Macomb—Charlene Callison and Larry Balsamo have generously pledged $250,000 toward the Dolores Kator Switzer Women’s Center (DKSWC) at McDonough District Hospital. The Nursery will be named in honor of Charlene’s mother Marion P. Callison and Charlene G. Callison.

“Charlene and Larry are extremely philanthropic and continue to take a lead role in advancing healthcare services in our community,” said MDH President/CEO Kenny Boyd. “In addition to this gift, they are Diamond level members of the MDH Golden Apple Society.”

“It is very exciting to see plans progress for a new Women’s Center at MDH. The Callison Nursery will mean so much to families and provide a modernized peaceful environment for newborns,” said Dr. Tamara Smith, OB/GYN and DKSWC Campaign Co-Chair. “Charlene and Larry’s pledge brings us to nearly $3.7M of our $5.5M campaign goal!”
