Celebration of Giving April 21, 2015

At this event we thank our benefactors, Giving Society members and medical staff for their support. We also present the hospital our annual payout from our endowment fund.  We are happy to announce that in 2015, our annual Endowment payout exceeded $500,000.  These funds are greatly needed by our hospital to offset operations.
