Florida Hospital Fish Memorial has donated nearly $5,000 of clinic supplies, such as exam gloves, paper for exam tables, band aids, tongue depressors and surgical tape, to local West Volusia County Public Schools.
Pat Travis, Volusia County Schools Volunteer/Partnership Programs Facilitator, said that the program has grown from when it was initiated in 1998, first benefitting 17 schools and now 23.
The schools who have received the clinic supplies include: DeBary Elementary, Deltona High, Deltona Lakes Elementary, Deltona Middle, Discovery Elementary, Enterprise Elementary, Forest Lake Elementary, Friendship Elementary, Galaxy Middle, Heritage Middle, Ivy Hawn Charter, Manatee Cove Elementary, Orange City Elementary, Osteen Elementary, Pine Ridge High, Pride Elementary, Reading Edge Academy, River Springs Middle, Spirit Elementary, Sunrise Elementary, Timbercrest Elementary, University High, and Volusia Pines Elementary.
This program is another example of Florida Hospital Fish Memorial’s Christian mission. The Orange City hospital is part of the Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler nonprofit hospital system with a mission to extend the healing ministry of Christ. In 2012, Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler collectively contributed more than $110 million in benefits to the underprivileged, the community’s overall health and wellness and spiritual needs, and capital improvements.
