How Donations Have Helped


Every piece of equipment purchased by the Foundation is a direct result of the dedication of our donors. The donations are received through special events, planned giving, general donations as well as directed donations.

In 2018-19, in total–the Foundation committed over $1 million dollars to support equipment, capital infrastructure and education for staff and physicians at St. Martha’s Regional Hospital.
