Past Year’s Giving
How Your Donations Make a Difference
In 2018, the Ashland Community Hospital Foundation, received over $1.1 million in charitable contributions and endowment earnings. Your donations help improve hospital facilities, programs and services, and strengthen our existing endowments. We would like to thank all of our generous donors who made these gifts possible. Here are some of the highlights:
Established a new Innovation Fund, which will allow Asante Ashland to adapt to changes in healthcare.
Cardiac Care services were enhanced with the addition of new equipment and the creation of a dedicated EKG Room in the Emergency Department to serve over 600 patients each year in need of this critical test.
The Evans Family Comfort Room was created to enhance care for patients who are near the end of life and are not able to leave the hospital.
The William G. and Ruth T. Evans Endowed Nursing Scholarship awarded $105,000 in scholarships to local nursing students last year. The awards included $98,000 to 17 students enrolled in nursing programs at Oregon Health & Science University (Ashland Campus) and Rogue Community College.
