Why Should I Give?
As our community continues to grow, so does the need for quality health care. Recognizing that the best health care is the care delivered close to home, Washington County Memorial Hospital Foundation was established in 2004 as a means of support to Washington County Memorial Hospital. Thanks to a team of dedicated professionals at Washington County Memorial Hospital and it’s Rural Health Clinics, lives are saved and patients are able to recover in the comfort of their own community.
As the cost of technology continues to rise, Washington County Memorial Hospital Foundation, through excellent stewardship of the donations received, plans on continually positioning itself to supply the hospital with needed equipment designed to enhance the hospital services. These are items that the hospital budget could not afford otherwise. In addition, there are programs and scholarships that the Foundation can assist the hospital in providing.
Although Washington County Memorial Hospital receives some support through a local property tax assessment, that amount is not enough to match the increasing financial pressure of providing quality health care to our rural services area.
Honoring of Memorializing a Loved One
Washington County Memorial Hospital Foundation accepts donations in honor or in memory of a loved one. Upon receipt of a donation, Washington County Memorial Hospital Foundation sends an acknowledgment and tax receipt to the donor and also notifies the family that a donation has been made in their honor or memory. Many families request donations be made to the foundation in lieu of flowers, cards, or gifts. Donations are considered tax deductible and may be made in any dollar amount. All donors are recognized in the Foundation Life newsletter.
General donations may be made to WCMH Foundation in any dollar amount and are placed in the Foundation’s general fund for the purchase of added technology designed to enhance the services already being provided by Washington County Memorial Hospital.
However, if you have a specific project, department, or equipment you would like your contribution designated to, just inform us of your wishes.
All donors are recognized in the Foundation Life newsletter.
