Meeker Memorial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Meeker Memorial Hospital (MMH), was established in 2005 with the sole purpose to help secure philanthropic resources to help maintain, improve and expand health care services for patients, their families, and the Meeker County community. Since 2005, the Foundation has engaged donors and community members and raised more than $1.7 million in philanthropic resources in support of MMH. Foundation funds have been used in the following ways:
- More than $1.2 million raised as part of the “Invest in the Future” Capital Campaign for the hospital expansion project completed in 2010.
- More than $18,000 raised to help with upgrades in MMH’s Specialty and Oncology Clinics – all focused on enhancing patient experience and access to care.
- More than $23,500 raised to help upgrade equipment for MMH’s Cardiac Rehabilitation program.
- Grant funding of $10,000 for MMH’s Wound Clinic to help with the purchase of a new MIST Therapy machine – a non-contact low-frequency ultrasound, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT).
- Grant funding of $2,000 to MMH’s Pediatric Rehabilitation program for the purchase of a new Rifton Adaptive Tricycle.
- For the last decade, annual funding (approximately $3,000 each year) of Meeker County Sheriff’s Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program.
- Establishing, and growing, an Endowment Fund that will serve as a permanent resource and help ensure the Foundation continues to support local access to state-of-the-art health care for generations to come.
