ST. JOSEPH HOSPITAL RECEIVES MULTIPLE GRANTS IN EXCESS OF $235,000


11.16.2021

St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua, NH is pleased to share details of several recent grant awards in excess of $235,000 in support of a number of key projects throughout the healthcare organization that will benefit both patients and staff.

The Foundation for Healthy Communities, a state-wide organization working to improve health and healthcare through strategic and innovative partnerships, awarded the hospital $83,500 for a 22-month pilot program focused on treating patients with Substance Use Disorder (SUD). The initiative is a collaborative effort between clinical and care management staff and the Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire. The work includes training front-line healthcare providers to screen for, educate and establish follow-up care for potential Acquired or Traumatic Brain Injury patients (ABI/TBI) after a narcotic overdose. As part of the program, a cross-trained SUD/TBI counselor will engage both patients and family members to maximize patient outcomes

In August, the hospital was delighted to be awarded a $2,000 Community Grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation (via the Hudson, NH Sam’s Club) to be used towards the purchase of a much-needed new refrigerator for the Saint Marguerite d’Youville Employee Food Pantry. The Pantry, in operation since 2012, is open to hospital staff, volunteers and School of Nursing students, a community of approximately 1,500 individuals. The Food Pantry is staffed and funded 100% by employee donations, volunteers and community support. Each year, the Pantry distributes 12,000-15,000 lbs. of high-quality food and personal hygiene products to its hospital family in need without question, judgment or hesitation.

Fully funded at $150,000, the hospital learned of its successful grant applications to the competitive DHS/FEMA Nonprofit Security Grant program in September. These awards will enable the installation of new building access control and personal identification systems for both the primary care practice at 460 Amherst Street in Nashua and the hospital’s Milford (NH) Urgent Care site. Updating the current technology enhances security for both staff and patients through remote monitoring and increased access control at these critical care facilities.
