The Health Care Foundation has awarded $48,877 worth of grants to Eastern Health staff members at 26 hospital units in its five adult facilities as part of its Comfort in Care program. The Comfort in Care program provides funding for items which enhance patient care and well-being.
Paul Snow, CEO and president of the foundation, said Eastern Health employees from any of the five adult hospitals in the St. John’s region can access Comfort in Care funding through a grant application process.
“This program is important to the Foundation,” Snow said. “It’s outside of our other funding areas of capital equipment, education and research, it enables the purchase of smaller items; blanket warmers, TVs, wheelchairs, etc. Items that make a big difference to patients and their families during their hospital stay.”
This was the tenth round of Comfort in Care grants. This round was funded through foundation’s major donor, Johnson and the Gary Rowe Memorial Comfort In Care fund. Donations are also received from individual donors who give to the program. — Submitted photo
