Heritage Health Care Foundation

Mission Statement

"To assist in caring for patients and families by obtaining support for its medical and educational programs throughout the region."

Foundation Support

The Westbrook Heritage Health Care Foundation has a deep interest in promoting career choices in the medical field. Your support of the Foundation provides the means for which scholarship money is granted to local individuals who have chosen a career in the medical field. In recent years The Heritage Health Care Foundation has provided scholarships to graduating high school seniors. These scholarship contributions encourage community members to pursue their goals and in turn, return to their local facility and support health care locally.

The Foundation has provided $35,000 to assist in the purchase of a much needed Chemistry Analyzer for the hospital/clinic laboratory and $97,500 to purchase a Colonosope for the hospital's surgery department. The Foundation also contributed to the completion of offices and meeting rooms located in the Peterson Estates addition.

Scholarship Support

In May of 2013, two high school graduating seniors pursuing an education in the health care field were each awarded a $250.00 scholarship.  This year's recipients were: Jamie Gibson from Red Rock Central and Darian Gilb from Westbrook Walnut Grove.
