2013 Annual Employee Campaign “Team Community Howard”

Community Howard employees are an integral part of the Community Howard Regional Health team. As with all teams, in order to make the team work better for everyone, they must give something to it and receive something from it. The respect of people in the community and the opportunity to make a difference to our patients are just a couple of the benefits they get from being part of our team. Hard work, dedication and caring are some of the many things you give. The Foundation plays a role in this give and receive, too. As we have in the past, we will continue to provide financial support for the entire Community Howard team.

Every dollar you contribute stays right here in this community...

…employees helping employees in need.
The Employees Helping Employees fund has helped over 14 employees in need over the past year. Funds have been used to pay for utilities, insurance and even groceries.

…helping the community by providing funds for new equipment and programs.
The Foundation provided over $68,000 in funds for new equipment this past year. A few examples include: NEO-Tee Infant Resuscitators for the Birthing Center; Shelving units for Food & Nutrition; Recumbent Bike & AQQUA Active Bike for Replay; V60 BiPap Machine for Respiratory Therapy; Zoll Auto Pulse System for the Emergency Department; and ballistics vests for the Ambulance Department.

…helping uninsured patients get treatment and support they can’t afford.
Approximately 300 patients received assistance for prescriptions, cab rides and other needs through the patient assistance funds at the Foundation.

…helping hospital employees obtain critical certifications and education support.
Twenty employees received training, certifications or attended conferences this past year for approximately $15,000 through the Robert F. Miller Continuing Education Grant.
