MHA launched the Hospital Employee Relief Operation – HERO – program in
2009 after the Joplin, Mo., tornado devastated the community. The tornado
resulted in the complete destruction of one of the community’s two hospitals.
Because of the large number of hospital employees in the community who were
affected by the tornado, MHA sought donations to the HERO fund to help them
recover some of their losses. The fund is activated during natural disasters to alleviate the impact to Missouri hospital employees.
