Women’s Outpatient Center Receives $50,000 from United Way

From July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015, the Wheaton Franciscan – St. Joseph Women’s Outpatient Center had a record number of patients. A $50,000 gift from the United Way will provide critical support of the ancillary services offered in the Center that are not reimbursable by insurance but are integral to improving birth outcomes. One reason the United Way continues to fund the Center is because of its excellent birth outcomes, which is due to the staff who understand their patient’s needs and provide excellent care.

Stork's NestAncillary services that are provided at the Center include educational programs such as safe sleep, car seat safety and period of purple crying. It will also support supplies such as portable cribs, car seats, materials for the Storks Nest (an incentive-based program in which patients get points for attending medical appointments and educational sessions and can use the points to shop in the on site store) and patient educational materials. And, it will help to support social worker salaries that help connect patients with community resources and other needs patients have to be successful.
