St. Rose Hospital gives back to the community
Submitted By Gloria Lara
Every year during the holiday season, St. Rose Hospital is proud to partner with the Angel Tree Program and The Salvation Army on various community service projects.
The Angel Tree Program gathers wish lists from local children and teenagers, and this year, St. Rose Hospital doctors and staff donated to more than 100 families in the community to ensure parents would be able to provide new clothes and toys for their children at Christmas.
Also in the spirit of giving, St. Rose Hospital Nurse Leadership partnered with the Hayward Rotary Club along with the Hayward Fire Department to collect new and clean socks for RubyÕs Place and Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency (BOSS), both local non-profit shelters in the Hayward area.
Every day, the hospitalÕs emergency department serves patients wearing the same pair of socks they had on when leaving the hospital. The lack of clean socks contributes to the growing number of foot and leg wounds medical personnel see every day. Nurse Leadership works collaboratively to help improve patient outcomes and continue to strive to provide quality health care to the community with respect, compassion and professionalism.
We are glad to be able to spread holiday cheer to make the season brighter for all in our community. Thank you to everyone that participated!
