Keep Us Close Campaign

Keep Us Close Campaign

Our Goal

We currently have a goal to raise $3.5 million for the purchase of an MRI and to expand diagnostic imaging services and facilities in our community. But beyond this, we need to make sure our local hospital receives the funds it needs to buy new equipment, increase services and complete facility upgrades that go beyond government support.

We must recognize our hospital is more than just a building. It’s a lifeline for the health and well-being of our loved ones. When we invest in our local hospital, we invest in our children, our parents, our friends and ourselves. It is a testament to the strength of our community. And it shows how together, we can all do our part to keep healthcare close to home.
