Helping our patients in emergencies

You helped a patient to be discharged to a clean, warm and healing environment when his house flooded while being cared for as an inpatient at Ascension Borgess Allegan Hospital.

Thank you for providing this patient with a safe place to heal! When his house flooded, the patient was not allowed to return home. He was in need of immediate home care post-discharge and had nowhere to stay. Your donation to the HOPE (Helping Our Patients in Emergencies) Fund provided him with a short stay at a nearby hotel while his house was made habitable again. You made a healing difference for a patient in need.

An Ascension Borgess Allegan Hospital patient received life-saving medications and testing supplies for his diabetes because of you—thank you!

Your donation to the Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation made it possible for this patient to receive the care he so desperately needed.

So many patients do not have the resources or health insurance needed to afford their diabetes care. Your donated dollars were used to cover the cost of point of care testing, diabetes medications, glucometer and test supplies, vaccines and the provider salary.

Thank you again for helping a patient in need!

Thank you for helping patients with essential needs after their discharge from the hospital

Your gift in support of the HOPE (Helping Our Patients in Emergencies) Fund helped patients in their recovery, making a difference when it was needed the most!

In the past year, your gifts provided gas cards for patients living in outlying areas who otherwise could not have afforded gas to make it home. Your donations also covered wheelchair-bound patients with transportation home and assisted patients in need of medical equipment that their insurance would not cover (e.g., oxygen, walkers, bedside commodes and certain medications).

The HOPE Fund at Ascension Borgess Allegan Hospital helps patients who are in need and supports our mission of Service to the Poor. As good stewards of your donations, all options are exhausted prior to using this fund. Patients who receive assistance have better health outcomes and are less likely to be readmitted to the hospital. Thank you again for helping in their recovery!

I’m writing to you today with an urgent need. Right now a patient is struggling with expenses after discharge from the hospital.

The need is great, especially when a patient has to make difficult choices with their immediate needs—providing food for their children, paying a utility bill or purchasing a prescription. The stress and complications from reduced hours at work or no work at all makes this situation even more dire.

Your donation to the HOPE Fund (Helping Our Patients in Emergencies) will help a patient after discharge with essential needs such as:

  • Prescription medications
  • Medical equipment (i.e. walker, commode chair, oxygen)
  • Gas for follow-up appointments
  • Food, electricity and more

Your gift of $25 will help one patient and a gift of $75 will help three patients.

Your gift will stay local and help a patient in your community. You will assist a patient who is struggling with costs associated with crucial needs after a hospital stay.
