Woody Anderson Ford thanks Madison Hospital workers with free car services

MADISON – A local car dealer is proving its appreciation to front-line workers and first responders who have persevered during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Woody Anderson Ford and the Ford Corporation have been providing the complimentary vehicle service to health care workers. “Woody Anderson selected Madison Hospital to start with. (The service) not only benefitted Madison Hospital but was provided by a Madison company,” Madison Hospital President Mary Lynne Wright said.

“The service days proved to be a helpful way for Woody Anderson Ford to support Madison Hospital,” Wright said.

“We have been dealing with the pandemic for months now, and, during this time, it has been difficult to take care of the day-to-day nuances of life, like changing the oil in your vehicle. It’s easy to let that slip and not take care of it,” Wright said.

“Woody Anderson Ford made this generous offer to come onsite to Madison Hospital to change oil and rotate tires in any type vehicle for healthcare providers,” Wright said. “They set up ‘bays’ in our parking lot, and employees simply parked their car in the area, had the service performed and picked their cars up in the afternoon. How simple is that?”

Holly Oswell with Woody Anderson Ford said the company greatly enjoyed having the opportunity to serve the employees of Madison Hospital in this unique way during “Mobile Service Day.”

The service days are affiliated with “a national initiative by Ford Motor Company and quickly picked up by Cathy Anderson and Woody Anderson Ford,” Wright said. “The generosity of Woody Anderson Ford and the Ford Company was overwhelming.”

“While our entire nation is dealing with this pandemic, not all are taking care of the patients with COVID. Giving back to the medical community was a powerful statement to the support that Woody Anderson Ford provides to this community. We could not be more grateful,” Wright said.

All Madison Hospital employees were eligible for the offer Mobile Service Day. Wright said the hospital employees were overwhelmed by Woody Anderson Ford’s offer. “Several employees emailed me and said they couldn’t believe this was being done for them at no cost,” she said.

More than 100 hospital workers took advantage of the offer. If the vehicle could not be serviced on the dates that Woody Anderson Ford was onsite, hospital workers could register to take their vehicle later to Woody Anderson Ford’s service center.

Woody Anderson Ford’s address in Madison is 1638 Hughes Road. For more information, call 256-517-1252, email hoswell@woodyandersonford.com or visit WoodyAndersonFord.com.
