Gifts help us fund new programs, offer new services and pay for new equipment to improve medical outcomes and enhance the experience of our patients.
Associate Annual Appeal
Our employees donate and then departments can request funds for items to help make our patients more comfortable. Allocation is managed by an employee committee. The funds are matched by Signature Healthcare Corporation and put into an Employee Relief Fund.
In 2016, with the help of 241 associates, we raised just over $34,000. We purchased 50 plush blankets to comfort our terminally ill cancer patients, 2 walkers to help steady patients while getting x-rays in radiology departments, 2 lab chairs (1 at hospital and 1 at Easton location), 4 umbrellas for Transport to attach to wheelchairs while assisting patients to their cars, new recumbent bike for rehab services in Raynham, a baby changing table for the lactation consultant office and a treatment table for Rehab at 130 Quincy Ave.
With the Employee Relief Program matched by the Signature Healthcare Corporation, 17 associates and their families were helped this year with house fires, loss of loved ones, and major health issues.
The Signature Healthcare "Donor Wall" in the lobby of the hospital displays the names of all donors who have given $50 or more during the prior calendar year. We would like to thank all contributors for their donations.
