Over $5 million raised to support the hospital

Mountains Community Hospital Foundation is a 501(c)(3)

MISSION – WHY WE EXIST
To create philanthropic opportunities and build lifelong relationships with community members, in order to raise funds to support Mountains Community Hospital.

Foundation Support is Vital to the Health of Our Hospital

Many rural community hospitals are little more than first aid stations, and in this cost-cutting environment, many have had to end services altogether, forcing remote populations to face long drives when they need medical attention. However, thanks to gifts from community members and charitable foundations, Mountains Community Hospital is not only surviving, but thriving, and continuing to add services for the people who depend on it.

The Foundation has provided more than $5 million in patient care support in the past 10 years. Recently we have funded much-needed advanced equipment and projects such as:

  • Digital Mammography machine for the Radiology Department

  • Toshiba Aquilion Prime 80-slice CT Scanner for the Radiology Department

  • Toshiba Aplio 300 Ultrasound Machine for the Radiology Department

  • 12-seat activity van and truck for our Skilled Nursing Facility’s residents

  • Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for our Skilled Nursing Facility

  • Fully adjustable electric beds for our Skilled Nursing Facility

  • Financial support for $6 million seismic strengthening project mandated by the state

  • Cardiac, telemetry and vital signs monitors for the Emergency and Medical/Surgical Departments and Post Anesthesia Care Unit

  • BIOFIRE® FILMARRAY® system for our Laboratory

  • Omnicell medication dispensing system for our Pharmacy

  • Bench and lending library for our patient waiting area

  • Mobile C-arm for our Operating Room

  • State-of-the-art gurneys for our Emergency Department
