If you’re interested in improving health and well-being both now and into the future, there’s no shortage of ways to get involved.
You can make a donation however you prefer – we’ll put your gift to work as soon as possible to make a difference in and around Hudson. Thank you for supporting local, high-quality health care programs.
From making a donation after lifesaving care to volunteering your time or helping to cover prescription costs for people in need, there are many ways to give back to Hudson Hospital Foundation and our community.
People who donate to Hudson Hospital Foundation have been moved by many different life experiences. These patients, volunteers and providers all find great value in giving back to their community.
When I think about why I give to the Hudson Hospital Foundation, my brain immediately goes to the Emergency Room expansion and mental health care commitments we’ve recently made. But as a volunteer at our hospital, I also have many stories that may not make the front page of the newspaper, yet are equally impactful to those we serve.
Having a well-funded foundation means being able to support our community’s graduating seniors with college scholarships to study for a career in health care. It means having the resources to coordinate rides home from the hospital for patients who need them. I’ve even watched a hospital employee collaborate with a veterinary clinic to arrange shelter for the pet of a patient who hadn’t planned on visiting the ER that evening.
One of the long-standing programs supported by the Foundation that affects my family directly is the sharps container and needle disposal program. I’m the mom of a child with type 1 diabetes. The logistics of coordinating doctor visits, insulin, glucose-monitoring system, pump supply purchases and more can feel like a full-time job. Not to mention this chronic disease can mount a $20,000 bill yearly for many families. The one thing we don’t have to worry about is sanitary needle disposal. I have our foundation to lean on for this.
While the Hudson Hospital Foundation works in both public and private ways, not a day goes by that someone in our community isn’t positively impacted by the gifts of our generous donors. I invite you to join me in supporting our Foundation.
As an oncology and infusion nurse at Hudson Hospital & Clinic since 2012, I know firsthand the challenges that many patients face when undergoing treatment. Some patients receive more than 500 hours of care, and some visits can last six hours or longer. Patients often express ideas about how their visits could be improved, and we give these ideas to the foundation. Seeing how the foundation turns patients’ ideas into reality is so rewarding.
I donate to the Infusion Center Fund through Hudson Hospital Foundation’s Employee Giving Campaign. The fund provides support for equipment to help patients receive the most comfortable care possible. We recently purchased reclining chairs with heated seats and backrests, as well as massage functions. Every cent of every donation to the foundation is used to benefit patients, the community and the hospital.
