Corporate Partners Award Event Highlights

Mission Hospital Corporate Partners recently gathered at Monarch Beach Resort to recognize George O’Connell and O’Connell Landscape Maintenance for their philanthropic leadership with the Spirit of Giving Award. The award celebrates an organization or individual who lives the core values of Mission Hospital - Dignity, Service, Excellence and Justice - and works to bring people together to foster a shared responsibility for the quality of life in our community.

George O’Connell has been an engaged member of the Mission Hospital family for more than 15 years. George and his brother Michael established O’Connell Landscape Maintenance in 1971 with $60 cash and a borrowed truck. They build the business based on quality relationships with each one of their customers and today employ over 1,200 people. In addition to Mission Hospital, O’Connell Landscape Maintenance and the O’Connell Family Foundation support a wide range of community-based organizations and charities.

After receiving the award, George challenged event guests and our community with a $100,000 matching gift. George announced that he will match each donation given in the next 60 days in support of Mission’s Emergency Department and Trauma Program up to $100,000. The Emergency Department and Trauma Program has been a longstanding passion and focus for George.

These matching funds will enable Mission Hospital to purchase two critical pieces of technology: Mini Fluoroscopy Scanners and Portable Ultra Sound Machines. These medical technologies allow our clinicians to bring essential diagnostic equipment to the bedside for prompt diagnosis, eliminating the need to move critically injured patients.
