Our Impact

The Foundation’s origin story begins in 1986 as a traditional hospital foundation, funding medical equipment and supporting the continuing education of health care professionals. In recent years, funding priorities have expanded to include programs that promote health, whether in the health system or community.

The constant that has remained unchanged is the Foundation’s ability to amplify donor generosity; to date $29 million in donations have been received and turned into a continuous funding stream that has contributed in excess of $25 million dollars to enhance health care in our community.
