Lawrence + Memorial Hospital accepts gift from Dominion Energy
New London — Lawrence + Memorial Hospital announced Wednesday the receipt of a $15,000 donation from The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation to support a COVID-19 relief fund benefiting the hospital's staff.
Dominion made a $10,000 donation to the fund earlier this year.
“We continue to be extremely grateful to the community for their support of the health care workers here at L+M,” said Christine Meola, vice president of development at L+M Healthcare. “The generous contributions of Dominion Energy benefit our front-line staff who have worked tirelessly to provide first-class care during the pandemic.”
Earlier this week, Meola; Bill Stanley, vice president of government and community relations at L+M; Alice Soscia, L+M development officer, and Nancy Bulkeley, senior community affairs representative at Dominion Energy, employed COVID-19 social distancing measures while gathering for the presentation of the gift.
“We are pleased to support the Lawrence + Memorial Hospital COVID-19 relief fund and extend our utmost thanks to the front-line staff who have worked tirelessly during these unprecedented times,” Bulkeley said.
Established by the Yale New Haven Health System, which includes L+M, the COVID-19 fund supports ongoing mental health and wellness assessments, therapeutic workshops, support groups and individual interventions for physicians and medical and support staff involved in all aspects of patient care during the pandemic.
