Hawaii Pacific Health employees have generously donated their own money to help patients and the community. The 2016 Hawaii Pacific Health Employee Giving Campaign (EGC) drew a record $944,900. The money was raised over a one-month period through personal gifts and pledges, and was the most successful Employee Giving Campaign to-date for Hawaii Pacific Health.
These donations were mainly directed to the Patient Emergency Assistance Funds. These funds are used for out-of-pocket needs that can devastate individuals or families when a medical crisis arises. Patients in critical need of medication, medical equipment, transportation and everyday necessities for healing are supported by the funds listed below.
Family Fund, Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children
Ohana Fund, Pali Momi Medical Center
Kokua Fund, Straub Medical Center
Patient Assistance Fund, Wilcox Medical Center
Another part of Hawaii Pacific Health’s EGC fundraising efforts includes the support of the Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network. Money donated to this fund provides support for direct patient care, specialized medical equipment, emergency transport and preventive education for patients and their families.
