Each year, our care teams are invited to identify pressing needs they see every day in their work and share their solutions. The North Memorial Health Foundation’s Board of Directors comes together to discuss these requests and award small grants to financially support these critical projects.
These projects highlight the passion, dedication, and innovation of our teams. Taking the time to apply is not a part of their job requirements, but they choose to go above and beyond because they see a need and want to provide the best experience possible for their customers and community. This year, over $130,000 was awarded to fund 6 projects for 2023.
We are excited to announce the following grant projects for 2023:
- Weapons Detection Technology at NMHH
The health and safety of our customers and team members is a top priority at North Memorial Health. In an effort to stay proactive and adapt to current market environments, we will install weapons screening technology at the hospital’s two main entrances.

This program will provide over 1400 opioid overdose, substance use, or opioid use patients with Naloxone kits at discharge.
