Why Support Joint Township District Memorial Hospital?

Dedicated in May of 1953 to the memory of area service men serving in WWII, it began as a 50-bed hospital. Ever since the first patient was admitted, contributions have supported the tradition of caring.

Because the Joint Township District Memorial Hospital is a nonprofit hospital, it treats all patients, regardless of their ability to pay, and supports programs that enhance health and wellness throughout our community. By contributing to the Foundation, you can help ensure that Joint Township District Memorial Hospital is able to continue to fulfill its mission of delivering outstanding healthcare for years to come.

When you give to the JTD Hospital Foundation, you are contributing to the health of your community. With the generosity of our donors, Joint Township District memorial Hospital is better able to provide the necessary facilities, equipment, and care for every patient.

Gifts to the JTD Hospital Foundation can be designated to the areas that you are most interested in, or can be made in memory or in honor of a loved one. Gifts can be made immediately or through planned giving. No matter how you choose to contribute to the Foundation, how big or small your gift, it will make a positive impact in our community, saving and enhancing lives - and healing those who are in need.
