MUNSON HEALTHCARE CHARLEVOIX HOSPITAL RECEIVES GENEROUS GRANT
Munson Healthcare Charlevoix Hospital recently received a grant from the Charlevoix County Community Foundation in the amount of $10,000 to help finance the hospital's Patient Needs Fund. This important fund is available to help cover often urgent and expensive needs for patients or other persons involved in their care during a health-related crisis and provides welcome and unexpected relief for our patients and their families when they need it most.
Often, when undergoing a health-related crisis, patients are unable to work. They are told to rest and recover, but that can seem impossible when there are bills to pay. In addition, family members and/or caregivers are also called upon to help with expenses, transportation, and child care, placing a further strain on the patient's family situation. More
