Walmart Foundation awards "Homegrown Health" grant to SeHealth

Lumberton, NC--Southeastern Health (SeHealth) has been awarded a $60,000 grant by the Walmart Foundation in support of nutrition education for both Robeson and Bladen counties.

Funding provided by the one-year "Homegrown Health" grant will be used by SeHealth's Community Health Services department to take messages about proper nutrition and healthy eating habits to students in each county first, then branching out to the community at large.


Endowment announced for nursing education

Nurses affiliated with Southeastern Health now have access to a higher level of learning through an endowment announced by the Southeastern Health (SeHealth) Foundation during a ceremony hosted by the organization’s Professional Growth Council on May 8 as part of National Nurses Week.

The grant, named the Baker Endowment for Nursing Excellence, was established by Stephanie and Wil Bass of Raleigh. The Basses made the multi-year commitment in honor of Stephanie’s grandparents, Dr. Horace Baker, Jr., a surgeon who was a member of the medical staff at Southeastern Regional Medical Center, and his wife Dorothy, a former nurse. Dr. Horace Baker, Sr., Bass’s great-grandfather, was also a surgeon and founder of the Baker Sanatorium which later merged with Thompson Hospital to form what was known as the Baker-Thompson Memorial Hospital in Lumberton in 1946. These two older facilities were replaced by a new hospital known as Robeson County Memorial Hospital in 1953, which later became Southeastern Regional Medical Center.
