Craig Hospital License Plate Benefits Severely Injured Patients

Last year Chris Chappell, Craig Hospital Graduate Relations Coordinator, came up with an idea. The idea was relatively straightforward, but will have a huge impact on the lives of Craig Hospital patients suffering through their recovery from Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) as they focus on rebuilding their lives.
Chris’ idea was to create a Craig Hospital license plate through the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles to benefit SCI/TBI patients. So he formed a petition and went to work at gathering up enough signatures to present to state senators for sponsorship. His compassion towards the cause and devotion to the task at hand paid off big. Senate Bill 11-003 was created and sponsored by Senator Nancy Spence. Then this past Thursday, June 1, Governor Hickenlooper signed House Bill 1298 into law.
Through the sales of each of these specialty license plates, $20 will be contributed to the Patient Assistance Fund at Craig Hospital. These funds will assist patients who have depleted the monetary resources available to them to cover the costs associated with their recovery. Some of the ways the fund will contribute are by helping with wheelchairs and needed equipment, as well as enabling patients’ homes (kitchens and bathrooms) and vehicles to become accessible.
The Gilbert Law Group (formerly known as Gilbert & Ollanik) www.auto-law.com is very excited to be reporting on this development as we have witnessed firsthand how Craig Hospital has positively impacted the lives of many of our very dear clients. Craig Hospital is a world renowned facility for patients with spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries located in Englewood, Colorado.
