The Foundation and St. Martha’s Regional Hospital appreciate the people in our area that have given so generously over the years. This is truly a win-win situation in that the Foundation is able to make funds available for the hospital and the people that use the hospital get the best equipment possible to help treat them. We hope you will continue to support St. Martha’s Regional Hospital through a donation to the Foundation. Your contribution is important to help us provide the best possible health care.
