Caring for the Community

University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center has provided outstanding, compassionate care to Lorain County and the surrounding communities for over 110 years. With support from the Elyria Medical Center Foundation, the hospital provides services that benefit the entire community, including public health screenings, ongoing education for healthcare, and convenient access to the new Family Birth Center.

Since the summer of 2002, the Elyria Medical Center Foundation has hosted the Elyria Golf Classic, the foundation's largest fundraiser of the year. "The initial response to the event was overwhelming," said Kim Tweardy, the outing's founder and chair. "It remains one of the largest golf outings in Lorain County."

An avid golfer herself, Kim devotes her time every year to chair the fundraiser. "I'm lucky to be able to enjoy an active lifestyle, and happy that my hobby can generate funds to support the lifesaving work provided by UH Elyria Medical Center," she said.

Kim will join more than 200 other players at Elyria Country Club on Monday, July 23, 2018 for the 17th Annual Elyria Golf Classic. By the day’s end more than $50,000 is expected to be raised for UH Elyria Medical Center Emergency Department.

Golfers will compete in a traditional four-person scramble and enjoy breakfast and lunch as well as raffle prizes, hole competitions, a social reception, dinner and awards. Each foursome with have the option to choose either a morning or afternoon shotgun start.

"People look forward to a beautiful day on the course and an opportunity to support this great cause, " said Kim. "UH Elyria Medical Center has been a mainstay here for generations of families, and I’m thrilled to have a part in continuing our community's tradition of giving back."
