Serving those who need us most

This past year we’ve provided 167 individuals in our community with individual support dollars through the Foundation’s Patient Assistance Program. The up to $300 in grants, target patients with critical needs who are about to leave the hospital.

Patients are extremely grateful for the support at a time when they do not have funds for co-payments, transportation to and from medical appointments, vital medications, and durable medical equipment necessary for their recovery.

Our care staff are often the ones that see the patient needs most clearly and initiate requests. They are compassionate for the financial and personal vulnerability faced by many patients as they leave our hospital care.

“I couldn’t afford to go to my appointment with my doctor. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me with my co-pay.”
