Middletown Valley Bank Begins Veterans Patient Room Campaign for Doey’s House

Middletown Valley Bank (MVB) recently donated $30,000 to Hospice of Washington County. The funds will be used to build Doey’s House, the first hospice house in Washington County, and it will seed a naming opportunity for a patient room in honor of Veterans of the United States. The donation was announced at the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new hospice house.

The total campaign goal for the patient room in honor of Veterans is $100,000. Individuals and organizations can send donations specifically for this room at Doey’s House, and those who give $1,000 or more will have their name listed under Middletown Valley Bank.

Middletown Valley Bank (MVB) is a full-service community bank headquartered in Middletown, Maryland, and has 6 office locations in Frederick and Washington Counties of Maryland. MVB’s primary mission is to deliver absolutely consistent and extraordinary service through a team of dedicated, enthusiastic banking professionals.

Offering high quality end-of-life care, Hospice of Washington County, Inc. (HWC) assists patients wherever they live. However, sometimes the option of staying in their home is not viable when pain and symptoms need to be managed at a more intense level of care for a period of time; a hospice house is the perfect option. At present, those needing or wanting a hospice house setting for this pain and symptom management have only one option – to leave the county. This led HWC is build Doey’s House, a 12-bed inpatient hospice house that will provide general inpatient and respite services for hospice patients right here in Washington County.

The new hospice house was started because of the vision and commitment of Neal Glessner. Neal realized the need for a hospice house in our community when trying to find placement for his terminally ill mother, Doris “Doey” Glessner. Neal and his wife Mary chair a group of leaders in the community to fundraise for this important project through a $5,000,000 Capital Campaign and $5,000,000 Endowment Campaign.

Individuals and businesses who would like to donate to the room in honor of veterans can call Karen Giffin at 301-791-6360 or email kmgiffin@hospiceofwc.org to become part of this vital project to bring a hospice house to our community.
