The Cherokee, Clay, Graham (CCG) Health Foundation recently donated $40 thousand to Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital (EWCH).
The donation to EWCH is the product of several fundraising efforts and events as well as individual donations from the western North Carolina community, local businesses, high school students and EWCH employees.
“The CCG Foundation has donated funds to help support this facility for many years,” said Chairman of the CCG Board Andrew Reichman. “We’ve even taken it a step further by employing a grant writer to apply for funds we hope to use for capital and equipment and facility improvements. As a standalone community foundation, the CCG Foundation is committed to serving the healthcare needs of Cherokee, Clay and Graham counties.”
EWCH will use the funds to purchase five automated external defibrillators (AED), a flexible fiber-optic ureteral scope for surgical procedures, a urine analyzer for the lab, a treadmill for the cardiac rehab department and a mobile computer workstation.
“We’re so grateful to the CCG Foundation for this donation,” said EWCH Vice President and CEO Stephanie Boynton. “Funds like these help us further our mission of compassionately caring for people. Both our staff and patients will benefit from the items we are able to purchase due to the generosity and kindness of the communities we serve.”
