New Technology Improving Patient Care
Donations to Union Health Foundation brought groundbreaking technology to the Wabash Valley in December 2020. The Foundation awarded a $97,500 grant to Union Hospital to purchase a Masimo SafetyNet patient management system.
Debbie Nickles, a 65-year-old Paris, Illinois resident, is just one of many patients who have benefited from this new technology.
UHF Day at Chick-fil-A
$10,000 for Pediatric Therapy
Thank you to everyone who supported the Pediatric Therapy Fund on UHF Day at Chick-fil-A. The Terre Haute location had its highest day of mobile food orders ever – resulting in a $8,500 donation to Union Health Foundation’s Fund! Chick-fil-A owners, Evan and Lauren Williamson rounded up that donation to an even $10,000!
The Pediatric Therapy 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/guardians pay only a $10 co-pay for each therapy visit, and the fund pays for the remainder of the fee. Over the last three years, 116 kids from the Wabash Valley were supported through this Fund
Employee Giving Campaign
Even though the official campaign is over, our employees can still “Give A Difference” and help support patient assistance programs, new medial equipment, continuing education, healthcare services and community health initiatives.
Your Gifts In Action
This past year has been one of unprecedented challenges and change. Incredible generosity helped Union Health Foundation be part of raising more than $846,000 through philanthropy. There is an act of kindness behind each and every one of those dollars. We hope this report illustrates the tangible impact charitable support has on the patients and community we serve.
Local Family Gives Back
For the past two years, Ravyn and Alec Enstrom have organized a softball tournament to raise money for Union Health Foundation’s Bereavement Services Fund. The tournament, “Batting for Barrett” is in honor of their son Barrett Richard Antone Enstrom who was stillborn on December 7, 2018.
