January 01, 2010
January 1, 2020 - Las Vegas, NV – HCA, Hospital Corporation of America, the parent company of the Sunrise Health hospitals – Sunrise Hospital, Sunrise Children’s Hospital, MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital ‐‐said Tuesday it is mobilizing $1 million in supplies and cash assistance to Haiti relief efforts.
HCA is coordinating medical supply donations from its facilities across the country through its East Florida division and partnering with Food for the Poor, a South Florida relief organization, to identify available supplies in HCA’s warehouses that are most appropriate for immediate needs.
Because relief agencies are advising that cash and supplies are currently more helpful than volunteers, HCA said, it is matching employee contributions to the HCA Haiti Relief Fund.
Donations through the fund will be directed to the Red Cross and to Doctors Without Borders.
HCA’s employee assistance program, “The Hope Fund,” is also reaching out to provide help to employees who have family members who may have been directly affected by the tragedy.
As security is established in Haiti, the hospitals will work with employees who wish to take leave to volunteer on medical and other relief missions.
