For over 100 years, Washington County Hospital and Clinics has been providing healthcare services to Washington County and surrounding community residents.

Washington County Hospital Foundation

Washington County Hospital and Clinics is a vital health care and long-term care facility because of the vision, dedication, and philanthropic commitment of area residents all throughout our hospital's history. The hospital started with a gift of an 11-acre tract of land, donated by William Perry Wells. Today, the WCH Foundation is working hard to keep the spirit of giving alive.

Incorporated in July of 1995, the WCH Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. As the fundraising entity of WCHC, the foundation serves to encourage, accept, and steward all public and private gifts, grants, and contributions to make a difference at WCHC. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors who carry out the necessary duties of the organization.

Investing in the Future of WCHC

The Foundation offers a broad range of gift opportunities for donors who wish to make a difference at WCHC and help us continue to invest in our future of local healthcare. To make a donation, please contact Samantha Meyer at 319-863-2055.
