Grant will fund facility upgrades to ensure best possible care
HAYWARD, Calif., November 21, 2013 - St. Rose Hospital, a nonprofit health care organization serving the East Bay community, will soon begin facility upgrades to improve care for the thousands of Alameda County residents it serves each year. The work is made possible thanks to Fremont Bank Foundation, which recently contributed a $75,000 grant for the improvements.
“We are thrilled to receive this grant and grateful to Fremont Bank Foundation for its generous support of our work,” said Michael Cobb, executive director of St. Rose Hospital Foundation. “Because we are a nonprofit and an independent hospital, grants like this are needed so that we can continue offering excellent, cost-effective care to all of our patients.”
St. Rose Hospital Foundation will use the grant to make critical facility and technological upgrades that will improve security at the hospital and enable doctors and nurses to care for patients more efficiently.
“St. Rose Hospital is an outstanding health care provider serving all residents in need regardless of income or insurance status,” said Marie-Pascale Peterson, director of community outreach at Fremont Bank. “The bank prioritizes partnerships with organizations like St. Rose Hospital that care for people often lacking access to important health and human services. We are proud to partner in the hospital’s much-needed work and look forward to its continued success.”
Fremont Bank Foundation has strongly supported St. Rose Hospital Foundation for more than a decade.
