In an organization as broad as Carolinas HealthCare System, there are numerous other causes that philanthropy supports. In this category, support can improve healthcare for patients in:
Facilities. Philanthropy supports initiatives at several Carolinas HealthCare System facilities – including CMC-Mercy, CMC-Pineville and CMC-University.
Rehabilitation. It also supports programs at Carolinas Rehabilitation, which helps patients who have experienced traumatic injuries, strokes, amputations or other conditions requiring physical rehabilitation. One such program is the Adaptive Sports & Adventures Program (ASAP), which is designed to challenge youth and adults with physical disabilities develop skills that will lead to and enhance an active and productive lifestyle – one without barriers or limits. You may designate your gift to this program specifically, or make a general fund to support other patient resources available at Carolinas Rehabilitation.
Pastoral care. Donations support the work of hospital chaplains who tend to patients’ emotional and spiritual needs through individual contacts and worship services.
Sports medicine. Carolinas HealthCare’s sports medicine program helps athletes from Little League to the National Football League receive treatment and prevent injuries.
