This endowed fund allows the Cabrini Social Workers to assist those patients who do not have the resources to meet varied costs associated with long term treatment or hospitalization. The hospital absorbs the costs of clinical care, and the Patient Assistance Fund provides help for travel, medical equipment, lodging, clothing, etc. All recipients are screened by the Social Workers and the medical staff. A gift to the Patient Assistance Fund gives the Cabrini associates the opportunity to live out our mission “to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.”
