Heart of Hugh Chatham Team Member Support Fund

Hugh Chatham’s Vision is “to be the best community healthcare system in the nation with service as our guiding principle.” Our team members ensure continuous access to exceptional care for all members of the community, regardless of circumstance or ability to pay. The Heart of Hugh Chatham Team Member Support Fund was established to provide financial assistance for employees, or their immediate families, during their own time of hardship or emergency situation. The fund is supported by donations from fellow Hugh Chatham employees and members of the community.
