Founded in 2013, Jefferson Healthcare Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to enhance the excellence of our region’s medical services through charitable contributions and community involvement – so that more patients can find the care they need right here at home, and not have to travel hours away when they are ill and at their most vulnerable. We know that people heal best with their families, loved ones, and support networks nearby.
Our purpose is to develop philanthropic funds through donations, grants, special events, capital campaigns, and planned giving – in support of the projects and programs of our public hospital. As a small, rural, "critical access" hospital system, Jefferson Healthcare has limited funds for capital needs and other special expenses. Generous giving to the Foundation directly addresses these needs – to provide local access to advanced medical treatments, state of the art medical technology, and the best in preventative medical care.
In recent years, donors to Jefferson Healthcare Foundation empowered the purchase of a 3-D mammography machine and a nuclear camera. Together our community helped bring Cardiac Rehabilitation back to Jefferson County, sponsored a new infant warmer for our Family Birth Center, and raised funds for echocardiography at our annual Well Hearts Luncheon.
Please join us with your financial support today – to give more people the opportunity to receive their care in Jefferson County.
