The Wayne HealthCare Foundation is pleased to announce its donation to support State of the Heart Hospice’s Camp Bearable Program. The Wayne HealthCare Foundation’s mission is collaborating through philanthropy with Wayne HealthCare in order to enhance community education and wellness close to home. The foundation is honored to support community health programs and many focus areas including youth health and wellness, which aligns with Camp Bearable – a wonderful bereavement camp for children, diabetes/nutrition and obesity awareness, developing future healthcare leaders, serving seniors and the aging population, and providing state-of-the-art equipment technologies & facilities to match the world-class staff at Wayne HealthCare providing services to this community exceedingly well. The Wayne HealthCare Foundation is honored to be part of this caring community giving back to strengthen community health for Darke County and beyond.

State of the Heart Hospice provides Camp Bearable, a free camp, to children who are going through a loss of a loved one. It is a camp serving closed to 50 grieving children and allows them to express their ideas and emotions and share with others going through similar situations. Wayne HealthCare and State of the Heart Hospice are community partners and two summers ago opened the Hospice Care Center at Wayne HealthCare. State of the Heart Hospice and Wayne HealthCare worked together on this project and over two years later, nearly 400 patients have been served with this great care and home-like atmosphere for families and loved ones.

Wayne HealthCare and the Wayne HealthCare Foundation thank the community for their support and State of the Heart Hospice for their caring commitment to families in this community.
