Radio Nene Valley has been awarded £3,000 from Northamptonshire Community Foundation through the Constance Travis Endowment Fund.
Radio Nene Valley is Northampton General Hospital's radio station and has been broadcasting for nearly 50 years. The station broadcasts programmes 24 hour a day and is available free of charge to patients via their bedside television units.
Funding from the Foundation will support the digitisation of the record library as well as help towards modernising out-dated equipment.
Vice Chair, Janet Gordon, said: "Radio Nene Valley is delighted to be receiving funding from Northamptonshire Community Foundation. This will enable us to start some vital work to replace our worn-out equipment allowing us to digitise the studio which in turn will provide a better quality of service to the patients at Northampton General Hospital."
