Drs. Eleazar & Jan Briones Donate to Kids Zone

Drs. Eleazar and Jan Briones presented a check to Brian Lovdahl, CEO of CCM Health, and Leah Lehtola, Wellness Center and Community Health Director, on Monday, January 27, 2020. The check represented a $25,000 matching pledge that the Briones’ committed as part of a matching pledge program with CCM Health employees. Starting back on December 18, 2019, for every dollar, up to $25,000, that CCM Health employees pledged, Drs. Briones would match it.

 “Drs. Briones’ pledge match campaign for CCM Health employees was a great success and raised over $55,000 in total combined pledges. That was more than one third of our entire goal of $150,000 raised internally. This level of commitment by both Drs. Briones and CCM Health staff is deeply appreciated.” said CCM Health’s CEO, Brian Lovdahl.

“Jan and I have been long time supporters of CCM Health and the Montevideo area. CCM Wellness Center’s Kids Zone playground is another community asset we are glad we can stand behind and support.” Said Eleazar Briones, MD.

The Kids Zone playground is part of the CCM Wellness Center slated to open in April 2020. Kids Zone will be a 2,000 square foot indoor playground that will provide top of the line play equipment that can be enjoyed by toddlers and children up to 12 years of age.

The public is encouraged to learn more about the Kids Zone capital campaign and how they can also donate to the playground by visiting CCM Health’s website at ccmhealthmn.server317.com or dropping by the main lobby at CCM Health in Montevideo, Minnesota.
