Foundation grants Community Home Health & Hospice $50k


In June, The Health Care Foundation awarded Community Home Health & Hospice with a $50,000 grant. The gift was a matching grant, meaning Community first raised $50,000, in part from individual donations and the Friends of Hospice Southwest Washington nonprofit.

Of the $100,000 raised altogether, $52,000 covered the charity care needs of dying veterans in the Longview Hospice Care Center. The remaining $48,000 provided for new beds in all 12 rooms of the Longview Hospice Care Center along with a number of other equipment upgrades.

The new beds come at a critical time. The company who supplied Community’s previous fleet of beds had since gone out of business, meaning there were no longer parts available for repair.

“The important role Community Home Health & Hospice plays in the lives of the most vulnerable among us has been highlighted even more during this pandemic,” said Max Anderson, a THCF board member since 2016. “The foundation is honored to help them continue providing comfort and care during these difficult times.”

“New medical equipment goes a long way in keeping our patients comfortable and safe,” said Greg Pang, President and CEO of Community. “A huge thanks to The Health Care Foundation and all of the donors who made this possible.”
