Dear Community Member,
I would like to thank you for making the decision to partner with the Memorial Hospital Foundation.
Your gifts help us continue the tradition of caring for our community. Memorial Hospital's legacy
of "Giving Back" is an important part of our heritage that began in 1925 when our founder,
Mrs. Hila C. Mills opened the Mills Maternity and Convalescent Home located on
South Main Street in Towanda. Giving back to our community has been and will continue
to be a natural part of what we do every day.
The mission of Memorial Hospital, Inc., a private nonprofit corporation, is to enhance
the quality of life in our community by providing quality healthcare services with integrity and
professionalism, in a safe, caring and financially responsible manner, while maintaining
the dignity of our patients and residents. In keeping with this mission, the Board of
Trustees established the Memorial Hospital Foundation in March 2003. The purpose of the
Foundation is to generate resources for the sustainability and advancement of healthcare
in the communities the hospital has the privilege to serve.
Your commitment of partnership with the Foundation plays a very strategic role
in Memorial Hospital's future. Charitable gifts will provide the necessary
resources to continue delivering exceptional health care services and programs to
enhance the hospitalís outreach to its patients and our community.
Thank you for your interest in your community hospital. We are fortunate to partner
with dynamic individuals like you whose integrity, hard work, generosity, and vision
continue to pave the way to make Memorial Hospital an integral part of our community.
Gary A. Baker
Memorial Hospital President & CEO
