Grants Manager

“Keeping a single mother in her home after a lengthy illness, allowing a family to relieve the burden of finances when losing a loved one and helping families when their home has been destroyed in a disaster—they all have hope. Everyone deserves opportunities in life and we all win when families are stable and healthy so in turn we can care for our patients and communities. I believe the Hope Fund is an integral part of HCA Healthcare’s culture of caring and I am honored to be a part!”
