On Health Care Week, many thanks to the donors who have supported our teams
“My kids are 8 and 10. Five years ago, they asked me if superheroes are real. I took them to ARRMC parking lot and pointed at the tower. Thank you.”
In honor of Health Care Week, Asante Foundation wants you to know how appreciated you are not only internally, but by our community. Over the past couple of years, the community has wrapped around Asante and its employees. This has been demonstrated in a number of ways, through philanthropy. When donors give to Asante, they give because of the tremendous and heroic work of our health care workers, and the impact they have on patients’ lives.
Over the past two years, nearly 150 donors gave in honor of an Asante employee or medical provider to support a number of Asante service lines and initiatives. The following individuals, entities and departments have been honored by donors, through their gifts:
