Health Foundation

Our mission is to improve the health and wellness of the families in our communities through philanthropy.


The Margaret Mary Health Foundation was established in 2012 to ensure the hospital’s legacy of quality and compassionate care continues for generations. We engage the community as partners in health improvement and raise funds to enhance hospital programs, services and technology. Thanks to our generous donors, the Foundation has been able to provide a variety of grants, a few of which are listed below:

  • Financial assistance to nurses pursuing BSN degrees
  • Swaddle blankets and new bassinets for our maternity unit
  • Technology for our simulation lab, home health and cardiopulmonary departments
  • New CPR equipment
  • An entertainment center for our pediatric inpatients
  • iPads and infusion chairs for oncology patients
  • A paved walking trail for community use on our Six Pine Ranch campus
  • Funding for a Lock Your Meds campaign providing medication lock boxes to help with drug abuse prevention efforts in our community
  • Age-appropriate books for children, ages 0-5, at their well-check visits

Grateful Patient Program

Maybe it was a smile, kind word or gesture which brought you or your loved one comfort. At MMH, patients often ask if there is a way for them to recognize caregivers who provided exceptional care during their stay. Through our Grateful Patient program, we invite you to make a monetary donation to the Health Foundation in your caregiver’s name. Learn more about the Grateful Patient Program.
