donation directly impacts hundreds of people.
Robinson Visiting Nurse and Hospice
While most care is generally reimbursed through Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance, a great deal of care is provided above and beyond reimbursement. In addition there are a growing number of patients not covered by any insurance. The Foundation provides more than $150,000 annually to help cover the highest quality, compassionate care to individuals and their families. Contributions help pay for specialized medical equipment, medications, therapies and bereavement services that are not covered but are provided by our home care and hospice team.
Thousands of women in the county go without potentially life-saving mammograms, many due to cost concerns. Nearly 2,000 women have received mammograms due to the generosity of donors to the Maxine Lyman Mammography Fund.
Diabetes Care and Education
More than 1,000 individuals have experienced a happier and healthier life due to the Robinson Memorial Hospital Diabetes Care and Education Center, which provides patients with information regarding control of high and low blood sugars, diabetes medication and home monitoring. Other lifestyle goals and frequent evaluations of progress are provided by highly trained diabetes health educators. The Maxine Lyman Diabetes Scholarship Fund has been made available to patients with a demonstrated inability to pay.
The Robinson Memorial Hospital Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program has assisted thousands of people annually with cardiac (heart) and pulmonary (lung) rehabilitation. Many insurance companies do not cover the ongoing exercise and education maintenance programs for patients. The Robinson Memorial Hospital Foundation helps these patients in need.
A variety of funds have been established to assist nurses and other health care professionals expand their expertise and education. The Foundation annually provides nearly $50,000 for scholarships to support our employees' provision of excellent care to patients.
