Caring for Our Community is at the Very Heart of Our Mission

Our hospital was founded on the vision of one community member, and it was built by the generosity of local philanthropists and other community members. Since first opening our doors in 1967, we continue to rely on the generosity of our community and donors like you to provide the best care possible to our community. Your gifts are essential in accomplishing this mission.

The McKenzie Health System Foundation supports the hospital in achieving its goals through philanthropy. Your gifts ensure that McKenzie Health System continues to have the facilities, technology, resources, and skilled providers to meet the needs of our region every day.

The Value of Community Support

Imagine having the ability to make a profound difference in the lives of your family, children, grandchildren, and future generations who will need access to quality healthcare close to home. It is not often that we can make such a positive impact on the lives of people we might not even know.

When rural communities thrive, it is because of the people and their commitment to work together and support one another. That concept in healthcare can be a real game-changer. Charitable gifts are critical resources for a 24/7/365, broad-based community mission while working with the limits of a not-for-profit budget. These contributions allow us to advance care that operations fund slowly, if at all –advances that will make a difference.
