For Bob Fogelsanger, Mount Nittany Health has been an important part of his life for as long as he can remember.

As a father and grandfather, Mount Nittany Medical Center is filled with happy memories of the births of his two grown daughters and three grandchildren. As president of Balfurd, Inc., the hospital is an important client of Balfurd’s Healthcare & Linen Rental division. And as a 10-handicap golfer, serving on the Golf Classic organizing committee to raise money for the health system is a perfect blending of his avocation and community mindedness.

“There are a lot of golf tournaments. Why are so many golfers playing in Mount Nittany Health’s tournament? I think people in our community understand the importance of the hospital and feel the same way I do about supporting our local hospital,” said Bob. “It’s the right thing to do to support our community’s healthcare.”

In addition to Bob’s volunteer commitment, Balfurd is a sponsor for the Golf Classic. And Bob and his wife, Connie, have also supported several medical center campaigns, including the Emergency Department and the East Wing.

“Health is important. And it’s important to support our community’s hospital,” said Bob. “We are lucky that if something happens to someone in your family, you don’t have to go somewhere a couple of hours away. We have a first-class facility right here.”
