KUDOS: Promoting positives in our community
GRANT FOR NICU. Hardin Memorial Health and the HMH Foundation recently learned some good news: The hospital is the recipient of a $50,000 grant from the Brave Beginnings program of the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation.
The grant will be used to secure a central cardiorespiratory monitoring system for HMH’s Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which is the only such fully operational facility in the region.
“Brave Beginnings believes that every child deserves a fighting chance, and we know that babies in Central Kentucky are thriving close to home thanks to the HMH NICU,” said Todd Vradenburg, executive director of the Rogers Pioneer Foundation. “We are proud to help equip them with critical technology … that lessens trauma and keeps babies more comfortable.”
During the 18 months, HMH and the HMH Foundation have raised more than $500,000 to support the Level II NICU.
This success is the result of solid planning and implementation of strategies to establish and sustain a quality medical center for area residents.
HMH officials, as well as the volunteer members of the HMH Foundation, should be thanked and commended for the vision, focus and effective leadership that has created this wonderful healthcare resource.
