Charitable Community Partners
We are thankful for a number of benevolent community partners, many of which organize some of the city’s most successful charitable events. Over the years, these organizations have helped raise millions of dollars to fund care for patients and their families.
In 2012, Gifts from Partner Organizations Totaled More Than $1,439,000
- Community Health Resource Center: A CPMC affiliate, the CHRC provides comprehensive health information, nutrition services, and social services counseling to the community at little or no cost.
- The Guild of CPMC: Funds awarded by the all-volunteer CPMC Guild support hospital equipment and patient programs. Programs that recently benefitted from the Guilds' efforts include the Stroke Telemedicine Program, the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Rehabilitation and others.
- Lions Eye Foundation: This group helps fund a variety of eye and vision care services, including eye clinic expenses, complicated surgical procedures, and the purchase of critically needed eye equipment.
