We're committed to secure, manage & allocate funds for the enhancement of healthcare programs & projects for the residents of McPherson County.
The McPherson Healthcare Foundation, Inc. was formed and chartered in October of 1986 as a 501c(3) organization. Its purpose is to secure and expend financial aid for the operations, maintenance and expansion of the health facilities and services associated with McPherson Hospital, and to otherwise contribute to the development of improved health care in McPherson County.
Currently, on behalf of McPherson Hospital, the McPherson Healthcare Foundation is coordinating fundraising efforts to secure $5 million in gifts and pledges for Phase 1 of the Caring for the Future Campaign. The hospital kicked off the campaign in July 2014 and has raised $3 million from donor support, fundraising events like the annual golf tournament and fall auction as well as the participation of several charitable foundations.
McPherson Hospital is critical not only to maintaining the health and well-being of our citizens, but modern healthcare facilities provide essential infrastructure to secure business and industry.
The best course to ensure a prosperous future for the city of McPherson and McPherson County is to implement a multi-phase, multi-year facility plan that will:
• Provide residents with high-quality facilities for their healthcare needs.
• Assist in the recruitment and retention of physicians.
• Alleviate the need for local residents travel to other communities for care.
• Provide a broader range of services to residents.
• Maintain a competitive edge in recruitment of new businesses to the community.
