Santiam Hospital and Clinics Foundation Receives $150,000 Grant from KeyBank
Grant will help improve access to health services with an expansion of the emergency department
STAYTON, Ore., December 7, 2023 /3BL/ - KeyBank has announced a grant of $150,000 to the Santiam Hospital And Clinics Foundation. The funds will help improve access to healthcare where patients live, work, and play through an expansion of the emergency department.
Ultimately, it will help realize the vision of a rural healthcare system model that is patient-centric and sustainable through funding a Community Health Worker (CHW), who will ensure patients are directed to primary care options that drive preventative care for the individual and/or family. The grant will also help provide wrap-around services that address issues beyond medical needs.
“KeyBank’s mission is to help its communities thrive, and the first step is ensuring that all of our neighbors have access to the healthcare and other supportive services they need,” said Josh Lyons, KeyBank’s Market President for Oregon and S.W. Washington and Commercial Banking leader. “We are pleased to help fund these vital measures that contribute to better health and quality of life.
“We are very grateful for the KeyBank grant in support of our Emergency Department expansion and its focus on improving healthcare for an important segment of our patient population,” said Eric K. Pritchard, Executive Director of Santiam Hospital & Clinics Foundation. “This grant gives Santiam Hospital and Clinics the ability to begin transitioning this patient group toward preventative care and provide funds that will make an immediate impact on their overall wellbeing.”
