Foundation Donates to Northwoods Alliance for Temporary Housing (NATH)
Saint Mary’s Hospital Foundation recently donated $2,000 to Northwoods Alliance for Temporary Housing (NATH) to be used for miscellaneous medical supplies for residents of Frederick Place. “Like any household, residents need a variety of over-the-counter medications,” states Judith Pagano, MD, past-chair of the SMH Foundation and NATH volunteer. “Also, because of their individual needs, residents may need prescription medication refills, medical assistive devices and other health care equipment.” Residents often are able to use the Springer Health Access Program at Ministry Saint Mary’s Hospital, also supported by the SMH Foundation, for basic medical care and some prescription medications.
Saint Mary’s Hospital Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization that embraces the mission of Ministry Health Care and Ministry Saint Mary’s…Faithful to the values that guide the Sisters (of the Sorrowful Mother), our Mission is to further the healing ministry of Jesus by continually improving the health and well-being of all people, especially the poor, in the communities we serve.
In collaboration with the Hospital, the Foundation identifies critical health needs, and through philanthropy, sponsors programs and services that help to shape the quality and availability of health care and enhance the health status of all people in Ministry Saint Mary’s Hospital service area.
