Glendale Community Foundation Gives $10,000 Grant
Glendale Adventist Medical Center is proud to announce that the Glendale Community Foundation recently gave the hospital a $10,000 grant. The grant will be used for a Family Waiting Room in the Medical/Surgical unit on the fourth floor of the hospital’s new patient care West Tower. This waiting room will be named in honor of the late Tom Miller who served as executive director of the Glendale Community Foundation for eighteen years.

“We appreciate this grant because it represents local individuals supporting local endeavors. Our partnership with the Glendale Community Foundation shows the kind of results that can be achieved when organizations work together. The outcome will be better healthcare for everyone in Glendale,” said David Burghart, president of the GAMC Healthcare Foundation.

Since opening its doors in 1905, Glendale Adventist Medical Center has continually expanded its facilities and services to provide the best possible care to the community. The new patient care tower, when completed in April of this year, will offer seven stories of expanded patient care, a larger emergency department, spacious surgery suites, private patient rooms, a new cardiovascular center, an intensive care unit, and more.

“It will be a place where leading-edge technology and medical expertise are blended for patient comfort and convenience,” said Burghart. “Additionally, we are making sure that the family members of those in our medical care are also being served, and this gift enables us to do that.”

“Our charitable investments support programs and initiatives that benefit the communities of Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Montrose and Verdugo City said Glendale Community Foundation.

The mission of the Glendale Community Foundation is to provide counsel to donors and financial support to diverse needs in the communities they serve. Glendale Community Foundation was founded in 1956 with one $3,000 check from German Immigrant John Bruecker. Today, assets have grown to more that 8.2 million.
