WVIA PR - WVIA recognizes Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation for its donation

Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

PITTSTON, Pa. – WVIA Public Media is pleased to announce that Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation has donated $25,000 through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program to support WVIA's Educational Services.

 

The grant was given in support of WVIA’s efforts to inform and educate it’s viewing audience of over 22 counties in northeastern Pennsylvania and the central Susquehanna valley on health topics discussed in it’s on-going television series “Call The Doctor”. Each month the WVIA-TV show features round table discussions with area doctors and experts focusing on a particular medical topic. Combined with individual testimonials from those who have experienced the particular health issue, “Call the Doctor” connects its viewer to the local resources available to them.

 

Northeastern PA Health Care Foundation’s mission is to support the health care needs including, but not limited to, health education, community wellness, payment for medical care of uninsured and underinsured regardless of the facility of treatment, and to improve the complete physical, mental, and social well-being of the residents of Lackawanna, Luzerne, and Wyoming Counties.

 

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation was established in 2011 following the sale of Mercy Hospital in Scranton. The Scranton Area Foundation serves as the administrator of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation. The Scranton Area Foundation is a public community foundation that has been serving the people of Lackawanna County since 1954.
