THE FOUNDATION AT MURRAY-CALLOWAY COUNTY HOSPITAL
Murray-Calloway County Hospital has been serving the region since 1910. The hospital is dedicated to providing patients in our community with the best quality healthcare in our region while maintaining a non-profit, community-owned status.
In 2008, Murray-Calloway County Hospital created The Foundation at Murray-Calloway County Hospital (formerly the Endowment for Healthcare) to improve the quality, access and affordability of healthcare in our region. Its purpose is to advance the mission and vision of your public, not-for-profit hospital.
The Foundation has launched a new campaign called “Enduring Hope,” this campaign will raise funds for a new regional cancer center on the campus of Murray-Calloway County Hospital.
Everyone has been touched by cancer in some way, whether it has been a friend, a parent, a spouse, a child, or even you. Cancer affects more than 3 out of 10 people in Kentucky alone which is higher than the national average.
The goal of our new Cancer Center is to help change this statistic. Please consider giving to the “Enduring Hope” campaign today, and be a part of the change.
ANNA MAE OWEN RESIDENTIAL HOSPICE HOUSE
The Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House opened in November of 2016 and provides a place where terminally ill patients can end life’s journey in a comfortable home-like setting. It offers an important option for people who are in need of end-of-life care and cannot, or prefer not to die at home, in a hospital, or nursing home. Residential Hospice Houses offer a variety of services to meet the physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of its residents. Your donation will help us to support the daily operational needs of this facility.
The Dr. Jan Weaver Music and Memory program at Plainview Skilled Nursing Facility and Rehab supports the training of employees to help them work with dementia and Alzheimer patients by providing high quality, person-centered care through digital music technology. These employees will identify those residents who could benefit from the program and work with them to provide iPods with personalized playlists tailored for each one. Plainview Skilled Nursing Facility is just one of seven facilities in Kentucky to be Music & Memory certified.
