Ways to Give
Every dollar you give makes a real difference. Just this year, your gifts are allowing us to renovate an inpatient wing of the medical center, creating 20 private rooms and baths. We are building a state-of-the-art medical library on par with research institutions for our physicians and expanding our outreach to caring for the indigent in our community.
