Lakeview Regional Medical Center is a Proud Member of HCA
By now you have heard about the disastrous flooding that has hit many Louisiana communities. In our own HCA family, some 50 families have lost their homes to the rising waters, and another 103 families have sustained significant property damage.
With so many of our people impacted, we are working with our MidAmerica Division team to help our colleagues stay safe and to assist them with any personal challenges resulting from this situation. We have activated disaster relief through the HCA Hope Fund, and our team at Corporate is working with our human resources team in Louisiana to get funds, as quickly as possible, to those in need. If you would like to assist in helping our colleagues through the Hope Fund, you can contribute now and take advantage of our existing Hope Fund matching program at www.hcahopefund.org.
We also have donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross for the Louisiana flood relief efforts. The company is donating $50,000 and will provide up to an additional $50,000 to match employee contributions. More information about how to donate will be coming from Community Relations shortly.
As they always do, our colleagues in the region have put our patients and communities first, delivering compassionate care despite their personal losses, volunteering to assist with disaster relief, and standing as living examples of our mission and values. Thank you for your care and concern, and please keep our Louisiana colleagues in your thoughts and prayers.
