"Our focus was to continue to help those who are being impacted by COVID-19,” said Lu Urdaneta, CEO, MONAT Gratitude. “No one could have anticipated what 2020 had in store, but we have adapted and worked to help provide relief to those who have been hit hardest by the pandemic.”

- Memorial Health Foundation

“With so many in our community suffering right now, this contribution of $500,000 is another way MONAT and its independent Market Partners hope to do our part to help our community,” said Stuart MacMillan, president, MONAT Global. “Gratitude is in our DNA, and it’s more important than ever for us to help those who need it most.”
“We are extremely grateful to MONAT Gratitude for this generous and thoughtful support. These funds will allow us to assist our patients, their families, and members of our community as we all battle COVID 19,” said Kevin Janser, senior vice president and chief development officer, Memorial Health Foundation.
“Baptist Health Foundation is immensely grateful for the support of MONAT Gratitude. This donation will allow us to purchase additional Masimo Digital Oximeters. By having these digital enabled tools available, it allows us to send COVID-19 positive patients home that just need observation – yet be able to monitor them remotely – and keep hospital beds open and free for more critical cases. Thanks to their generosity, we’re able to make a greater difference in the lives of our patients and their families,” said Alexandra Villoch, CEO, Baptist Health Foundation.
Since its inception in 2014, MONAT Gratitude has played a crucial role in the MONAT Global company culture. The values of gratitude and giving back have always been a high priority for the MONAT team. Today, the organization focuses its giving efforts in three impact areas: families, children and education.
