It looks like Toyota is trying its hand in the medical field. While the Japanese carmaker won’t be operating on anyone anytime soon, Toyota was honored last week as the recipient of the UW Medicine Lifetime Achievement Award. Honda earned the honor for its continual commitment to supporting the Harborview Medical Center, one of UW Medicine’s top-notch teaching hospitals. This award was given due to the carmaker’s $875,000 in donations over the course of eight years, which has allowed the hospital to provide a multitude of patients with superior hospital care.
“We’re extremely humbled by this honor and proud of our partnership with UW Medicine,” said Mike O’Brien, president of the Western Washington Toyota Dealers. “Toyota is committed to supporting organizations that make a difference in the community and raise the bar for the quality of life in Western Washington. UW Medicine’s Harborview Medical Center provides excellent care through its Mission of Caring, helping to make our community healthier and happier.”
The award was given at UW Medicine Turner Society’s annual Tomorrow Today celebration. This celebration focuses on breakthroughs in medical research, patient care, and education.
