Intermountain Healthcare is offering support to the victims of Hurricane Harvey through a $200,000 donation to the Texas Hospital Association (THA) Employee Assistance Fund. These funds provide disaster relief for healthcare workers who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The contribution includes individual gifts from more than 650 Intermountain caregivers who stepped up to help personally.
“Our caregivers go above and beyond every day to provide healing, comfort, and compassion to those who come to us when sick or injured,” says Marc Harrison, MD, President and CEO, Intermountain Healthcare. “Their willingness to reach out to their colleagues in Texas speaks to the humanitarian spirit of our team members throughout Intermountain.”
The needs of those left in the wake of recent extreme floods and storms are extensive, and Intermountain Healthcare encourages everyone to give assistance in whatever way they can.
“We are pleased to direct our gift to our fellow caregivers in Texas,” adds Harrison. “We want them to know that we stand by them in their hour of need, knowing they are giving help and support to those who depend on them.”
