Asante Ashland Gift Shop Gives Back

The Asante Ashland Volunteer Program recently awarded the Ashland Community Hospital Foundation with a donation of $9,650. The gift represents profits from the Asante Ashland Gift Shop from the 2019 fiscal year, which ended in September. Gift Shop volunteers include Kathy Fraser, Joan Hedges, Susan Rosenlund, and Lyn Ruiz.

After careful consideration they chose to direct the donation to two priority areas. The first is the Resiliency Program, which supports specialized training for staff and physicians to learn about trauma-informed care. Additionally updates to the Intensive Care Unit to create a more calming and comforting environment for patients experiencing heightened levels of emotional or psychological stress.

The second program to benefit from Gift Shop proceeds is the School Nurse Program of Asante Ashland, which provides nurses in all K-12 school in Ashland, Talent and Phoenix.

Thank you to our Gift Shop volunteers and to all of you for shopping in our hospital’s gift shop.
