Women of the Moose donate to Nash Health Care Foundation

The Women of the Moose recently made a $750 donation to the Nash Health Care Foundation towards the construction of a Pediatric Emergency Department. The Women of the Moose is a fraternal organization that assists the Moose Fraternity through the principles of faith, hope, and charity. Cheri Hayes, a sonographer at Nash Health Care and member of Women of the Moose, was instrumental in facilitating the donation.

Twenty percent of the patients at Nash General Hospital’s Emergency Care Center are under the age of 17 – nearly double the amount of pediatric patients in other North Carolina emergency rooms. At Nash, this twenty percent equates to about 13,000 children a year.  In response to this need in our community, Nash Health Care is building a Pediatric Emergency Department as a part of its most recent hospital expansion. When completed in 2014, it will make Nash Health Care one of eight hospitals in North Carolina with a separate area dedicated solely for pediatric emergency care.

Originally, the Women of the Moose was organized in 1913. The local chapter of the Women of the Moose, organized in 1960, selects a charity to support each month, and a member is assigned responsibility for facilitating a fund-raising event. Hayes helped organize an auction at the Moose Lodge.

“The Pediatric Emergency Department is something that we will all be affected by—I feel that we all have an interest in it, and it will benefit the entire community,” Hayes said.
