KeyBank Grants $150,000 to Santiam Hospital for Rural Healthcare Expansion


KeyBank has disclosed a donation of $150,000 to the Santiam Hospital And Clinics Foundation, aimed at enhancing healthcare accessibility within the community. The allocated funds will support the expansion of the emergency department, contributing to the realization of a patient-centric and sustainable rural healthcare system model. Additionally, the grant will fund a Community Health Worker (CHW) responsible for guiding patients toward primary care resources, emphasizing preventive care for individuals and families. The grant's broader impact will extend to encompass comprehensive services addressing non-medical concerns.

“KeyBank’s mission is to help its communities thrive, and the first step is ensuring that all of our neighbors have access to the healthcare and other supportive services they need,” said Josh Lyons, KeyBank’s Market President for Oregon and S.W. Washington and Commercial Banking leader.

“We are pleased to help fund these vital measures that contribute to better health and quality of life.

“We are very grateful for the KeyBank grant in support of our Emergency Department expansion and its focus on improving healthcare for an important segment of our patient population,” said Eric K. Pritchard, Executive Director of Santiam Hospital & Clinics Foundation.

“This grant gives Santiam Hospital and Clinics the ability to begin transitioning this patient group toward preventative care and provide funds that will make an immediate impact on their overall wellbeing.”
