Porter Health Care System was named "Company of the Year" by United Way of Porter County at the 2013 United Way Volunteer of the Year Awards State Banquet held March 7, at the Fountains Banquet and Conference Center, Carmel.

“With health as one of United Way’s primary impact areas, it was an honor to nominate Porter Health Care System, which has been recognized for the award-winning medical care it provides to Northwest Indiana,” said Sharon A. Kish, President of United Way of Porter County.

United Way annually invests in three core initiatives which serve as the building blocks for a good quality of life: Health, Education and Financial Stability.

Led by CEO Jonathan Nalli, and CFO Cheryl Harmon, who serves as United Way’s current Board Chair, Porter Health Care System is committed to United Way efforts. Nalli and his wife, Cathleen, chaired United Way’s 2011/12 annual Campaign, which raised $1.8 million in Porter County.

This past year, Porter also hosted United Way’s 1st annual CEO Leadership Breakfast in the new Porter Regional Hospital before it opened. With standing room only, the event was a great start to the campaign. In addition, Porter served as the Premier Sponsor for United Way’s annual Golf Classic in its 1st year at Sand Creek Country Club, and will serve again this year in 2013.

“Porter Health Care System is a great advocate for volunteerism,” added Kish. In 2012, the company served as the Corporate Steward Sponsor for the United Way Regional Volunteer Center. Among the sponsored activities is the Regional Day of Caring, which attracts more than 2,000 volunteers each year.
