Additional Grants and Donations Total Approximately $50,000

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. and CLEARWATER, Fla., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Catholic Health East and BayCare Health System are each donating $100,000 to support Global Health Ministry's relief efforts in Haiti. Global Health Ministry, a supportive health corporation of Catholic Health East, will use the funds to help rebuild the Hospital St. Francis de Sales in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, which was decimated after the earthquake.

"CHE leaders fully support Global Health Ministry's mission to provide health care to the poor and underserved communities in the developing world," said Robert V. Stanek, president and chief executive officer, Catholic Health East. "Rebuilding the Hospital St. Francis de Sales is crucial to the short- and long-term health and well-being of the Haitian people. And we are committed to providing all the support we can to make this happen."

BayCare, which has a Joint Operating Agreement with CHE, has a long history of teaming with Global Health Ministry to provide mission services to Peru, Jamaica and Haiti, among others.  BayCare is making this donation in the name of its more than 18,000 employees.

"After the earthquake in Haiti, we received a resounding response from our team members who stepped up to give their time, talent and money," said Stephen R. Mason, CEO and president of BayCare Health System. "It was this overwhelming response that inspired our organization to help re-build the Hospital St. Francis de Sales on behalf of all our team members. We look forward to partnering with Catholic Health East and the team at St. Francis de Sales to restore the hospital as soon as possible."

Additionally, Stella Maris Insurance Company, Ltd., also a supportive health corporation of CHE, pledged another $10,000, bringing the System's total contribution to $210,000.
