New Foundation Fund Focuses on Taking Care of Those Who Take Care of Others

Delivering compassionate care in our Franciscan tradition is the heart of what Franciscan Health employees do every day. Whether it’s an uplifting conversation while delivering a first meal after a major surgery, making sure a patient’s room is clean and comfortable or holding the hand of someone in their time of need, our employees are dedicated to care in any way that is needed.

Unfortunately, in focusing on care for others, our employees can sometimes fail to adequately care for their own mental, emotional, spiritual and physical needs.

That’s why the Franciscan Health Foundation has established the Employee Wellbeing Fund. With this new fund, we will provide outlets for employees to manage and overcome signs of burnout, improve care delivery and supply opportunities for mental escapes encouraging mindfulness, creativity and fun.

The Employee Wellbeing Fund is designed to reinvigorate the hearts of our employees whenever there is a need. Your gift is more than just appreciation for their skills and talents while at work. It also shows them you care about their wellbeing while they’re not at work, too. Because healthy people will foster more healthy people in our communities.

Together, we can support our employees' physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. You can donate to the Employee Wellbeing Fund at this LINK.
