Grants to aid children’s mental health, radiology

Posted 7/2/12

NEWPORT – Bradley Hospital and Newport Hospital have received grants totaling $250,000 from the Van Beuren Charitable Foundation, a Rhode Island-based grant-making organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the unique characteristics of Newport County and improving the quality of life for its residents.

The $150,000 awarded to Bradley Hospital will be used to enhance outpatient child mental health services in Newport County through a joint program of Bradley Hospital and Newport Hospital. The $100,000 received by Newport Hospital will support the hospital’s interventional radiology program.

As part of the award to Bradley Hospital, the grant will allow the hospital to bring a child psychiatrist, psychologist and assorted outpatient services to Newport Hospital this fall as an extension of Bradley Hospital. Newport Hospital recognized a greater need for pediatric mental health care in the local community and created this partnership with Bradley Hospital.

Through its $100,000 grant, Newport Hospital will expand interventional radiology services, with the goal of providing minimally invasive procedures through image-guided technology for treatment of blood clots, blocked vessels, tumors, and other problems.

This expansion constitutes a nearly $2 million project. The Van Beuren grant actually adds $150,000 to the program fundraising, because it comes during a time frame that allows it to be counted as part of a challenge grant from the Alletta Morris McBean Charitable Trust. That challenge period ends on June 30, and this grant brings the amount raised to within $50,000 of the challenge.
