Annual Appeal Project

Local access to high-quality health care services is something we take for granted while we’re healthy, but are thankful for when we become ill or injured. Our foundation serves as an opportunity for individuals to make contributions to the hospital that will make a difference in the lives of those we serve.


Current Project

In our continuous efforts to improve the patient experience, our goal this year is to raise funds to assist with the relocation of our Specialty Clinic. Relocating, and subsequently remodeling, our Specialty Clinic will improve the overall care experience for patients in both the Specialty Clinic and Medical Clinic. This two-fold project will allow us to:

  • Relocate and remodel an area for our Specialty Clinic providers: Our current Specialty clinic is not conducive to the needs of our patients as the halls, doors, and exam rooms are all very narrow. Patients needing the assistance of a wheelchair often find themselves struggling to maneuver the tight corridors and, unfortunately, patients in bariatric wheelchairs are not able to move past the first set of exam rooms. Relocating our Specialty Clinic would allow us to create more inclusive exam areas, provide more efficient care, and improve the overall care experience.
  • Expand our Medical Clinic: Relocating the Specialty Clinic would allow our Medical Clinic to expand to the area currently occupied by the Specialty Clinic. This expansion would create opportunity to bring on new providers, thus allowing us to see more patients, reduce wait times and improve the patient experience.

We understand the last two years has not been easy on anyone. If you are financially able, please consider making a much-needed gift at this time.
