The Hospital Foundation of Decatur County


Web Mission

Since 1992, as a 501(c)3 organization, the Hospital Foundation of Decatur County has assisted friends, neighbors and families by supporting the Decatur County Memorial Hospital’s vision of providing the best healthcare for our community.  We bridge the gaps that frequently exist in rural facilities when providing:

  • Care for the under-insured
  • Screenings, health fairs & information
  • Facility improvements and expansions
  • Equipment and technology upgrades
  • Staff development and recruitment

 Every dollar stays locally, keeping the benefits close to home…

From Our Director

We deeply appreciate your interest in our Hospital Foundation. Through its support of healthcare initiatives at Decatur County Memorial Hospital the Hospital Foundation has a history of making a difference in the healthcare of our community. However, its impact depends on the involvement of people like you!  DCMH provides a level of distinctive service that is unparalleled in larger facilities. In fact, Progressive Farmer Magazine named Decatur County one of the top 5 in the nation when it comes to “getting it right” with rural healthcare.  In addition, we’ve twice been named one of the top 20 Critical Access Hospitals in the nation.While we frequently boast the “Quality Care You Want. Close By.” our staff brings it to life. In addition, the wide range of services offered is impressive and growing. Yet, keeping pace in a rural facility is a constant challenge and that’s where you can help.We invite you to help us meet the challenge by considering a contribution to our Foundation. We pride ourselves in working with donors to find the right vehicle for their philanthropy. Give us a call, drop us an e-mail, or stop by our office in the Hospital and we’ll be happy to discuss the options with you and give you a tour of our facility.
