Sometimes old adages can be true – “Ask and you shall receive.” Our Psychological Medicine office has noticed an increase in child and adolescent patients. Dr. Andrews, Susan Rood, Karrie Williams and Jeff Clearwater are working hard to address the needs of this often underserved population. However, we have very few “play therapy” items which are a very important part of engaging a young mind.
As a team, we approached the AGH Foundation about this need and requested financial support. From that conversation Susan Rood, LMSW, wrote a grant request, which was quickly approved by our Hospital Foundation. The entire staff is very appreciative of the generous gift of $1,000 we received from the Foundation for play therapy items.
We are committed to offering the best behavioral health services possible and are proud to be part of the AGH family. Once again, the AGH Foundation demonstrates an altruistic and genuine belief in all aspects of Hospital life. Hospital Foundation, thank you so much for the support!
