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 $570,000 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.
The annual Casino Night fundraiser is held each year on the 1st Saturday in March. The evening features a meal, cash bar, wine pull, live & silent auctions, and guests can try their luck at the Blackjack, Roulette, and Craps tables as well as other games. Attendees are given 'casino cash' for playing which can be used at the end of the evening for prize drawings. Each year the Casino Night features a different theme.
Start looking for your flapper dresses and fedoras because we couldn't pass up a Roaring 20's theme for our 2020 event to be held Saturday, March 7th, in St. Gregory's Parish Hall in Marysville.
2018 Year-End Donor Appeal
In 2018 the CMH Foundation Board of Trustees agreed to request funding for a single item - 3D Mammography Upgrade - which would be their largest request to date. Support from area donors raised $67,000 but still left the Foundation approximately two-thirds short of its goal. As 2018 came to a close CMH Foundation received word from area businessman Don Landoll, president and owner of Landoll Corporation, of his desire to fund the remainder of the mammography request. On January 16, 2019, Mr. Landoll toured the radiology department and presented the Foundation with a check for $100,000. On 5/29/19 CMH administered its first 3D mammography.
CMH Foundation cannot thank its donors enough for their faithful support of the hospital. They help make a difference and change lives!
