Crouse receives $10K from Boeheim Foundation

Crouse Health Foundation has received a grant of $10,000 from the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation to help support some of the costs of keeping areas safe and protected from COVID-19, specifically in the hospital’s Kienzle Family Maternity Center and Baker Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Increased costs during the pandemic include personal protective equipment for staff, patients and visitors and creating negative pressure rooms to keep Crouse’s maternity patients and their babies safe.

“Over the years, we have partnered with the Boeheim Foundation on a number of initiatives, and are especially honored to receive this latest grant, which recognizes the work of Crouse Health staff and supports their efforts to care for babies and families during this public health crisis,” says Kimberly Boynton, president and CEO of Crouse Health.

With the Boeheim grant, Crouse Health’s COVID-19 emergency response fund has generated more than $160,000 to support staff in their efforts to keep the hospital and the community safe during the pandemic through the purchase of PPE and other items.
