Logix Federal Credit Union announced Tuesday the conclusion of its Paying with a Purpose campaign, having raised $50,000 to benefit five local hospitals serving its branch communities.
During the month of August, each time a member used their Logix Mastercard credit or debit card, the credit union made a donation of two cents to support five local hospitals: Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital (HMNH) in Santa Clarita, Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, Dignity Health – Northridge Hospital, Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center, and Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank.
“Earlier this summer, our members embraced our Paying with a Purpose campaign to give back to local food banks. Now more than ever, our health care workers need us, so we brought back this opportunity to raise even more money – this time for hospitals,” President and CEO Ana Fonseca said. “Two cents really adds up, and these dollars will be used for services related to patient support. During this difficult time, Henry Mayo (Newhall Hospital) continues to serve local residents and strives to provide the best possible care. We have been a hospital partner for more than a decade and it is a privilege to continue to help them, especially with the assistance of our membership.”
Renee Leon, donor relations officer for the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation, expressed her gratitude on behalf of the hospital staff, who appreciate this support.
“When the Logix team contacted us to be included as a recipient of this donation, we felt fortunate that they thought of us,” Leon said. “We are truly grateful to the credit union. It’s their dedication to the community that helps us provide the much-needed care to Santa Clarita residents. These dollars will support the new patient tower. This facility delivers clinical excellence with thoughtful consideration to provide the best level of care to the community we are privileged to serve. This support will enable the staff members to continue their commitment to the community and continue this planned long-term project to include state-of-the art surgical suites, a permanent rooftop helipad and advanced patient care.”
During the last 45 years, HMNH has been serving the Santa Clarita Valley. As the region experienced a tremendous population growth, Henry Mayo expanded to serve the community. The hospital opened its patient tower in 2019 to offer all private patient rooms, a new Center for Women and Newborns, the expanded Robert M. and Andi Parker Laboratory and Blood Bank, a café with outdoor seating and more.
