Whitesburg ARH Hospital was a recipient of a HANDS Award for an In- Service Hospital Project.

The birth of a child should be an exciting time for a family. However, occasionally complications and unexpected events can turn that joy into heartbreak. The Whitesburg ARH auxiliary wanted to reach out to families experiencing the tragedy of a fetal or stillborn death. The auxiliary provides a white handcrocheted outfit, cap and afghan for the baby and purchases an infant casket. This offers a valuable service to the family and helps them begin the healing process over the loss of their child.

Projects like this exemplify the kindness and dedication
