Patients in need of clothes at Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital are discharged with dignity! You made this possible—thank you!

Some patients do not have the means or the ability to obtain much-needed clothing upon discharge from the hospital. Your donation to the Clothing Closet fund helped purchase sweatpants, t-shirts, underwear, socks, shoes, hats and gloves for patients in need.

Expressions of gratitude for the clean, warm clothes were made by patients. Many were surprised to learn that the Clothing Closet is supported entirely through donations.

Thank you for helping a patient to be discharged from the hospital with dignity!

You helped patients, visitors and associates at Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield to be safe in a time of uncertainty! Thank you for making a difference!

Your support of needs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic made it possible for three thermal temperature cameras to be purchased.

Because of you, new thermal temperature cameras are now installed in the hospital’s main lobby, the Emergency department and at the Professional Medical Building.

Before the new thermal temperature cameras were installed, there was a long wait in line to be screened. The new process is efficient and has expedited the screening process. Patients, visitors and staff have expressed their satisfaction with the new cameras.

The new Pediatric Clinic at Ascension Providence Rochester Hospital is adorned with award-winning artwork because of you!

Your gift to the Nicholson Monarch Fund made the new artwork possible! The Pediatric Clinic, in partnership with the Paint Creek Center for the Arts, hosted an “Art for Kids” contest. The theme for the contest was “Feel Good!”

The first, second and third place winning art selections were enlarged, framed and now hang on the walls of the clinic. A 2022 calendar of the artwork was also created. All art submissions were used to create wall hangings for the clinic waiting room.

The “Art for Kids” project awarded scholarships for students recommended by their art teachers to attend the Paint Creek Center for the Arts summer arts program.

Every day, a first responder's life is on the line. A firefighter will enter a burning building to save a life. A police officer won’t hesitate to help save a life when faced with danger. An emergency medical technician (EMT) will rush to the scene of an accident to save a life.

I have great news! You can help reduce the stress a first responder lives with and possibly save their life.

Your gift of $60 today will provide a preventative heart screening to a first responder through the Ascension Mobile Health Center.

A preventative screening can identify pre-existing heart conditions that, if left untreated, could result in a heart attack or worse. Your gift of $60 today will help save a life! Please click here to make your lifesaving gift for a first responder today!
