    Support for St. Mary Mercy Livonia Makes a Difference
    Summer 2010 was an exciting season for St. Mary Mercy Livonia and its supporters. In July, the Hospital welcomed its
    first class of 40 resident physicians into the Graduate Medical Education (GME) program. And, in the same month,
    the new Senior Emergency Department (ED) was opened – the first of its kind in the state of Michigan. Donors to
    recent St. Mary Mercy special events helped to make it possible to reach these two milestones.

    Graduate Medical Education – Clinical Research Program
    Gifts from community members, local businesses, physician practices and staff for the 2009 “Tee it Up” Golf Classic and
    2009 Gala – totaling $408,000 – benefited the clinical research component of the GME program. Philanthropic funding
    supports designated professional time for physician researchers/teachers. And, gifts help to purchase advanced tools that
    are integral to research. The GME Clinical Research program fosters an environment of innovation that is essential to
    pioneering new treatments and practices and providing state-of-the-art medicine to the community.

    “Being a teaching hospital has great advantages. The faculty physicians participate in leading edge research and become
    experts in the latest protocols in order to train the medical residents. Our patients benefit from that,” said Susan Greenwood-
    Clark, Director of the SMMH Graduate Medical Program. “Offering medical residents opportunities to participate in research
    alongside expert physicians is a huge draw to bring the best and brightest students to serve our community.”

    “It is wonderful that our supporters recognize the importance of the GME Clinical Research program and have given so
    generously,” said SMMH Development Director Sara Stauffer. “The benefits of their gifts have no limit because research is the
    key to the future of medical care at St. Mary Mercy and beyond.”

    Senior Emergency Department
    Gifts for the 2010 Golf Classic, chaired by Tim Belanger and
    Bob Phillips, supported the Senior Emergency Center. Proceeds
    totaling more than $220,000 helped to build this separate center
    within the Hospital’s existing Emergency Department to better
    meet the needs of seniors who have complex health issues.

    “Livonia has the highest percentage of seniors of all cities in the
    State of Michigan. And, seniors make up two thirds of our ER
    patients,” said SMMH President and CEO Dave Spivey. “Having
    the Senior ED will help us to strengthen care for a growing and
    unique patient population and to better serve our community.”

    Features of the Senior ED include private rooms to reduce
                                                                       St. Mary Mercy Livonia’s is the first of eight Senior Emergency Departments

    improve safety and large print materials to ease reading. Staff
    and physicians are specially trained to treat emergencies while assessing the patients’ overall health.

    During a patient’s stay at the Senior ED, a multidisciplinary team will assess physical function, cognitive status and
    level of risk. The approach will also include pharmacy and social work consultations, which will help seniors and their
    caregivers develop a care plan upon discharge from the ED.

    “This discharge process assures a seamless transition back to the home or other care setting, and substantially lessens the
    probability of a return visit for the same health issue,” explains Dr. George Williams, Co-chair of the SJMHS Senior ED
    initiative and Chief of Staff at St. Joseph Mercy Saline.

    The 2010 Gala, Autumn in New York, chaired by Sandra Bojrab, will also benefit the Senior ED. The event fund-raising goal
    is $200,000. For more information about the upcoming Gala and other Health System holiday events, please see the back page for
    dates, locations and contact phone numbers.

On July 7, a special unit for medicine and stroke patients and a specialty care
unit for older adults opened on 4 North.

Over the remainder of the summer, the 33-year old Legacy (1000) Tower and
main lobby were gently demolished (70% of the material is being recycled) to
make way for the final phase of the new Hospital’s construction. In September,
ground will be broken for the new main lobby, which will open next year, just
in time for St. Joseph Mercy Hospital’s centennial celebration.

“Donors to the Renewal Campaign have helped to make this progress
possible,” said SJMHS Vice President for Development Camille B. Shy.
“We are grateful for the continued support to help maintain St. Joe’s as a truly
state-of-the-art healing environment.”

     2010 St. Joe’s Pro Am
     Community members and local businesses made gifts totaling more than
     $133,000 in support of the 2010 St. Joe’s Pro Am. Chris LaJoy chaired the
     successful event, which was held on June 28 at Pheasant Run Golf Club.
     Each of the 48 teams golfed with a PGA professional, and golfers played to
     support uninsured and underinsured patients receiving care at the St. Joseph
     Mercy Canton Center for Advanced Medicine and Surgery.

     Twenty-eight year-old Mark Doughty – a loyal Pro Am participant, a Pheasant
     Run staff member, and a cancer survivor – served as the guest speaker. “When
     I was diagnosed, I couldn’t believe it…I’m a young and healthy guy with a
     good job, so I never thought I would need help covering all the costs that go
     along with being sick,” Mr. Doughty addressed the golfers. “St. Joe’s was able
     to treat my cancer, and thanks to the support of generous people like you, they
     were also able to help with costs related to my treatment.”                                                    Chair Chris LaJoy with hockey legend Ted Lindsay

     Players enjoyed the wonderful weather and spending the day with fellow
     golfers and local celebrities including former Detroit Red Wings Ted Lindsay
     and Joe Kocur and radio show host Jeff Lesson. Meijer of Canton served as the
     Graphite Sponsor.

     Chris LaJoy and Jeff Lesson presented the awards to the tournament’s first
     place men’s team of Priority Health, first place women’s team of SJMHS,
     first place mixed team of Barton Malow Company, second place men’s team of
     St. Mary Mercy Livonia, second place women’s team of Foley, Baron &                                             Garry C. Faja, SJMHS President and CEO; Mike

     And, the closet-to-the-pin contest winners were Barbara Faja, Mary Williams,                                    Mark Doughty, PGA Apprentice; John Burkhardt,

                                                                                                                       MD, SJMH Major Gifts Committee Co-Chair
     “We are grateful to the sponsors of the event who help St. Joe’s to provide
     advanced medical care right here in the Canton community,” said Chair Chris
     LaJoy. “Hearing Mark Doughty share his experience as a patient, many golfers
     at the event were reminded of the ways they have personally benefited from the
     support that the Pro Am generates, and thought about just how important it is
     to have excellent care so close to home if family, friends or colleagues need it.”

                                                                                                                  Golfer and Red Wings fan Tom Tocco, SJMHS Director
