Comfort. Care. Hope.



Happy New Year!

We hope you had a joyful holiday season doing what you love, with those you cherish.

Our hearts were filled with joy as we witnessed generous acts of kindness over the holidays; delicious treats, plants and stockings/gifts… our patients were feeling the love! At HDS Foundation, we were feeling the love as well! Our generous community showed unwavering support for our annual Snowflakes & Angels Christmas Campaign, raising over $120,000!

These funds will allow us to purchase 12 new beds and specialty mattresses for our patients. A comfortable and safe bed is vital to a patient’s healthcare journey. Did you know the average hospital stay at HDS is 22 days for the High Intensity Rehab Program and 61 days for Short-Term Complex Medical Management?

You will learn more about our Bed & Mattress Campaign in this edition of @HDS Foundation NEWS. You will also hear about our upcoming Celebrity Ice Cup and read an inspiring story from a recent patient, Chuck Blair.

Thank you for caring and believing in the work we do for Hotel Dieu Shaver. We have exciting plans for the year ahead, and look forward to sharing them with you. On behalf of our team, we wish you health & happiness in 2024.
With Gratitude,

Tracy Geoffroy
Executive Director
