We’re here for the health of our community.
We started the Hancock Health Foundation in 1982 to support the advancement of health care and wellness throughout Hancock County. Our awards, scholarships, and other efforts support the ongoing health of Hancock County residents and address their changing health needs. We also help to raise funds for needed capital projects, such as our coming renovation of the Hancock Women+Children maternity unit.
Hancock Regional Hospital does not receive tax dollars, so the Foundation’s work is critical in bridging funding gaps, providing care for those without resources or insurance, and continuing our outreach and population health programs.
Your gift of support to the Foundation is most welcome. If you are passionate about promoting world-class quality healthcare services in Hancock County, you should consider becoming a member of Patrons of Health.
Hancock Health is a non-profit organization and does not receive tax dollars, yet we care for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. In fact, Hancock Health writes off approximately $1.5 million in uncompensated or “charity care” each month. Philanthropy efforts of the Foundation help to bridge budget gaps, support ongoing community outreach efforts and care for those with limited resources or without insurance. We are proud to support the advancement of health care and wellness in the communities we serve. Our 2019 Annual Report outlines the support the Hancock Health Foundation provides to the hospital and our community.
