New grant from Chemical Bank supports Oaklawn’s Charity Care Program
MARSHALL – Chemical Bank recently awarded a new $2,000 grant to support Oaklawn’s ongoing Charity Care Program.
Gregg Beeg, Oaklawn’s interim president and CEO, and Richard Lindsey, Oaklawn’s Executive Director of Legal and Community Affairs, expressed gratitude to Chemical Bank and its local personnel for its ongoing financial support over several years.
“Oaklawn created its Charity Care Program to help care to those in need through financial assistance – people who otherwise could not afford to be treated,” Lindsey said. “The program broadens access to health care for uninsured and low-income patients.”
“Chemical Bank’s goal is to actively participate in the communities where we live, work and play,” said Diane Ramirez, Community Bank President for Chemical Bank. “Our commitment to the communities we serve is demonstrated through the financial support we give to local organizations and volunteer efforts.”
Oaklawn offers patients financial assistance in the form of discounts up to 100 percent of the amount owed. Eligibility is based on income as well as other criteria.
“We at Oaklawn are always aware that our health-care organization began in 1912 as the Ella E. M. Brown Charitable Circle, which is still the legal name of Oaklawn Hospital today,” Lindsey said.
“As always, our mission is to provide personal, accessible, and high-quality care to improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve, including those who otherwise might not be served,” Lindsey added. “Chemical Bank’s generous assistance helps us to fulfill that mission.”
