The Albany General Hospital Foundation board of directors recently approved more than $534,000 in allocation requests for equipment, patient services and scholarships throughout Samaritan Albany General Hospital and its outlying facilities.
A total of 21 hospital departments, clinics and Samaritan facilities in Albany will receive funding as a result of proceeds from this year’s annual fundraising campaigns.
Funded requests include equipment, diabetes education, the Reach out and Read program, ArtsCare, Couch to 5K for adolescents, safe-sleep fall protection cribs, employee scholarships and patient support services, as well as medical, dental and mental health services for the underserved.
The requests were funded by community donors, as well as Samaritan employees who participate in the Samaritan Employee Caring Campaign, which raised more than $133,424 last fall. The foundation manages multiple funds, focused on different health care services, so donors can give toward a particular service if they wish.
