Thank you for your interest in the patients here at Little Company of Mary Hospital. New this year, the LCMH Foundation is proud to announce a giving program known as The LCM Wish List. The Wish List provides hospital departments with smaller scale items that make a tremendous impact on the patient's experience and time in the hospital.
Browse the Wish List below to discover ways you can make a gift to help meet some of the hospital’s urgent needs.
Mother Baby / Pediatrics / Special Care Unit Nursery:
Diaper Scales measure the output of neonatal babies to assess and monitor their hemodynamic stability during the most critical time of early development. Currently, there are a limited quantity. By adding 20 diaper scales, all rooms would be equipped with their own scale for ease of accessibility by staff serving infant patients.
Sleeper Recliners for our pediatric patients and their families so that they find comfort together while their child is recovering from an illness. The goal is to replace the one's that exist and have been used prior to campus renovations in the 7 pediatric rooms.
The Mother/Baby and Special Care Unit patient rooms are in need of Mini Refrigerators so that all families can bring in outside meals for their stay during postpartum recovery in consideration of cultural traditions. They currently are not available in any of the 27 recovery rooms.
Discharge Transportation for patients leaving the emergency department with lack of resources or family support. Approximately 240 cab fares are needed annually.
In partnership with Catholic Charities, LCMH employees offer their time by volunteering and serving Meals to the Homeless every month of the year. Each month, $350 is needed to prepare supper and provide necessary accommodations to serve approximately 100 individuals in the St. Christopher cafeteria.
Every year, LCMH Physicians and Employees volunteer their time to serve on Medical Missions in our own country and throughout the world. Little Company of Mary Hospital provides scholarships to offset medical supply expenses and travel costs to support employee’s humanitarian efforts in this endeavor.
