GRANT: School Telehealth

Telehealth uses technology to deliver care at a distance. Essentially, a child will have a 'virtual office visit' with a provider via a secure and confidential channel using computer cameras, telehealth equipment and speakers.

GRANT: Hope Fund

In 2019, the Hope Fund was created to relieve financial burdens of cancer patients in need. Examples include indirect costs associated with needing cancer treatment, like utilities, transportation, food or caregiving.

GRANT: Safe Haven Baby Box

In part to a grant from the Foundation, the hospital recently installed a Safe Haven Baby Box which allows a mother to safely, securely and anonymously surrender her newborn if she’s unable to provide care. Funded by the William A. & Martha H. Hillenbrand Foundation, the Baby Box has been installed on the exterior wall of the hospital which faces Mitchell Avenue.

Grateful Patient

Maybe it was a smile, kind word or gesture which brought you or your loved one comfort. At MMH, patients often ask if there is a way for them to recognize caregivers who provided exceptional care during their stay. Through our Grateful Patient program, we invite you to make a monetary donation to the Health Foundation in your caregiver's name.

Why do I donate?

The Wiggermans

When Susan’s water broke, she and her husband, Neal Wiggerman, thought they were about to meet their baby girl. Unfortunately, little Joanna had other plans. After almost 24 hours in labor and little progress, Susan’s physician was left with little choice but to perform a C-section. Just 30 minutes after the decision was made, Joanna was born at 8:07 a.m. on January 30. 

“The care we received was amazing every step of the way,” says Susan. “A lot of people don’t have the luxury of having a great hospital in their backyard. If you want to have a place like Margaret Mary Health in your community, you have to support it, which is why we give to the Health Foundation.”
