Areas of Need
Programs and Services
Medicare or private insurance do not cover all treatment programs offered by Siskin Hospital. As a result, many patients are unable to afford the cost of specialized programs and services designed to bring them new levels of independence. This is where you, the donor, can play a vital role in providing those programs and services to our patients by selecting a specific designation for your gift. Contributions may be designated for programs such as brain injury, stroke, amputee, orthopedic or community re-entry programs.
Donors may also choose to designate contributions to a specific service, such as balance and dizziness, lymphedema treatment, driving evaluations, low vision, an upgrade from private rooms to private suites for patients requiring their families to stay with them at all times, or a variety of other services.
When you make a donation to Siskin Hospital, you can rest assured that every dollar will be used to provide the highest quality physical rehabilitation care for our patients. If you have questions regarding the designation of gifts, please call the Development Office at 423.634.1208.
With declining Medicare reimbursements for the foreseeable future, charity care has become the primary area of need for patients at Siskin Hospital.
In an effort to raise much-needed charity care dollars, Siskin Hospital is proud to host two annual fundraising events, where every dollar raised provides charity care for those of our patients without insurance or unable to afford the cost of their treatment. In March, we host the Possibilities: Siskin Hospital Celebrates Life Beyond Disability Luncheon, which is our only community-wide fundraising event. In the fall, we host the annual Siskin Hospital Golf Classic, which has become Chattanooga’s premier golf tournament, held at Council Fire Golf Course.
Siskin Hospital is grateful to the many dedicated businesses and individuals for their ongoing support of these events through sponsorships, donations and table or ticket purchases. Without you, we would be unable to provide important rehabilitation services to the substantial number of charity care patients we serve each year. Thank you for helping us to continue the Siskin Hospital spirit of Caring People. Changing Lives.®
