Dosher Hospital Foundation


Your Generosity Makes a Difference
Ever since opening its doors in 1930, Dosher Memorial Hospital has received excellent financial support from its friends and neighbors in the community it serves. As the hospital has grown, however, increases in giving options, as well as the hospital's donor base, have created the need for a central channel through which funds may be received, recorded and allocated.

To meet that need, the Dosher Memorial Hospital Foundation was established and began operating in March of 2010. The Foundation's primary responsibility is to encourage a steady flow of funds to the hospital from individuals and organizations within the hospital's service area. These funds enable Dosher Hospital to continue providing its patients with the finest healthcare equipment, programs and services possible...as well as provide the resources necessary for construction, expansion and remodeling projects.

Contributions of any amount, and in honor of any occasion, are gratefully appreciated by the Foundation. Your individual or corporate tax-deductible gift will:

Improve health care for all area residents
Demonstrate your appreciation for quality healthcare
Help maintain lower rates for service
