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 at LCHC, we are appealing for a variety of projects that benefit the patients, our staff, and our community.

Updating the furnishings in our Infusion Center would allow patients to feel more comfortable, especially at a time when they are receiving care, including chemotherapy treatments and more. We believe keeping this area comfortable while offering state-of-the-art medical care is necessary to foster an environment that promotes healing.

Additionally, we are appealing for digital radios for improved communication in the emergency room and ambulances. Upgrading from analog to digital would allow us consistent sound, a larger calling range, and increased, reliable coverage.

Finally, the tables and chairs located in our meeting rooms, including the Education Room and Conference Room A, need replaced. The current furnishings are worn and offer little flexibility. In addition to our own daily use, many organizations from the community and surrounding areas use these meeting rooms. There is often little time between meetings to accommodate to different room set ups. We would like to upgrade to tables and chairs on wheels for easy set up and ease of moving.
