$51,000 granted to improve hospital's birthing center | Events
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - IMPACT Lourdes has granted $51,000 to Lourdes’ Little Miracles Birthing Center.
The hospital says the gift will further their efforts to provide a comfortable, home-like environment for new moms, babies and families.
Eight private suites will receive new decor, wall finishes and upgraded fixtures to enhance the experience of families as they welcome a new baby into their lives.
“Each delivery experience is unique for that new mom and family,” said Aimee Thompson, Manager of Maternal Child Unit. “It is our focus to ensure every patient feels special and their needs are met. Patients will feel more at home in the fresh, new rooms. This gift will help us deliver special care to our patients, improving their patient experience.”
IMPACT Lourdes is a special group designed for passionate, philanthropic women who pledge $1,000 over the course of a year. This year, IMPACT Lourdes introduced a Junior Membership, a pledge of $500 for women under age 40. The membership will, in essence, make grants to the hospital through Lourdes Foundation. Members have a voice in selecting vital Lourdes projects which will receive funding from IMPACT Lourdes each year.
“IMPACT Lourdes is an opportunity for dedicated, generous women of our community to have a material collective impact on one of the most basic needs that we all have—quality, accessible healthcare,” said Tara Miller, VP and Chief Philanthropy Officer. “We are humbled by our IMPACT Lourdes members.”
