Grateful Patient Makes Donation to Miami Valley Hospital Regional Adult Burn Center

Miami Valley Hospital Foundation received a generous gift to support the hospital’s Regional Burn Center. Grateful patient, Roger Poeppelmeier, made the donation after spending 28 days in the Miami Valley Hospital Burn Unit in 1991.

Poeppelmeier said has always wished to make a significant contribution to the Burn Unit and now is able to do so after selling his home. On May 26, 2022, Roger met with Mike Uhl, president of Miami Valley Hospital; Jenny Lewis, system vice president of philanthropy at Premier Health and president and CEO of Miami Valley Hospital Foundation; as well as nurses from the Burn Unit and hospital Foundation members for a check presentation.

During his visit, Roger met with three of the nurses and therapists who helped care for him nearly 31 years ago in the Burn Unit.
