Sedgwick CMS Gift Supports Walter Reed Patients, Families

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc. (Sedgwick CMS) announced a gift today of $150,000 to the Walter Reed Society, the private auxiliary support organization for Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC). The gift will be used by the Walter Reed Society's Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF) Support Fund for assistance grants to soldiers and the families of soldiers receiving treatment at WRAMC for wounds received in Iraq, Afghanistan and related operations. Sedgwick CMS colleagues (employees) raised approximately half of the amount, and the Company matched their contribution.

Sedgwick CMS President and CEO David A. North and a delegation including four Sedgwick CMS colleagues with recent service in OIF/OEF presented the contribution to the Walter Reed Society today at a ceremony at WRAMC in Washington, D.C. Major General (Ret) Enrique Mendez, formerly Commander of WRAMC and Under Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs and a past President of the Walter Reed Society, accepted the gift on behalf of the organization.

"The Walter Reed Society performs outstanding and compassionate service through its efforts to ease family burdens and speed healing for men and women of our military who have made great sacrifices in the line of duty," said North. "The Society helps facilitate healthy and productive recoveries for wounded soldiers in all the areas of their lives. I believe the people of Sedgwick CMS relate so strongly to this mission because as a provider of disability and workers' compensation services for ill and injured civilian employees we are concerned with similar objectives. It is truly our privilege to support our friends, family members and fellow citizens in the armed services through today's gift."

Information about the Walter Reed Society is available at or from Walter Reed Society Vice President of Patient Services SGM (Ret) Daniel J. Bullis, 202-782-8937.
