JTD Hospital Foundation Mission:

To secure funds for the benefit of Joint Township District Memorial Hospital's efforts to meet the healthcare needs of our communities.

Supporting a Tradition of Caring

The Foundation is the vehicle for community-wide support for a full range of community and patient-based services with funding efforts focused on programs, services and equipment.

Since 2008, the Foundation has spearheaded the renovation of the TCU/IRU Units on 6th floor, and Medical/Pediatrics on 2nd floor, raising over 1 million dollars to match the same amount from JTDMH to update and renovate these areas.

The Foundation is currently reaching out to the surrounding communities, raising funds to renovate Ambulatory Surgery. Please call the Foundation office if you are interested in learning more about how you can help with this important project. Over a million dollars has been raised towards this effort.


Why Support Joint Township District Memorial Hospital?

foundation-handsDedicated 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.

Each year contributions range from a few dollars to thousands of dollars and every gift is important because it helps provide for the improvement of someone’s healthcare needs.

It might be you, your family or someone you know—it involves the collective talents and resources to provide the right care, at the right time, and at the right cost.

Good healthcare doesn’t just happen—Joint Township Hospital has always provided the highest level of care at an affordable cost, but today’s cost pressures are making dramatic changes, decreasing government aid and increasing charity care.

Private support by our community has continually made Joint Township Hospital stronger. These gifts help provide that margin of excellence to acquire new facilities and equipment. In fact, contributions give life to new programs and services that may have little or no other means of funding.

Patient revenue, alone, cannot provide for the ever-increasing needs for our community.

The Foundation’s Board of Directors has designated these areas for special philanthropic support:

  • Annual Fund -- Gifts designated for the greatest need.
  • Renovation of Ambulatory Surgery
  • Nursing & Healthcare Scholarships
  • Hospice
The Foundation will respond to unmet needs or new opportunities that arise for the Hospital. If you are interested in Endowment—building for uninterrupted future support, please contact us.
