Janzen honored at Henderson Health Care’s Spring Fling

February 21, 2019

On a cold and snowy evening, Henderson Health Care’s Spring Fling event warmed the hearts of a whole community.

After a seven-year hiatus, the fundraising event for Henderson Health Care drew over 140 attendees and totaled contributions of $31,615 toward the construction efforts of the new long-term care facility, Legacy Square. All told, Henderson Health Care has raised $769,978 toward the project. Nearly 77% of the $1 million goal.

However, donations weren’t the only heart-warming moment of the evening. Henderson Health Care Foundation President, Don Regier, honored a well-deserving Arvid Janzen with the Foundation’s Legacy Award for his contributions to health care in the Henderson community.

Arvid Janzen & Don Regier

Janzen, a former Henderson Health Care Foundation Board member for 23 years, has served health care in Henderson for over 35 years. A steadfast face on the Board of Directors, as well as the Foundation, Janzen served his first term on the Board in 1984 before becoming a charter member of the Foundation in 1995. His passion for Henderson Health Care runs deep. During an acceptance speech, Janzen said, “You hear constantly that people have come to Henderson Health Care and are happy with the care they received. It is because of the employees. The way they present themselves and the services that are available. It speaks not only to Henderson, but it speaks to all the communities we serve. Praise God.”

Janzen’s hard work and determination mirror the efforts put into the new long-term care facility. Henderson Health Care hopes to display the $8 million project to the community with a May open house. In speaking with future occupants of Legacy Square, the idea has been tossed around that residents may possibly move into the facility prior the open house to exhibit their true elation for their new home. The new home that would not be possible without the support of generous donors. If you are interested donating, please contact Henderson Health Care at 402-723-4014.
