Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center awarded $110,464 to 12 Glendale organizations. Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital awarded grants to organizations partnering together to respond to needs identified in the hospital’s most recent Community Health Needs Assessment that included obesity, mental health, diabetes, alcohol and substance abuse, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and cholesterol.

The four groups of partnering agencies who were awarded funds include Ascencia, Corporation for Supportive Housing, and Northeast Valley Health Corporation; Glendale Healthy Kids, Glendale Community Free Clinic and Walk Bike Glendale; Glendale Parks and Open Space Foundation, Glendale Community Services, & Parks Dept., and Glendale Unified School District; and Wellness Works, YWCA Glendale and Trauma Resource Institute.

“We are so impressed by the accomplishments of our community agency neighbors, and we are honored to support their efforts, which reflect our Dignity Health mission to partner with others in the community to improve the quality of life,” said Rev. Cassie McCarty, director of Mission Integration and Spiritual Care Services for Glendale Memorial Hospital.

The Community Grants Program is funded by contributions from Dignity Health member hospitals and supports Glendale Memorial Hospital in its mission to provide compassionate, high quality and affordable health services.

On Jan. 22, Glendale Memorial Hospital will invite the partnering agencies to accept their grant award at a luncheon hosted to celebrate their efforts. The luncheon will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the John Stauffer Auditorium on the hospital campus.
