• Hospital Departments Receive Foundation Funds

    September 18, 2012 No comments

    Hendricks Regional Health Foundation recently provided $13,500 to help fund four projects at Hendricks Regional Health, bringing the total to $25,000 for 2012. The funds were awarded in the second of two annual grant cycles in which hospital departments submit requests in support of projects or programs that enhance patient comfort and safety, medical care and/or community health.

    Joe Neher, Foundation Board Chair, explained, “Much of the money we raise throughout the year is directed to provide health services at Hendricks Regional Health for people in need and community outreach programs including health screenings. This internal grant program provides additional funds for important projects and programs that are not part of the hospital’s annual budget, but are meaningful for patients and support the ‘Treat People Better’ philosophy.”

    Hospital departments and projects receiving funds are:

    • Education Department –      software for advanced cardiac life support training
    • Physical Therapy –      compression wraps for patients in need
    • Emergency Department – electronic      patient care reporting software to enhance and better relay information      provided by first responders
    • Nursing – capnography      instrumentation to help measure carbon dioxide output in patients      following anesthesia

    The next set of grants for hospital projects or programs will be awarded in February 2013.

    The mission of Hendricks Regional Health Foundation is to build healthier families by supporting outreach programs and health services at Hendricks Regional Health.
