SALMON CREEK — The Health Care Foundation, based in Longview, gave Community Home Health & Hospice a $50,000 grant. The hospice facility initially raised $50,000 through individual donations and from the Friends of Hospice Southwest Washington, and then the foundation matched it. A little more than half of the $100,000 covered charity care needs of dying veterans in the Longview Hospice Care Center, as well as paid for equipment upgrades. “The important role Community Home Health & Hospice plays in the lives of the most vulnerable among us has been highlighted even more during this pandemic,” Max Anderson, a Health Care Foundation board member, said in a news release. “New medical equipment goes a long way in keeping our patients comfortable and safe,” said Greg Pang, president and CEO of Community Home Health & Hospice. Community Home Health & Hospice, 3102 N.E. 134th St., Vancouver, is a nonprofit that offers home health, in-patient hospice care and bereavement services. For more information, visit www.chhh.org.
