Dr. Randy Stevens Scholarship Fund

Dr. Stevens devoted his remarkable 40-year-career to improving the health and well-being of his patients. His first role in the medical field was serving as a medic in Vietnam, seeing first hand the struggle veterans had with heroin addiction. During his tenure, Dr. Stevens helped thousands of people escape the grips of addiction. Dr. Stevens also spent much of his career advocating for rural health care. Under his leadership, the Family Practice residency program expanded and received national acclaim for its rural health focus.

This scholarship fund recognizes his unparalleled service and leadership to healthcare and education in the Wabash Valley and will aid qualified students pursuing a doctorate in medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine – Terre Haute.

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.

UHF Day at Chick-fil-A Raises $10,000

 

Chick-fil-A, Terre Haute, is donating 100% of sales from all mobile food orders on Tuesday, Oct. 4 to benefit the Pediatric Therapy Fund.

The Fund provides financial assistance to families in need, including those with commercial insurance that either deny therapy as a covered benefit or reach their visit limit for the year and still require therapy services. Eligible parents and/or guardians of pediatric patients pay only a $10 co-pay for each therapy visit, and the fund pays for the remainder of the fee. In the last three years, 104 children from the Wabash Valley were helped receiving a total of 1,513 therapy appointments!
