Van Diest Medical Center Foundation Fund

The Van Diest Medical Center¬†Foundation was founded in 1996 to assist in extending the mission of Van Diest Medical Center “to enhance the lives of people in our community by providing exceptional, patient-centered healthcare.”

It is guided by a board of directors, comprised of individuals who live and work in Hamilton County. The Foundation board oversees the activities and distribution of funds received by the Foundation. Monetary gifts are used to purchase vital equipment, start up new services and contribute toward other projects as requested by the hospital. Every gift strengthens Van Diest Medical Center’s service to the community and is gratefully acknowledged.

In 2022, the Van Diest Medical Center Foundation Board opened a fund through the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation to make it easier for those looking to support the hospital. Donations can be made online, via a check, IRA rollovers, gifts of stock and other methods. 

Questions on giving can be directed to Lori Foster at Van Diest Medical Center or Darcy Swon at the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation. All donations are tax deductible.
