Cancer Center Awarded Kate B. Reynolds Grant
The Cancer Center at High Point Regional Health System has been awarded a $300,000 grant by the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust of Winston-Salem, Meredith Eanes, High Point Regional Vice President, said today.
“The funds will be used in support of the cost of renovation and construction of the Cancer Center building, located at Westwood and Elm Streets, next to the main hospital building,” according to Eanes. All services relating to cancer treatment are now housed in one location, and the first patients were transferred to the center from the hospital on June 10.
“Both the community and the employees of the health system have shown tremendous support for the Cancer Center and the campaign to raise funds for its construction. The grant from Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust will give us additional resources to reach our goal,” said Eanes.
The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust was created in 1947 by the will of Mrs. William N. Reynolds of Winston-Salem. Three-fourths of the Trust’s grants are designated for use for health-related programs and services across North Carolina and one-fourth for the poor and needy of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.
