Giving to Community Hospital

Motivation comes in many forms

Philanthropic contributions are crucial to Community Hospital’s health. They help pay for patients who can’t pay their own way, for new technology to diagnose diseases earlier and treat them more effectively, and for the overall environment, designed specifically to promote healing.

Who gives? Patients pleased with their care. Neighbors who want to invest in the community’s well-being. Staff members who believe in Community Hospital’s mission. Here we will spotlight a few specific donors and thank all the rest through our annual honor roll of contributors for 2008.

MAURINE CHURCH COBURN SOCIETY

This society was created to honor, recognize, and encourage life income gifts and bequests to Community Hospital. Planned gifts represent a substantial resource to ensure a long-term, stable financial future for your community hospital.
