The 35th Annual Top Hat Gala
As a leading resource for health care services in Southern Alameda County,
we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 35th Annual Top Hat
Gala. While we were very much looking forward to welcoming you back for
a Top Hat celebration, we hope that in lieu of joining us at our Gala,
you and your family will consider making a commitment to Top Hat’s
beneficiary, Washington Hospital’s new
Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation Center (IRF).
Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation at Washington Hospital - Opening in 2022, the Inpatient Acute Rehab Center will fill a critical
gap in rehabilitation care in our local district and surrounding communities.
The Center will offer intensive, specialized treatment for patients with
stroke, limb amputation and other complex neurological and orthopedic
conditions. The focus is individualized care and treatment to help patients
develop the daily living skills needed to achieve the highest possible
quality of live. Currently, patients have to travel far outside our community
to receive this important specialty care. Through clinical collaboration
and advanced technology, patients will receive daily physical, occupational
and speech therapy from Washington Hospital's talented team of therapists
and staff- giving them the best possible chances at reclaiming their independence.
Your support for Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation will help purchase
advanced equipment and technology, including specialized lifts, tracking
systems and speech therapy devices to help meet complex patient needs
on the road to recovery.
Watch the video below, from Kimberly Hartz, CEO, on the importance of Inpatient
Acute Rehabilitation at Washington Hospital.
