Impact of Donor Gifts
The impact of donor gifts enhances the quality of health care for patients in your community.
Over the past 20 years, thanks to support of many donors, the Foundation has been able to help purchase many enhancements in medical equipment and patient care services, from digital mammography and new cardiac monitors to a Hydro-Worz aquatic therapy pool. The impact of giving to WCH Foundation is significant in the lives of people who come to WCH for healing and care.
