Dosher Foundation Gets Golden LEAF Grant

By Staff Reports, posted Aug 7, 2020
Dosher Memorial Hospital Foundation received $378,000 from the Golden LEAF Foundation for an on-site well water system at the Southport hospital, officials an­nounced in a recent news release.
The system will provide a water source for both potable (drinking) and non-potable water and “support critical equipment, boilers, chillers, cooling towers and chilled water systems in the event of a disaster or other loss of municipal water,” the release stated.
The back-up water well will be critical to help keep patients safe and the hospital operational in case of a hurricane or other event that would block Dosher’s ability to use public resources, said Lynda Stanley, pres­ident of Dosher Memorial Hospital and the Dosher Foundation.
“I am extremely grateful for everyone that worked with Dosher to make the approval of this funding possible,” said Lynda Stanley, presi­dent of Dosher Memorial Hospital and the Dosher Foundation. “A special thanks to Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance for their support and the Golden LEAF Foundation for their consideration.”
The Golden LEAF Disaster Recovery Grant Program is funded through state appropriations to the Golden LEAF Foundation for grants to repair or replace damaged or de­stroyed infrastructure and equipment as well as for the infrastructure to support hazard mitigation resulting from hurricanes Matthew, Florence, Michael and Dorian.
