GLENDALE—Dignity Health – Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center is saddened by the devastation and growing crisis in Armenia. As a result of the recent and ongoing attacks in Armenia, the hospital’s staff and physicians took immediate action to review its medical supply inventory and ship a large donation of much-needed items to Armenia to help care for the injured.
“Our mission to help our community includes moments like these that have an impact from around the globe,” states Jill Welton, Hospital President, Glendale Memorial. “The hospital’s donation of surgical and medical supplies, nearing $50,000 in value, were provided to the Armenia Fund and Armenian American Nurses Association. The people of Armenia need as much support as we can provide and we will continue to collect and send additional supplies in the coming days.”
“Thank you to Glendale Memorial Hospital for standing with us during this very difficult time,” shared Tagui Sarkisyan, President of the Armenian American Nurses Association. “Our community depends on the compassionate care of Glendale Memorial, and their leadership at a moment like this means so much.”
