The Christian Hospital Foundation creates opportunities for individuals and organizations to provide vital support that directly improves the health and wellness of our community.
Community Outreach & Benefit Programs
Each year, Christian Hospital provides hundreds of wellness programs, health screenings and educational opportunities, many of which are made possible through funds raised by the foundation. Some of these include:
- Helping thousands stay healthy with the Just Lose It weight loss program
- Free flu clinics, mammograms, blood glucose and cholesterol checks, and many more free health screenings
- Production of brochures covering topics like heart disease, cancer and orthopedics
- Events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and the American Heart Association Heart Walk
Other efforts include more direct fundraising campaigns, typically for a specific piece of equipment to support a new or innovative treatment. For example, the $1.4 million hybrid room at Chrisitan Hospital combines the sterile environment of an operating room with a Cardiac Catheterization Lab. Campaigns like this are a direct result of the financial support from generous community donors and Christian Hospital team members.
