Community Memorial Healthcare opened its doors to the public in March 1958. The opening of the hospital was made possible by the generous donations of community members. Today, that tradition of working with the community continues and ensures that CMH is able to provide the best health care possible to its patients, families and the community.
CMH Foundation was created to serve as the fundraising mechanism of Community Memorial Healthcare. As such, the foundation proudly supports the health care needs of the citizens of Marshall and surrounding counties. Dollars raised are granted to the hospital for capital projects such as new construction, renovation, and equipment; not for operational costs. Since 2012 the Foundation has granted over $744,000 to the hospital for equipment and program needs.
As healthcare resources become scarce and costs to acquire the latest technology grow, charitable contributions help CMH to expand on the services it provides. We invite you to explore the ways your gifts can change lives and make a difference in our community.
NEW IN 2021! The CMH Foundation annual gala and casino night will be held in the fall. Join us Saturday, October 30, 2021 for an evening of fun and philanthropy featuring a buffet meal, open bar, and live & silent auctions. Try your luck at the Blackjack, Roulette, and Craps tables. All ticket holders will receive one entry for an end-of-night drawing and get 'casino cash' for playing games, so go ahead and bet big! We will also be unveiling the equipment requests to be featured in the 2021 Year-End Appeal and guests will have the opportunity to pre-select an item for funding ahead of the public release.
The theme this year is Black & White and is our mix of classic elegance with a hint of eeriness. Guests are encouraged to dress in cocktail or formal attire of black, white, or a combination of the two.
Save the date for our 2021 event Saturday, October 30th, in St. Gregory's Parish Hall in Marysville.
2020 Year-End Donor Appeal
The hospital, like everyone else in 2020, was faced with many challenges. We are proud of our staff, who adapted to the changes that took place, not only in their home life, but their work life as well. We are equally proud of our community and humbled by their amazing support. Our donors, once again, opened their hearts and their checkbooks and responded to our year-end appeal with great generosity. The foundation was able to fulfill over $60K in equipment requests for facilities, nursing, occupational, speech, and physical therapies, radiology, respiratory therapy, and surgery.
CMH Foundation cannot thank its donors enough for their faithful support of the hospital. They help make a difference and change lives!
