Our Grants

As a supporting foundation, Reid Foundation makes grants only to Reid Health. From community services and charity care to equipment, we are able to make a difference in the health of our community only through the generous philanthropy of our donors. During its history, Reid Foundation has granted an aggregate of $86.3 million to Reid Health.

Cancer Navigators

A cancer diagnosis is often overwhelming. Patients and their family members are suddenly faced with important decisions while coping with new emotions. Reid Hospital Foundation is pleased to partner with Reid Cancer Center to provide patient navigators to assist with appointments and introductions and answer questions.

Community AED Program

With the help of donors, Reid Foundation purchased and distributed 291 Automated Electronic Defibrillators (AEDs) in 2011 and 2012. Seventy-five were donated to area school systems where people, young and old, gather each day.

Community Benefit Mammogram Program

Reid sees approximately 85 patients per year with breast cancer. Some of these patients, like Ellen, find the cancer themselves through self-examination without the assistance of a digital mammogram. For others, however, constraints have made that choice for them as regular exams are not affordable.

Free High School Athletic Trainers

Reid Hospital Foundation supports area high schools through Reid's athletic training program. Schools that choose to participate, each receive a free full-time athletic trainer to work with their student athletes on strength, agility, and limited rehabilitation following an injury.

Hospice

Reid Hospice serves many families just like the Wellers. A team of nurses, volunteers and a chaplain are available to ensure comfort for the patient and family. The care brings compassion and dignity in the final days of life.

Mother Baby Care - Be Our Guest

Reid Foundation is pleased to support the program that provided Leslie Walther with a complimentary room during her premature baby's hospital stay. We understand that special circumstances sometimes call for extra-special care. At times, parents or family members need to be near their child on the Mother/Baby floor.

STOP Program

STOP is a physician-referred 12-week weight management program for children and adolescents ages 7-17. The purpose of STOP is to improve the physical and emotional health of the entire family. By learning more about eating right, exercising and choosing healthy lifestyle habits, children and adolescents can reach their weight management goals.

Where the Need is Greatest

Reid Foundation supports many needs throughout the hospital and community. The Where the need is greatest fund allows our board of directors to review all needs and allocate donations as appropriate.
