As we look back on another year, we are thankful for friends who helped us transform healthcare in our communuity.
- Friends of Nursing provided nearly a dozen staff members with scholarships and fellowships that allowed them to further their professional development.
- Thanks to a generous donor, we established a certification program in partnership with the UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics, to provide advanced informatics education and training to healthcare professionals in our system, allowing them to better use data from our electronic health record (EHR) system to improve health outcomes and reduce costs. The first class of 30 students begin their training in the new year.
- Guardian Angel donors helped nearly a dozen patients access vital care they might have otherwise been unable to receive, like a grandfather who lives on Social Security and couldn't afford his prostate cancer treatment. He received radiation therapy at our state-of-the-art Kirby Glen treatment center and is able to spend the holidays with his family.
- And CHI St. Luke's Health was able to expand the reach of its specialists into underserved areas through Project ECHO - a telementoring program created with the help of donors like you.
With your help today, we can do more in 2016.
