Wisconsin Hospitals Benefit from Work of the WHA Foundation

Remember the WHA Foundation during the season of giving

November 06, 2018

The months of November and December are often referred to as the season of giving, which makes it the ideal time for the WHA Foundation to kick off its annual giving campaign. Each year, the WHA Foundation supports a variety of initiatives that have a statewide impact on health care in the areas of quality improvement, workforce development, and community collaboration. 

In 2018, nearly 60 Wisconsin hospitals benefitted from support of the WHA Foundation. Was your hospital one of them?

In the course of hiring new employees in 2018, did your hospital hire a WHA Foundation Scholarship recipient? There were more than 30 scholarships awarded this year to students now working in health care in Wisconsin, and more than 400 in total since the program began 15 years ago. Chances are, you employ at least one of them.

Did a team of clinicians from your hospital participate in simulation training focused on better identifying sepsis or stroke symptoms in patients, or reacting to a high-risk birth scenario? Thanks to funding and coordination by the WHA Foundation, this annual program has allowed nearly 60 teams to improve their practice in a safe and controlled environment during the past three years. Chances are, one of your teams participated.

To continue supporting these types of initiatives in 2019, the WHA Foundation is asking for your support through its annual giving campaign. Contributions from WHA hospital and corporate members will be used to continue some of its most successful initiatives and give the Foundation the opportunity to consider new initiatives for funding in 2019.

Information about how to make your contribution can be found here. For questions about the WHA Foundation’s 2018 giving campaign, contact Jennifer Frank at 6058-274-1820.
