Hotel Dieu We Walk for Your Comfort & Care - Oct 1

Saturday, October 1, 2016 - 9:00am to 1:00pm

On Saturday, October 1, Hotel Dieu employees will be participating in the 2nd Annual “We Walk for Your Comfort and Care” event, an exciting opportunity for staff, their families and friends to raise funds for the comfort and care of our patients while also enjoying a fun and active day together. Our teams HDH Team Dynamite & HDH Minds in Motion!

The Comfort Fund at Hotel Dieu is used to support patients with financial needs when no other funding source is available to them. In the past, for example, it has purchased a walker for an elderly gentleman who came to us for a hip replacement but could not afford the walker that was crucial to his full recovery. And it has been used to support transportation to crucial hospital appointments when no other means were available. The Comfort Fund is an important and necessary part of providing care and comfort to those patients with financial constraints.
