PVH and MCR Foundation announce $520,000 estate gift for employee scholarships

The Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies Foundation received a $520,000 donation from the estate of Dr. Richard G. Titus to provide scholarships for northern region employees of University of Colorado Health.

The bequest honors the care Dr. Titus received from University of Colorado Health medical staff during his life, recognizes those engaged in the medical profession and furthers his lifelong commitment to education.

"We are honored that Dr. Titus chose to leave a legacy through supporting our hospitals," said Mike Dellenbach, chairman of the PVH and MCR Foundation Board. "His gift is a wonderful expression of gratitude to our nurses and employees for the care he received here," said Dellenbach.

Dr. Titus was a former Colorado State University faculty member in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology. He passed away in 2012.

A portion of his gift will support scholarships for nurse leaders and the remainder will provide general scholarship support for qualified employees through the foundation's scholarship program.

"This generous gift allows us to facilitate the learning that is essential for our employees to stay current in their professions, with the increased complexity of the healthcare needs of today and into the future," said Bonnie Clipper, chief nursing officer for Medical Center of the Rockies.

The PVH and MCR Foundation honors individuals through membership in the Circle of Caring legacy society who have named the foundation in their estate plans. To learn more about the Circle of Caring, contact the foundation at 970.237.7400.
