Please Donate to Support Hospital Heroes Affected by Hurricane Ida – All Event Proceeds & Donations go to the Louisiana Care Fund:
The impact of Hurricane Ida has been devastating for many hospital heroes in Louisiana who experienced significant property loss or personal hardship but continued to care for patients before, during, and after the storm. In an effort to provide some relief, the Louisiana Hospital Association Research and Education Foundation has established the Louisiana Care Fund to help hospital employees begin to rebuild and recover from the hurricane. When our hospital family hurts, the healthcare community, our business partners, and the public have historically pulled together to make a difference.
Tonight, hear from Phyllis Peoples, CEO at Terrebonne General Medical Center in Houma, Louisiana. Houma was heavily damaged from Hurricane Ida at the end of September as a powerful Category 4 Hurricane, 16 years after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. We will hear from Phyllis and a few of her staff on the preparations, the storm and the aftermath and recovery – which is continuing today. Join us for this account, and help support your brethren in Louisiana that have been affected by this force of nature.
