Maui Health receives $300K for new program
Maui Health Foundation has received a $300,000 gift from Tom and Kathleen O’Gorman for the development of a provider wellness program at Maui Health.
The provider wellness program is being developed to focus on the holistic health and well-being of community physicians providing care at Maui Health, according to a recent press release.
“The O’Gormans’ gift provides a tremendous opportunity for our hospital to further focus on clinician wellness,” said Giulietta Swenson, a clinical psychologist with Maui Health. “Even before COVID, clinician burnout was already a national public health concern. The tireless efforts of our nurses, doctors and support staff during the pandemic demonstrate that the wellness of our workforce is a valuable community resource that we need to preserve and protect. This generous gift allows us to implement more initiatives that can transform the clinician’s work-life and ultimately lead to even better patient outcomes.”
Maui Health Foundation is accepting additional gifts to fund the program. For more information, visit mauihealth .org/foundation.
