LHA establishes fund for hospital workers affected by flooding

93

In response to devastating flooding, the Louisiana Hospital Association (LHA) Research and Education Foundation has established a fund to provide support for hospital employees and their families who have been impacted. SDAHO and our staff will make contributions to the fund and invite the South Dakota health care community to join in the effort.

The LHA estimates that more than 5,000 hospital employees suffered significant property damage to their homes. Hospitals in the region will share the names of employees (FT/PT) who live in one of the FEMA-designated disaster parishes and have suffered significant property loss to their home/residence.

We are honored to join with the LHA in this effort. Please consider making a contribution today. Contributions can be made to the Louisiana Hospital Employee Assistance Fund, and a handbook is available for download here.
