Success Story

Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation Endowment for Education, Recruitment and Retention has provided scholarships, educational opportunities and funds to enhance our provider staff, paramedics, nursing staff, ancillary staff and support staff in a thriving small rural hospital setting. These funds make it possible to stabilize heart and trauma patients, for patients to secure tests, surgeries , wound and injury care close to home. In addition, Veterans Memorial Hospital provides Community and Home Care Services locally so citizens can remain longer in their homes. Donations are very important to provide quality staff and the above services in a rural setting for continued stabilization of patients to transfer to larger hospitals, to heal illness and injury and provide the opportunity to receive this close to their doorstep. We thank you for your consideration of a donation!
