Thompson Health

  • Charitable giving supported Thompson’s Healthcare Education Fund—a top initiative for the health system. This fund sponsors stipends for students while they are in school—allowing them to work part-time while attending school full-time. The stipends provide financial assistance for lost wages, childcare and/or transportation, and help eliminate barriers to skilled employment for low-income individuals, providing them with the skills necessary to lift them out of poverty.
  • Donor support helped fund equipment like stretchers for the emergency department, exercise machines for cardiac patients, and pulse oximeters for pulmonary patients. Funding supported recreational opportunities for residents in the Continuing Care Center and stocked the emergency clothing closet for those ready for discharging, but do not have suitable clothing.
