Assistance provided through the Care Line can be in the form of prescription medicine, clothing, meals, transportation, temporary lodging and durable medical equipment.
The Care Line helps Stormont-Vail patients with health care needs which:
The Care Line is funded through charitable gifts from a public campaign and an employee giving campaign.
The 13th annual “Friends of the Care Line” public campaign will kick off in February 2014, raising money for the Care Line Endowment.
Donors making gifts of $1,000 or more in support of the Care Line are recognized on a scroll prominently displayed in the Registration area at Stormont-Vail HealthCare. For more information or to make a donation, contact the Foundation at (785) 354-6851.
The Employee Giving campaign will be held throughout the month of September. Many Stormont-Vail employees utilize Care Line funds to help their patients in need, so they understand the importance of giving financial support to the Care Line. Employees are encouraged to donate through payroll deduction in support of important hospital programs and services, including the Care Line.
