Patients in Need Fund
The purpose of the Patients in Need Fund (formerly known as the Good Neighbor Fund) is to provide assistance for out-of-pocket needs that can devastate individuals or families when a medical crisis arises. This may include but is not limited to:
- transportation to and from appointments or after a hospital stay
- prescription support
- medical equipment
- home health needs such as oxygen, eyeglasses, dentures, and more
- personal barriers for safe discharge
Support from this fund is made with recommendations from Bronson's Case Management and Medical Social Work team, Patient Relations, and/or Nurse Navigators.
