Concord Hospital Trust Receives $1,000 Gift from the Junior Service League, Concord

The Junior Service League of Concord has awarded $1,000 to Concord Hospital Trust to provide support to pediatric patients suffering from a behavioral health crisis. The grant will be used to enhance services to children who are admitted through Concord Hospital’s Emergency Department Yellow Pod and are in need of an extended Hospital stay in the pediatric department while awaiting transfer to a dedicated psychiatric facility.

Behavioral health access and affordability was once again identified as a priority health need in the 2015 Capital Region Health Needs Assessment. Embedded within this need is illness associated with depression, stress and self-harm. Having a dedicated pediatric department able to care for children with a wide range of health issues, is but one part of the extraordinary work performed daily by Concord Hospital’s committed staff.

"We are so pleased to be in partnership with Concord Hospital and be able to support children during a time of crisis in their lives." says Stacey Morin, Junior Service League president.

In 2016, Concord Hospital provided just over $46 million in community benefit support to patients in our region and expanded youth behavioral health intervention in the Hospital’s Pediatrics Unit to provide 118 pediatric behavioral health patients with a calm, safe setting and special attention to prevent their condition from worsening.
