Gifts of Farmland
 The Passavant Foundation is the owner or trust beneficiary of over 4,000 acres of farmland. The Foundation shares 423 acres with four local institutions: Berea Church, Bob Freesen YMCA, Hebron Cemetery and Illinois College.

The Passavant Farms are managed by professional farm managers with oversight by the Passavant Foundation Farm Advisory Committee. Annual income from the Passavant Farms is directed by the donors for patient financial assistance, nurse scholarships and for “Greatest Need.”

The Foundation’s philosophy is to retain and operate productive farmland. Stewardship of the land is overseen by the Passavant Farm Advisory Committee, a group of hospital board directors and local farmers. The committee works closely with farm managers and farm operators to ensure best land management practices.

Tamera Norton Honored with Daisy Award

Posted on: May 17, 2017

Tamera Norton, a registered nurse in the Transitional Care Unit, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award at Passavant Area Hospital. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. A grateful patient nominated Tamera for the honor: “Over the course of my 28 days at Passavant, I became concerned about my progress. I expressed my concern to Tamera. She took note and promised to try and resolve. She made many phone calls until she was able to make an appointment for me. She kept me informed every step of the way and helped arrange for me to leave the unit for the doctor’s appointment. The result of the appointment not only eased my mind, but caused a complete change in my therapy. Tamera cared for my needs unfailingly and always with professional and pleasant attitudes. The rest was way beyond the call of duty.” After receiving the award, Tamera is considering becoming a Daisy ambassador to help spread the word about her experiences. “As a nurse, our common core is to care that much about our patients. I was just trying to provide the good, quality care that our patients want,” Tamera said.
