Established one year ago, the Passavant Foundation works to expand donor engagement and demonstrate how philanthropy plays a key role in providing quality healthcare at Passavant Hospital.
Unrestricted gifts for “Greatest Need” in 2013 totaled $145,000 and were applied toward the purchase of a new CT scanner in the Emergency Department. Other designated gifts funded important programs and departments such as Cardiac Rehab, ICCU, Wound Center, Lifeline, Chaplain’s Fund, and nursing scholarships.
