Partnering for a Healthier Community

For more than four decades, the Jackson Hospital Foundation has channeled support from River Region residents, businesses and industries to expand medical services and facilities on the hospital campus.

Donors invest in the community's health by helping to provide emerging technology for the hospital's physicians and caregivers. Recent gifts include the $3 million renovation of the hospital's Family Birth Center.

The not-for-profit foundation has targeted several areas for expansion based on a growing demand for patient services. Tax-deductible gifts may target specific centers of excellence, such as cardiovascular services at the Jackson Hospital Heart Center, the Family Birth Center or the McGough Oncology Center.

The Touchstone Society annual giving program offers several levels of membership and provides the foundation with ongoing support each year. In addition to helping the hospital enhance services in many areas, donors receive special benefits through their participation.
