Greatest Need Fund
Throughout the year, special needs arise that were unanticipated during the capital budget process. Gifts to this fund allow Aurora Medical Center the flexibility to respond to unexpected needs.
Low Income Newborn Visit Clinic
Many of Aurora Medical Center's new moms are without means of pay or insurance coverage and, therefore, care is often provided without reimbursement. This program captures almost 100% response for the follow-up visit one or two days after delivery. Not only are we capturing an immediate opportunity to assess newborns in their first several days, we are able to support the new moms with answers and serve as a resource.
Mammogram Screening Program for uninsured and underinsured patients in the Kenosha area
For a woman with limited income and without health insurance, this screening tool is beyond her reach. This program is designed to provide free mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women in Kenosha County. The mammogram screenings are totally funded through philanthropy.
Palliative Care Fund
As the average lifespan of Americans is extended, the need for coordinated care through pain management and end-of-life issues becomes more and more critical. This fund will support the development of a program that offers our patients an expert advocate to ensure the best quality of life possible.
Prescription Funding for Emergency Department Pediatric Patients
Funded through charitable gifts, this program was established to assist parents who are uninsured and those in need with their children's prescriptions. Often children go without their medicine because the parents do not have the money to fill the prescriptions written by the physician.
Aurora Senior Health and Wellness Center
The Aurora Senior Health and Wellness Center serves senior citizens and their families when seniors encounter a deficit in physical and mental health. A multidisciplinary team of specialists, trained in geriatric care, share in the evaluation and work together to provide solutions for the person experiencing decline as well as the patient's family members. This fund helps support those patients unable to pay for these services.
Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program
The SANE program serves the residents of Racine, Walworth and Kenosha counties. This is the only forensic evidence collection program serving the rural areas of southeastern Wisconsin. With the increasing numbers of victims seen each year, the need to have the most current information and latest technology is imperative.
Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic
The Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic enables patients in Kenosha and surrounding communities to receive comprehensive cancer care, including medical and radiation oncology, while remaining close to home and family.
Contributions to this fund will flow to services and programs specifically relating to the special needs of women.
