The Albert Einstein Society has raised and contributed more than $9 million to research and innovative projects throughout Einstein Healthcare Network.
Each year, our success is growing. In FY2015, employee participation grew 6%, with an overall $29,000 increase in total funds donated.
That meant we are able to provide $655,000 to fund initiatives that improve patient care. Projects range widely; for example, grant recipients have trained providers in ultrasound IV insertion, prevented falls with natural sleep methods, and reduced patient restraints by creating an oasis room.
Growth in Funds Raised FY2015
Research Funds will be awarded FY2015
Innovative Program Funds will be awarded FY2015
Awarded through a competitive grant process, funds are allocated to Einstein physicians, nurses and staff to explore new ideas in the laboratory, the hospital, and the community. Through their work, we’re discovering better, more intelligent ways to care for our patients.
These are some of the people who help make it happen. Whether they give six figures or a dollar per pay period, these are the real heroes of the Albert Einstein Society.
