French Hospital Medical Center (FHMC) recently hosted a Community Grants Awards Ceremony in honor of Catholic Healthcare West (CHW) Community Grants Program recipients. At the event, six local nonprofit grant recipients (The Alliance for Pharmaceutical Access, Cancer Well-Fit, Community Action Partnership, Friends of Prado Day Center, YMCA and Transitional Food and Shelter) were awarded $45,000 in funding.
