EVERETT, WA. - The Everett Clinic has been named as one of the 2011 Top 75 Corporate Philanthropists in the Puget Sound region by the Puget Sound Business Journal. The Clinic was ranked #4 in the medium sized business category and was the only healthcare organization to make the list overall.

“This honor is a reflection of the dedicated contributions by The Everett Clinic Foundation, our staff and physicians, and the organization as a whole,” said the Clinic’s Chief Executive Officer, Rick Cooper. “Collectively our investment in the communities in which we work and live is driving positive change that reflects the value we place in giving back.”

The Clinic was recognized for sharing its success with the community through grants, fundraisers, sponsorships, donations, board memberships and volunteerism.

In 2010, The Everett Clinic Foundation gave away $359,800 in philanthropy dollars. Included in that total are the donations of staff and physicians who contributed $197,000 to the Foundation. The Foundation in turn helped many in need through charitable grants, Operation Outreach, the Haiti Fund, Lend a Hand, and the McDonald Fund.

The Everett Clinic as an organization (separate from the Foundation) also donated significant philanthropy dollars. The Clinic gave $493,835 toward worthy causes which included $25,000 toward the Haiti Match Fund and $250,000 to the Providence Foundation in support of the new Cymbaluk Medical Tower.

The total of Everett Clinic philanthropy giving for 2010 was $853,635, which demonstrates the significant generosity of The Everett Clinic team. This latest recognition comes on the heels of being named to the 2011 FORTUNE “100 Best Companies to Work For®” list and as a 2011 “Best Place to Work in Healthcare” by Becker's Hospital Review.
