Samaritan Foundations and Central Willamette Credit Union have joined together promoting a new debit card in which a percentage of each transaction is donated to the Patient Support Program.
With the Samaritan Affinity Card, credit union members can help provide additional funding to support the Samaritan Foundations Patient Support Program. The donation per transaction is provided by CWCU.
“CWCU has long supported the Samaritan Foundations to ensure that the communities we serve have access to the best health care available,” said Stacie Wyss-Schoenborn, President/CEO of CWCU. “This partnership with Samaritan Foundations is yet another extension of that long-term commitment. Every debit card swipe means we help more people every day.”
Samaritan’s Patient Support Program provides funding assistance for patients in need to promote equal access to care and facilitate safe hospital discharge. Currently, nearly 1,000 people throughout Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties are receiving assistance with expenses such as medical bills, transportation, prescriptions, nutritional supplements and groceries through the program.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to build healthier communities together by reducing and eliminating barriers to health care that impact our neighbors throughout our three-county region,” said Taylor Gilmour, vice president, Samaritan Foundations. “The five Samaritan Foundations are grateful for CWCU’s continued partnership and this innovative new offering.”
