The 4th of July holiday is a time to honor our nation’s birthday and gather with family and friends. Unfortunately, celebratory fireworks and barbecues sometimes lead to burn-related accidents. Grady’s Burn Center is one of only two American Burn Association/American College of Surgeons verified centers in the State of Georgia – the “Gold Standard” for high quality burn care – and provides both critical care and outpatient services to patients who have suffered burn injuries.
This month marks the 100th year of a partnership that has provided Grady Hospital with quality doctors and training for thousands of physicians that have gone on to practice at Grady, in Georgia, and throughout the world.
The Ford Motor Company’s Warriors in Pink Campaign has played an active role in the fight against breast cancer for 21 years and has chosen Grady to be the only Atlanta-area beneficiary of their newest initiative. The Good Day Project, which was announced late last month, has been designed to show how even the smallest kindness can help a breast cancer patient have a good day.
What an amazing year! In spite of the continued downturned economy – or maybe in spite of it – Grady Health Foundation, its staff, volunteers and donors have made this year one of our most exciting, eventful and fruitful. Through the unprecedented support of The Woodruff Foundation and many other donors and allies, Grady Hospital continues to offer premier Level 1 trauma care to the metro Atlanta region and beyond.
