Help a Local NICU Family

Union Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit provides care for approximately 300 babies each year. When a baby is hospitalized, the cost for families traveling back and forth each day can quickly add up. In many cases, the added financial hardship of daily transportation often burdens parents and prevents them from spending valuable time at their child’s bedside.

That’s why Union Health Foundation created the NICU Fuel Assistance Fund. Current NICU families who are experiencing financial difficulties receive $25 gas gift cards to help offset the cost of travel.

Cardiac Rehab Dedication & Expansion

Union Health Foundation hosted the Vern W. Fellows family during a dedication ceremony to celebrate the expansion and renovation of Union Health’s Cardiac Rehab Center. The Center was named in honor of Vern W. Fellows, for his generous philanthropy and more than 30 years of services to the Foundation and Union Hospital. Vern was also a patient and advocate of the Cardiac Rehab Program.

Construction was recently completed on the 540-square-foot expansion of the center. The renovations increase capacity for equipment and patient utilization. The center serves approximately 300 patients annually and provides patients with a 12-week customized exercise program to help achieve their heart health goal. According to Union Health’s 2021 Community Health Needs Assessment, four of the six Indiana Wabash Valley counties fall in the bottom quartile of the state (worst 25%) for age-adjusted death rate due to coronary heart disease.
