A Year of Impact

A Year of Impact

Liberty Hospital Foundation programs assisted 5,629 patients and community members in FY 2022 (July 1, 2021-June 30, 2022). Services ranged from Hospitality House stays, Scholarships, Bereavement Support, Student Assistance, Sports Physicals, Medication Needs, Durable Medical Equipment, Women’s Imaging and Transportation.

In the past 12 months alone, the Student Assistance program provided Urgent Care needs and Sports Physicals to 135 students – a year over year increase of 109 students.

Foundation programs such as these would not be successful without the help of the Care Management Team. This past year has been extremely challenging with the ongoing pandemic, but with your support we have been able to positively impact patients across the care continuum.

We are looking forward to the next 12 months to continue our mission of improving the health and wellness of Liberty Hospital patients and community.

Please take a few moments to read just how your gifts have helped so many in the Liberty Hospital community.  Thank you for making a difference!
