$1 Million Gift Boosts Downriver Community
Date:9/18/2007

TRENTON, Mich., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oakwood Southshore Medical Center (OSMC) is one step closer to fulfilling its "Southshore Promise," thanks to a generous gift from Anthony J. Pellegrino. Pellegrino donated $1 million recently to support the downriver hospital.

"The Southshore Promise is really our pledge to the downriver community," said Edith Hughes, division president, Oakwood Southshore Medical Center. "We are in the business of saving and changing lives, and this gift helps us to achieve that commitment." The project consists of three separate initiatives - community outreach and educational opportunities, investment in innovative technology and the building of the new five-story pavilion on the campus.

"We'll have a state-of-the-art community hospital, offering a full range of services for people in the downriver area," said Hughes. " I am very excited about being able to provide this for the community we serve, the physicians who practice here and for the employees and volunteers who work here."

Pellegrino, a resident of Laredo, Texas, founded Transportation Services, Inc. (TSI) Interstate Trucking in 1979. Headquartered in Romulus, Michigan, the company has grown rapidly as a major long-haul truckload transportation provider. "I believe everyone in our community should be treated like a VIP with access to the latest medical technology and the comfort of a private hospital room," explained Pellegrino. "I also wanted to ensure that TSI employees and local residents have a cutting edge facility in their own backyard that raises the bar for other healthcare systems statewide."

This gift makes Pellegrino among the most generous individual donors to Oakwood, and one of the largest-ever healthcare donors to the downriver community. "The entire site will be designed around our patients," said Carla O'Malley, executive director and president, Oakwood Healthcare System Foundation. "This gift will help us to fully realize our vision of providing the best possible care to the people of this community. We are truly thankful for Mr. Pellegrino's generosity and support of the Southshore Promise, and we are also honored to have Mr. Pellegrino as honorary chair of the campaign."

An event will be held to celebrate Mr. Pellegrino's generous contribution to the campaign on Thursday, September 20, 2007 at the Grosse Ile Golf & Country Club in Grosse Ile, Michigan.
