Cardinal Health Foundation Invests $1.2 Million in Local Non-Profit Programs That Improve Health in Key Employee Communities
Date:2/18/2009

Cardinal Health and its employees further strengthen community support by donating an additional $2.6 million to non-profit organizations through its annual giving campaign

DUBLIN, Ohio, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Cardinal Health Foundation today announced it has awarded more than $1.2 million to non-profit programs that seek to improve health care and wellness in six U.S. cities where Cardinal Health has the highest concentration of employees.

Over the past two years, Cardinal Health has focused its philanthropic efforts on three pillars: 1) enhancing health care effectiveness; 2) building healthy and vibrant communities; and 3) connecting the company's employees to their communities. On a national level, this new strategic focus led to the launch of the Cardinal Health Foundation's $1 million, annual Patient Safety Grant Program, which is now celebrating its second year.

On a regional level, this new focus led to the Foundation's $1.5 million support for Solutions for Patient Safety, a statewide collaborative effort between the business community and 24 hospitals to improve health care quality in Ohio.

At the local level, this new focus helped shape the criteria used to award grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 to nearly 50 non-profit organizations in Albuquerque, N.M.; central Ohio; Little Rock, Ark.; Northern Chicago; Radcliff, Ky. and San Diego - the six U.S. cities where Cardinal Health has the highest concentration of employees. Through its Building Healthy Communities Program, the Cardinal Health Foundation gave special consideration to local requests for non-profit funding that:

  • Promote active, healthy lifestyles for children, families and the elderly;
  • Support health literacy, patient education and engagement; and
  • Prevent the abuse and misuse of prescription medications.
