At its monthly board meeting on January 30, 2014, the board of commissioners for the Kennewick Public Hospital were presented a check of $398,570 by the Trios Foundation. The funds represented fundraising efforts from 2013. The funds were used to pay for: pediatric sleeper beds; infusion chairs; three free mammogram screenings for more than 150 underinsured or uninsured women; a heel scanner (bone density test) for community events; and video game consoles for Pediatrics. Funds were also allocated to support: the oncology/hematology patient support fund; scholarship awards; musical healing program, and Good Samaritan Program.
The Trios Foundation enhances patient care through fundraising that enables new programs and services, and brings new equipment to Trios Health.
