LANCASTER, Ohio (July 23, 2014) – On July 11, Fairfield Medical Center received a generous donation of $45,809.30 from Aladdin Shriners for the purchase of various pediatric equipment for Outpatient Therapy Services, Maternity and Project BRIGHT.

Hank Kauffman, Jr., president of Tarhe Shrine Club, and III. Sir D. Dee Mowry, past potentate of Aladdin Shriners, presented two checks to Sky Gettys, interim CEO and chief financial officer.
