The Foundation has several donation options including two that allow donors to honor loved ones and/or the medical professionals who take care of them. Honor donations make a positive difference in the lives of our patients by enhancing the medical care provided by our staff.

Grateful Patient Program

Patients of Power County Hospital District often ask how they can honor and thank the wonderful doctors, nurses, therapists, medical technicians, and staff who care for them and their loved ones when they seek medical attention. A gift to the Grateful Patient Program is a meaningful way to do that. Your support helps the District purchase the things that improve the quality of healthcare delivered: state-of-the art equipment, education materials for patients, and home-like amenities for nursing home residents.

When you make a Grateful Patient donation, the District honors those you wish to acknowledge with a letter of congratulations and an announcement in the monthly employee newsletter.

Living Memorial Gift

When a friend or family member passes away, those who remain behind sometimes request that contributions made in memory of their loved one be given to the donor’s charity of choice. We ask you to consider making Power County Hospital District Foundation your charity of choice on these occasions. A Living Memorial Gift made to the Foundation is a testimonial to the meaningfulness of the life that has passed on. It is a truly caring way to honor those you love and hold dear while making a tangible investment in local healthcare.

Donation Letter Campaign

Each November the Foundation mails out donation letter requests to the residents of Power County.

The PCHD Endowment

Think of the PCHD Endowment as a community healthcare savings account that earns interest on donation dollars. The interest is used to fund facility upgrades and major equipment purchases. Since original donation dollars are never spent, the endowment is always earning interest, ensuring that the Foundation has a steady stream of revenue available to assist Power County Hospital District in meeting its infrastructure and equipment needs.

Employee Donation Program

It’s simple to support Foundation efforts to raise funds to purchase equipment and materials for the hospital, nursing home, family clinic, and physical therapy clinic. Just sign up for a payroll deduction in any amount you choose. For your convenience, Human Resources will update your deduction amount twice per year in February and July. If you have questions about your donation in the interim, please contact HR at 226-3200 ext. 171. It’s a gift that keeps on giving!

Employee donations helped the Foundation purchase several items including a blood coagulation analyzer, industrial dishwasher, colon cancer test kits, a mobile vital signs monitor, an infant scale, a hematology analyzer, a defibrillator, a laryngoscope, stretcher, a hi lo physical exam table, a medical freezer, paint and decorations for the long-term care dining room, and a call light system.
