UnitedHealthcare has donated more than $70,000 to Fisher House Naval Medical Center of San Diego to assist the families of wounded U.S. military members. The donation will help fund the Fisher House "Sponsor A Family" program.
Fisher House provides a wide range of services and support to the families of wounded U.S. military. The donation supports one year's worth of lodging and support costs for all families staying at the Naval Medical Center Fisher Houses.
"These Fisher Houses have provided thousands of nights of lodging during a critical time for these families. With UnitedHealthcare's generosity, we will be able to ensure there is never a charge for their lodging. It removes that financial burden and lets the families focus on healing," said David Coker, Fisher House Foundation president.
"UnitedHealthcare is grateful for the opportunity to support Fisher House and help make a difference in the lives of our nation's service members, veterans and their families," said Lori McDougal, CEO of UnitedHealth Military & Veterans.
UnitedHealthcare's support of the Fisher House Foundation is the first wellness project to be funded as a result of the company's participation in CBS EcoMedia Inc.'s WellnessAd program.
"Holidays, birthdays & anniversaries have been celebrated with tears and smiles with people who truly understand what the other person is experiencing."
