Medical University Hospital Authority (MUHA) employees have a chance to under take projects that will benefit patients and advance the medical center's mission. Established in 2011, MUHA's Giving Back Program was created to manage monetary gifts presented to the hospital by patients and families.
Giving Back Program chairman Terry Wilson, Pastoral Care Services director, encourages hospital employees to apply for this special funding.
"It is touching to know that these funds were given by patients and families from their grateful spirits for the care they received while at MUSC. I can't think of a stronger endorsement of our staff and their delivery of health care in this place of healing, teaching and research," Wilson said.
Funds will be available through $2,500 grant awards and must be used for projects that impact or improve the medical center's mission. Grants will be awarded to individuals for projects that meet the program's criteria or work-related need such as employee training, travel, equipment, patient education materials, software or system, etc. The deadline to submit completed application is Nov. 15. Awards will be announced by Dec. 14.
