Spokane, WA

Washington Trust Bank announced its support of the financial therapy module within St. Luke’s Community project at St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute.

With the help of St. Luke’s therapists, patients in the financial therapy module will safely learn proper techniques to regain important life-skills like swiping a credit/debit card at a store register, general mathematic skills and withdrawing funds from the Washington Trust Bank Automated Teller Machine (ATM), also available for use by employees, visitors and patient family members.

“Washington Trust Bank’s contribution to the financial therapy module at St. Luke’s Community will help patients be confident in everyday life settings,” said St. Luke’s Administrator Chuck Gersdorf.

Washington Trust Bank is committed to help the communities it serves by providing assistance to numerous charitable organizations and worthy causes within the community. “Washington Trust is extremely proud to be a supporter of this innovative community project,” said Jack Heath, president and CEO of Washington Trust Bank. “We all know someone or have a loved one that has been injured or had an illness that required therapy. The establishment of St. Luke’s Community will provide our community with necessary resources and outlets for this specialized care. Our participation in this project is one way that Washington Trust can reach out to benefit our regional community.”

St. Luke’s Community, a 2,200sq ft innovative therapy area, will provide modules of real-life community settings including a grocery store, restaurant, bus stop, office setting, movie rental and vehicles with the goal of helping patients get back to living.
