The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Masonic Charitable Foundation of Oklahoma to fund specialized medical and therapy equipment.
In April 2017, the Foundation donated more than $12,000 to the Hospital for medical equipment. This year, the Foundation’s board unanimously approved another donation to show their continued support.
“We did a grant last year and our board responded so positively because The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital is such a unique organization that offers services nobody else does in the state. This is definitely a place we want to support,” said Julie Toben, chief financial officer, Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma.
Last year, staff from the Foundation and board members took a tour of the Hospital, seeing firsthand the need for support and the Hospital’s ability to serve patients from all 77 counties in Oklahoma. Having the ability to serve patients statewide is an important factor for the Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma to consider when awarding grants.
“The Hospital provides such a unique service here in Oklahoma. We went on a tour last year and saw a need for equipment. We understand there isn’t always enough money to do all that you need to do. Medical equipment is expensive, so we hope this will buy equipment to be put into service immediately for the patients and staff,” said John Logan, executive director, Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma.
