St. Vincent Charity Medical Center and Joseph’s Home receive CVS Health community grants

CVS Health recently provided community grants to both St. Vincent Charity Medical Center and Joseph’s Home to help increase access to quality health care services and improve health outcomes.

St. Vincent Charity received a $10,000 grant to support its diabetes education program. Joseph’s Home received a $5,000 grant to help provide nursing care to its acutely ill homeless residents.

“Financial support, like the grant we received from CVS Health, is essential to make healing a reality for the homeless men we serve so they can get on the road to stable health and permanent housing,” said Georgette Jackson, Joseph’s Home executive director.

Grants were awarded to organizations that support CVS Health’s commitment to enhance the health and well-being for at-risk and underserved populations by offering quality health and rehabilitation services and health education. The goal of the CVS Health Community Grants Program is to provide relief for both adults and children who lack medical insurance and help ensure they receive the proper medical care they need.

“As a pharmacy innovation company, we are committed to helping people on their path to better health. We are proud to support organizations that increase access to quality health care because we know their efforts are critical to delivering better community health,” said Eileen Howard Boone, senior vice president, corporate social responsibility and philanthropy, CVS Health. “We are pleased to support the work that St. Vincent Charity Medical Center and Joseph’s Home are doing in the community and we look forward to working with both of them to fulfill their programs’ missions.”

Joseph’s Home and St. Vincent Charity Medical Center are ministries of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
