sure that people in our community will
continue to step up and help purchase AEDs for all
of our schools.”
Just as each member of a village shares in the
responsibility of raising a child, the residents of
Greeley are embracing the challenge of becoming
better trained on how to provide early intervention to
a person suffering from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
Facts on
Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is a common, lethal
public health problem that affects as many as
236,000-325,000 people in the United States each
year. If deaths due to out-of-hospital cardiac
arrest were separated from deaths due to other
cardiovascular causes, it would be the nation’s
third leading cause of death.
Brain death and permanent death start to occur
in just 4 to 6 minutes after cardiac arrest.
A victim’s chances of survival are reduced by
7-10% with every minute that passes without
CPR and defibrillation. Few attempts at
resuscitation succeed after 10 minutes.
Each year, emergency medical responders treat
nearly 300,000 people who suffer cardiac arrest
outside the hospital. More than 92% of cardiac
arrest victims do not survive to be discharged
from the hospital. When defibrillation is
provided within 5 to 7 minutes, the survival rate
is as high as 50%.
If bystander CPR were initiated more
consistently, if AEDs were more widely available,
and if every community could achieve a 20%
cardiac arrest survival rate, an estimated 40,000
more lives could be saved each year.

Jim and Kathy, the Charitable Gift Annuity
allows them to simultaneously make a gift
to a charity they love and secure their income needs.
A Charitable Gift Annuity could be the answer. A
person or couple makes a gift to charity; in return, an
income stream is provided for life to the donor(s). The
rate of return is determined by the age of the donor
and the current annuity rates. Most Charitable Gift
Annuities are funded with cash or stocks, and the
return is often much higher than CDs. The income
stream is fixed and guaranteed regardless of the
economy’s ups and downs. In addition to the income,
the donor receives a charitable deduction the year of
the gift.
Jim and Kathy P., ages 68 and 66, are living on a tight
budget. Their declined IRA values have given them
cause for concern. Jim, a retired teacher, also has a
pension. If Jim predeceases Kathy, his pension does
not continue paying out to her. Kathy would then
have to live on a greatly reduced income.

family has deep roots in Greeley thanks to greatgrandfather, William Garnsey, Jr., who purchased
Colorado’s second Ford dealership in 1922.
That purchase eventually became Garnsey &
Wheeler Ford, one of the oldest businesses in
Northern Colorado before it was sold in 2007.
After marrying his college sweetheart and living
in Boulder for a few years while attending law
school at the University of Colorado and working
as an attorney for the IRS, Tim and Jennifer
moved to Greeley so that Tim could join his
father-in-law, Herrick Garnsey, as owner and
manager of the family dealership.
Fast forward 17 years. Tim and
Jennifer still live in Greeley. They’ve

Bedingfield Law, based in Loveland. He and Jennifer
also own a TCBY frozen yogurt shop in Greeley, which
she manages.
Tim gives back to the community by volunteering at
several area non-profit organizations. He served on the
grant committee for the Littler Youth Fund for six years
and chaired the Parks and Rec Advisory Board. He also
co-chaired the Quality of Life Task Force that in 2004
The Brynteson family on son Bo’s high school graduation day
championed the initiative to build Greeley’s Ice Haus,
among other community projects. Today he serves
on the board for KUNC radio and is a six-year board
member for the NCMC Foundation.
“I’m honored to serve on the Foundation board
because philanthropy is so important to the health
care of any community,” said Tim. “The economics of
health care doesn’t work without private gifts.”
During his board tenure, Tim has devoted his time
and talents to many projects, such as the Monfort
Children’s Clinic committee and serving as Foundation
board chair in 2011.
“In 2013, we will focus on fund raising for the North
Colorado Medical Center Cancer Institute,” said Tim.
“We also face the ongoing challenge of figuring out
what healthcare funding will look like in the coming
decade. It’s going to change dramatically.”

Nursing Scholarships Offer Tuition
Are you interested in a career in nursing? Do you know
a non-traditional Weld County resident considering
going back to school, or a graduating senior from a Weld
County High School interested in making nursing their
career? Then you may be in luck! Through the generosity
of nursing and healthcare-designated scholarship funds
gifted to the North Colorado Medical Center Foundation,
scholarship assistance is once again being offered to
aspiring applicants.
Here is a brief overview of the various scholarships
offered by the NCMC Foundation:
Hansen Scholarships – Established by the late Mildred
S. Hansen, the former owner and publisher of the Greeley
Tribune, a considerable portion of her estate was left to
the North Colorado Medical Center Foundation as well as
numerous other charities. From this generous estate gift,
three scholarships were established.
• The Hansen Nursing Tuition Scholarship – Awarded
since 1996 to a Weld County High School senior
planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
Selection is based upon academic performance in
high school with consideration given to community
involvement and financial need. During the recipient’s
freshman and sophomore years, the scholarship
provides tuition (or the equivalent of in-state tuition if
the recipient attends an out-of-state school or private
college) and reimbursement for books. During the
recipient’s junior and senior years, the scholarship
provides tuition, reimbursement for books, and nursing
supplies, as well as a stipend for living expenses. A
recipient must maintain a minimum of a 3.0 grade point
average to maintain the scholarship.
• Hansen Nursing Scholarship – Awarded annually
since 1996 to one non-traditional student, aged
25 or older, who is returning to college to pursue a
bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing through
courses offered at the University of Northern Colorado.
Eligible applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree in a
subject other than nursing, and have been accepted
into the nursing program at UNC. Selection is based
largely upon academic performance in college and
special factors including community involvement and
financial need. This two year scholarship provides
tuition, reimbursement for books and nursing supplies,
and a stipend for living expenses. The recipient must
maintain a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average to
maintain the scholarship.
• Hansen Nursing Program Scholarship – Awarded
annually since 2000 to a non-traditional student over
the age of 25 who is pursuing a bachelor’s or master’s
degree in nursing through courses offered at the
University of Northern Colorado. Eligible applicants
have been accepted into the nursing program at UNC
and selection is based on academic performance
in college and special factors including community
involvement and financial need. The two year
scholarship provides tuition, reimbursement for books
and nursing supplies, and a living expense stipend. A
3.0 grade point average must be maintained.
NCMC Foundation Nurse Education Tuition Assistance
Scholarship – This scholarship is awarded annually to
one or two students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in
nursing. The recipient is provided up to $1,500 toward
tuition for no more than five semesters. The recipient in
turn must agree to seek employment at NCMC as a nurse
upon completion of the nursing degree. For each six
months the recipient is employed at NCMC, $1,500 of the
scholarship is forgiven. If the recipient chooses to work
elsewhere, the scholarship is considered a loan and must
be repaid in full.
Lily E. Widney Memorial Nursing Scholarship –
Awarded annually since 1991 to an employee of NCMC
who is currently enrolled in a nursing program with plans
to obtain an associate or bachelor’s degree in nursing.
NCMC Volunteer Scholarship – Started in 2001, it is

of the course and reimbursement for books and nursing
supplies. The scholarship is open to residents of Weld

year since 1986. The recipient is provided a scholarship

Scholarship – Established in 2011 by Mike and Marilynn

nurse at Weld County General Hospital (now NCMC), who
had a long and impressive career in nursing that included
stints as a surgical nurse, private nurse, department
supervisor and county coroner’s assistant. She was
chosen to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony for
the new hospital in 1951. That portion of the hospital now
comprises the central portion of NCMC.

NCMC Among Top 5 Percent of Hospitals in Nation in 2013
North Colorado Medical Center has received the
Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence,
2013 from Healthgrades™, a leading provider of
comprehensive information about physicians and
hospitals. The distinction ranks NCMC among the top
5 percent of more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide
for clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades
and is the fifth consecutive year NCMC has been
named. McKee Medical Center, a Banner Health facility
(Loveland), also received this award.
“Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence
recipients stand out for their overall clinical
performance across a broad spectrum of care,”
said Evan Marks, Healthgrades EVP Informatics and
Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance for
nearly every hospital in the nation; no hospital can optin or opt-out of being evaluated, and no hospital pays
to be evaluated.
From 2009 through 2011, 262 hospitals, including
NCMC, showed superior performance in caring for
patients in the Medicare population, as measured by
objective clinical outcomes. Nationally, if
all hospitals performed at this level during
this period, a total of 164,414 lives could
have potentially been saved.
“We are pleased to be nationally
recognized for the outcomes achieved for
our patients through the dedication of our
employees, physicians and volunteers,”
said NCMC CEO Rick Sutton. “Our focus
and investments in clinical quality and
our organization’s priorities are continuing to make a
difference in people’s lives through excellent patient
In addition to the Distinguished Hospital for Clinical
Excellence designation, North Colorado Medical
Center received 9 five-star ratings and 9 Quality
awards for service line performance in October,
2012 by Healthgrades. These notable recognitions
demonstrate comprehensive high-quality care across
multiple specialties and services including cardiology
and cardiovascular surgery; critical care; emergency
medicine; gastroenterology; neuroscience; and
