The arrival of COVID-19 to our region earlier this year presented the Christian Hospital Foundation with unforeseen challenges. As our community was disproportionately affected by the pandemic— revealing disparities in health care and access—more neighbors, colleagues, family members and friends than ever were in need of help.
We are sincerely grateful for the heartfelt support the Foundation received in response to the pandemic, which adversely affects our community and our organization.
Many individuals and area restaurants donated food, personal protective equipment and money to assist our frontline heroes. Our mission to improve the health and wellness of our community would not be possible without the ongoing generosity of our donors.
Every day, we're honored to play a part in real people's positive experiences who entrust their care to Christian Hospital. Our patients are receiving world-class care right where they live.
We're able to provide the most advanced treatment and procedures available because of our compassionate and experienced health care professionals. And we're able to make such a significant difference in people's lives because of our generous donors.
Our commitment extends beyond hospital walls, ensuring everyone in our community receives the necessary resources for improved health. To further this effort, we've built partnerships with other organizations that share this same mission.
We're pleased to recognize our generous donors whose support enhances our ability to provide vital support to Christian Hospital in the areas of patient care, advanced medicine and technology, community benefit programs and staff education in our 2020 Community Report.
Together, we're making our community stronger, better and healthier.
Thank you for your continued meaningful support of the Christian Hospital Foundation.
With warmest gratitude,
Rick L. Stevens, FACHE
President, Christian Hospital
