JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Eastman Credit Union on Friday, Dec. 13, presented the Mountain States Foundation with a check pledging $100,000 for the Foundation’s radiation oncology capital campaign.

“Eastman Credit Union looks for opportunities to improve the communities where our members live,” said Olan O. Jones, president and CEO of Eastman Credit Union. “It’s an honor to contribute to the treatment center expansion and the purchase of the new radiation system. This improvement in cancer care has the potential to make a significant difference in the lives of our members, their families and their neighbors.”

Mountain States Foundation has committed to raising $7 million for the $15 million project that will expand the current treatment center at Johnson City Medical Center (JCMC) and improve technology – including the purchase of the Varian TrueBeam radiation system which will allow physicians to target cancer cells with pinpoint accuracy.

“We truly appreciate this generous donation from Eastern Credit Union,” said Pat Holtsclaw, president of Mountain States Foundation. “They recognize the value of this project, which is so greatly needed by the folks who are facing cancer in our area, and they’ve been a great community partner and really stepped up early in the campaign.”
