2022 GivingTuesday Report

GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, held this year on November 29. For our fourth annual GivingTuesday observance, DOC challenged our property management team to plan and carry out a GivingTuesday event at their properties based around the theme, “United in Giving.” In usual DOC fashion, they did not disappoint. Below is a sampling of the GivingTuesday initiatives that took place across our portfolio:

Little Rock & Hot Springs, AR: The Sage Partners team of Abby Brown and Linda Hinton held a Day of Giving and collected winter coats across their portfolio for Our House, a Little Rock non-profit helping the homeless. Together, the team collected 80 coats and, as a thank you, served hot cocoa and donuts to all participating tenants.

Phoenix, AZ: The Davis team of Brenda Cerkoske and Angela Escamillo hosted a Diaper Drive Contest, pitting tenant suites against one another, to donate the most diapers for Maggie’s House, a Phoenix-area non-profit that helps mothers and children. The dynamic duo collected 470 diapers for the local charity, and the winning tenant suite won a special prize.

Dover, DE: Eden Hill Medical Center coordinated a food drive competition thanks to the efforts of property manager Trish Johnson from CSA Property Management. The team at Urology Associates donated the lion’s share of the food, with over 500 food items received. In total, the property donated 735 pounds of food, and the Urology Associates team received ice cream cakes as a sweet reward.

Indianapolis, IN: The Indianapolis-based Cornerstone Team, including Megan Drummond and Chanelle Mitchell, asked tenants to donate new toys for the Toys for Tots program, as well as to make monetary contributions to Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. As a sweet reward, the team passed out themed cake pops and beautifully decorated cookies from a local bakery. The outpouring of donations was so incredible that the team extended the collection timeframe to accommodate everyone wanting to give, and they ultimately filled two pallets full of toys!

Minneapolis, MN: The Davis team, led by Peggy Schatz, Alicia Schaeffer, Melissa Gomes, and Emily Gruenhagen, assembled 150 gift bags for the Ronald McDonald House Charities-Upper Midwest. Their “Kits for a Cause,” curated especially for children and adults, included games, coloring books, fidget toys, word searches, toiletries, journals, and other such items, for the families of seriously ill children staying at the Twin Cities-area Ronald McDonald House.

Rochester, NY: Partnering with the Pluta Cancer Center Foundation, Brian Morath, property manager with RAP Management, delivered donation boxes to each suite in his five-building portfolio to collect items for cancer patient “comfort bags.”  Participating tenants had two weeks to amass items such as lip balm, coloring books, warm socks and hats, tea, and other comfort items. Then they brought the filled donation boxes to a central collection site for bag assembly.

Nashville, TN: Matt Leiser and Heather Webb, DOC’s Nashville property management team, and their tenants joined forces with Cambridge Holdings and the oneC1TY campus to host a coat drive benefitting Safe Haven Family Shelter and Nashville Rescue Mission. The team collected 42 adult and children’s winter coats for the two local homeless shelters.

Ft. Worth, TX: Cambridge Holdings’ Ft. Worth team, Wendy Martin and Jolene Wilson, sponsored a yarn collection drive benefitting Passing Hats, a local non-profit that knits and distributes hats to over 50 Texas locations serving cancer patients.

These stories represent a sampling of the many incredible acts of kindness organized across DOC’s portfolio. Thank you to our property management teams participating in DOC’s fourth annual GivingTuesday initiative and making a difference in their local communities. We are truly overwhelmed by their generosity!

DOC Cares: 2021 Year in Review

At DOC, we’re not only building healthier communities by owning and operating top-notch medical facilities, but also by rolling up our sleeves and engaging with the people and places we serve. We take great pride in promoting a culture of volunteerism and service to others. Here are just a few of our favorite moments in the community from 2021, and we can’t wait to make an even bigger difference in the year ahead.













GivingTuesday Recap

GivingTuesday is a global day of philanthropy, held annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It’s an opportunity for businesses and their various partners and stakeholders to come together to make a difference, in their unique way, for causes important to them and the communities they call home. At DOC, that’s always meant working hand-in-hand with our property managers and health care partners to create unique activations across our portfolio.

This year’s effort was inspired by a TikTok video created by the daughter of a former patient at our Baylor Scott & White Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center in Dallas, TX. The heartfelt and moving clip demonstrates just how much meaning can be sewn into a simple article of clothing and how comforting a warm coat can be to someone who is struggling. So, in that spirit of “Giving the Gift of Warmth,” we encouraged each of our property managers to stage coat drives or other related events at their facilities in the weeks leading up to GivingTuesday as part of this effort.

As usual, our committed and generous partners did not disappoint. Here is just a sampling of the GivingTuesday initiatives that took place across our portfolio this year:

Dallas, TX: Inspired by the heartfelt TikTok video, our DOC management team at the Baylor Scott & White Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center held in-person and virtual coat drives to benefit The Stewpot, a haven for homeless and at-risk individuals. Their efforts resulted in 80 coats and nearly 100 additional cold-weather items such as socks, gloves, and hats collected to support those in need.

Atlanta, GA: Our management partners at Realty Trust Group (RTG) facilitated a collection of winter coats and canned food items for local charities, including the Salvation Army, Nicholas House, Gwinnett Family Promise Mission, and My Sister’s House. The team amassed more than 100 coats and over 100 food items.

Fredericksburg, VA: Our partners at Flagship Health Properties hosted a coat drive and collected close to 50 adult and children’s coats for a local homeless shelter.

Indianapolis, IN: Our partners at Cornerstone Team asked their tenants to donate new toys for the Lawrence Fire Department’s Holiday Family Assistance Program and winter weather gear for Hamilton County Kids Coats program. In addition, the team shared themed cake pops and beautifully decorated cookies from a local bakery as a sweet reward. The response was so positive that the team extended the collection timeframe beyond GivingTuesday to accommodate everyone wanting to give.

Minneapolis, MN: The Minneapolis Davis Team volunteered at Second Harvest Heartland, packaging rice into one-pound containers to be distributed to food pantries across Minnesota. They also challenged their tenants to donate time to charities of their choosing.

Omaha, NE: DOC’s Omaha-based management team sponsored a coat drive at their Kearney and Omaha properties, encouraging their tenants and their patients to do some early “spring cleaning” to gather up unused warm clothing. Their efforts resulted in over 60 coats to benefit local charities.

Regardless of how our partners chose to participate, they all succeeded in spreading much-needed warmth within their communities. We’re so proud of their generosity and commitment to help DOC continue to Invest in better this holiday season and always.


Building Stability in Midtown

DOC is a longtime supporter of Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity. Earlier this summer, for the third year in a row, we were thrilled to continue making a difference for Milwaukee families in need. On two separate occasions, our team of eager volunteers donned masks and hard hats to help make “safer at home” a reality for one local family. Being able to work alongside Shaquita and help her realize her dream of becoming a first-generation homeowner is an experience we’ll never forget.

2021 cureHUNTER Fundraiser

At DOC, philanthropy is an integral part of our Invest in better® vision, and perhaps no cause is more near and dear to our hearts than the fight against pediatric cancer and the incredible work our friends at cureHUNTER are doing in this space. This Tennessee-based non-profit works to end the emotional, physical, and mental devastation of childhood cancer through both advocacy and research, and we’ve been proud to be partners of theirs since 2013 – raising nearly $270,000 in that span to support their critical work.

This summer, we are once again calling on all of our DOC partners to join us in raising critical funds to advance cureHUNTER’s work. With the impacts of the pandemic still lingering, we’re taking our fundraising efforts virtual through a new online raffle – with some once-in-a-lifetime prizes up for grabs.

Please help us bring an end to childhood cancer. Raffle entries start at just $20, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting cureHUNTER’s impactful work. Together, we can truly make a difference, and invest in better for the children and families battling this terrible illness.

cureHUNTER Virtual Fundraiser

In any other year, our annual fundraiser supporting cureHUNTER’s mission to end pediatric cancer would have been held in April at the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International’s Medical Office Buildings and Healthcare Real Estate Conference. While the event has been postponed, our commitment to making a difference for cureHUNTER is still going strong.

In lieu of our typical in-person event, on Wednesday, April 29, DOC was proud to match all donations made to support this crucial cause. The outpouring of generosity, particularly during these challenging times, was truly inspiring. We’re thrilled to report that we collectively raised $25,071 to continue cureHUNTER’s fight against childhood cancer.

“From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much to all who gave and also the DOC team for their continued support and ingenuity in bringing this virtual fundraiser to life,” cureHUNTER Founders Jill and Ryan Doyle said. “During a time like this, when there are so many worthy causes in need of financial assistance, it means the world to us to have your support as we continue our fight against pediatric cancer.”

Guest House with the Bevara Team

Recently, alongside our friends at Bevara Building Services, Asset Management team members at Physicians Realty Trust prepared and served a meal to the residents at the Guest House of Milwaukee. This is the second time that our DOC employees have partnered with the Guest House, and it was another meaningful and fun evening for all involved.

Next Door Gift Drive

In this season of giving, the Physicians Realty Trust team conducted an annual gift drive in partnership with Next Door Milwaukee. This nonprofit promotes school readiness and success in life for young Milwaukee children and families through exceptional early childhood programming and whole-family support services. Each year, the organization serves over 1,400 children ages 0-5 who live in poverty.

This annual gift drive began in 2015 through the adoption of one classroom and 25 children. Today, it has grown into one of our most-anticipated service events. Now in our fifth year, Physicians Realty Trust is proud to adopt two Next Door classrooms with 50 children served as well as two families. In total, our team provides about 100 gifts annually to spread the holiday cheer in our community.

Martina Stevens, a Volunteer Coordinator for Next Door Milwaukee, shared, “Thanks to all our generous donors, we were able to provide a special holiday season to 84 Next Door families and more than 1,000 students. I look forward to the joy this process brings, not only to our children and families but to our donors as well.”

Serving up Dinners at Guest House MKE

Ten Physicians Realty Trust volunteers planned, shopped, prepared, and served a dinner to 86 residents of the Guest House of Milwaukee. This nonprofit provides shelter, housing, education, and services to individuals who are homeless and seeking to transform their lives with dignity and purpose. The DOC Team had a great time working together with lots of laughs along the way, putting our C.A.R.E. philosophy into action by serving our community.

Volunteers not pictured include Mark Dukes, Joey Williams, and Erik Wahlgren.

Thank you, Team!

Summit: Saluting First Responders

At the 2019 DOC Management Summit, proceeds from our Casino Night event supported this year’s DOC Cares service recipient, the Wisconsin EMS Association (WEMSA). We chose WEMSA as our service project recipient in remembrance of the September 11 anniversary, which coincided with the first day of our Management Summit. Working together, we donated $6,155 to support WEMSA’s education and training efforts, along with over 100 stuffed animals given to kids in crisis by the WEMSA team. It was a fantastic evening of gaming and giving!

VTO Spotlight

As part of DOC’s commitment to our team members and communities, the company established a volunteer time off (VTO) program in 2019 to provide time off with pay for individual service efforts. Recently, a group of Physicians Realty Trust team members used this benefit and volunteered at HAWS (Humane Animal Welfare Society) in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The team cleaned, organized supplies, and gave all the animals some much-needed love and attention. Great job, Carla Perez, Jessica Bissett, Ann Gurka, Kelly Farina, Allison Brey, Morgan Fredericks, and Laura Kreiser!

Hunger Task Force Farm Trip

30 Physicians Realty Trust volunteers headed to the Hunger Task Force Farm in Franklin, Wisconsin to assist field maintenance while supporting our local community. Together, we learned about their 208-acre farm which provides half a million pounds of fresh foods and vegetables each year to enhance the nutrition of families across our region. We are proud to number among the 5,000+ volunteers who support this fantastic nonprofit annually with their sweat equity.

Impact100 MKE Gala

Physicians Realty Trust celebrates and supports its women leaders. Recently, members of our Team attended the annual awards celebration for Impact100 Greater Milwaukee. This women’s philanthropic organization collectively awards transformative grants that make a lasting impact on our community. Attendees included team members Jessica Bissett, Morgan Fredericks, Laura Kreiser, John Lucey, and Vanessa Petura, as well as Board of Trustees member Dr. Bill Ebinger.

The “Hunt” for a Cancer Cure

Our DOC Cares cureHUNTER charity fundraiser at the BOMA MOB Conference in Minneapolis was a smashing success! Together, we raised nearly $75,000 for pediatric cancer research. Thank you to all of the bidders on our silent auction items, and a special congrats to our friend Natalie Sproull from Capital One Healthcare for earning the honor to pie DOC EVP and CIO Deeni Taylor in the face for charity! Many thanks also to the auctioneer stylings of Courtney Nelson, from CommonSpirit Health  who helped pep up the crowd with her infectious energy. Again, a tremendous thank you to everyone that came out in support of this truly worthy cause.

Earth Day: River Clean Up

In honor of Earth Day, the DOC Team participated in an Annual Spring Clean Up coordinated by Milwaukee Riverkeeper. This local nonprofit works to create swimmable, fishable rivers for future generations of Milwaukeeans to enjoy. Despite the unseasonably cold temperatures, our team had a great time during this DOC Cares program by getting our hands dirty, knowing that we are making a difference in our community.

REACH Bowling for Charity

In partnership with Milwaukee’s Real Estate Alliance for Charity (REACH), Physicians Realty Trust participated in a bowl-a-thon event benefitting local nonprofits. The team had a fantastic time supporting such a great cause.

REACH is a non-profit organization that raises funds through interactive and engaging activities. Each year, REACH awards over $37,500 in grants to local charities. REACH focuses on supporting charities whose primary goal is to serve the needs of children in Wisconsin. To learn more, click here.
