Meeker Memorial Hospital Foundation
The Meeker Memorial Hospital Foundation was incorporated in July 2005. The creation of the Foundation was an integral part of the strategic plan adopted by the Board of Directors. Increasing health care costs and uncertain reimbursement for programs such as Medicare and Medicaid will create challenges and new opportunities as we continue to meet the needs of our community. The Foundation will secure new sources of revenue to maintain, improve and expand health care services for our patients, their families and the community. As a 501 (c) (3) charitable corporation, the Foundation will allow donors to maximize the impact of their donations and ensure funds will be restricted for use at the Hospital.
Funds will be used in three major areas:
- Program support
- Equipment purchases and
- Facility expansion and improvement.
Quality local healthcare is critical for our families and the community. At one time in our lives most of us, or someone we love, has been cared for at Meeker Memorial. We realize the valuable asset we have with the hospital in our community, and we are committed to making sure that our children, and the many generations to follow, will have that same access to life giving care.
