Sometimes, companies want to help make a difference. One way they can do that is to offer grants to companies and establishments that can do good in the world. One such example are hospitals.
Hospitals are given grants from companies all the time. It is a great way for the donator to feel like they are doing good in the world, and for the hospital to have some leeway and abilities to treat people they way they deserved to be treated. This article will go over some of the recent hospital grants that have been given out.

This hospital received grant more than 9 million dollars. The grant will be over a timeframe of four years, which was graciously given by the Health Services Cost Review Commission. The grant will be used to help create a team of four caregivers to work with patients in both their homes and their communities.
