HOULTON,  Maine — The Health Services Foundation was the recipient of a $2,000 Spotlight Grant from the Houlton Lodge of Elks No. 835 on Dec. 10. 

The grant funding will be used to acquire critically-needed equipment at Houlton Regional Hospital.  Lori Weston, executive director of the Health Services Foundation, stated “equipment needs are an on-going and often critical need at Houlton Regional Hospital. The Foundation works closely with the hospital administration throughout the year to identify and address critical needs within departments.
