Making world-class health care and facilities easily accessible to individuals, families and especially children living in Central Appalachia.

 “There is nothing more rewarding than building relationships, finding out what an individual’s goals are and then helping them see their legacy fulfilled.  That’s what we do!” 

— Bradley Burck

 “There are a lot of programs the hospitals provides that cost a lot of money, but for which there is no reimbursement.  How do you provide those things?  That’s where the Foundation comes into play.” 

— Kristi Arrowood

A Family of Healthcare Foundations

There is an intricate relationship between good health, happiness and hope.  When health fails, the other elements in this delicate balance suffer. 

The Mountain Health Network Foundations – including Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation and St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation – are committed to improving the health and well-being of more than one million children and adults in 23 counties in West Virginia, southern Ohio and eastern Kentucky.

Through our Foundations, we provide the means for friends like you to play a role in helping meet the unique needs of people in the region.  

Through a variety of special programs and the unique missions of the Mountain Health Foundations, you can play a significant role in the lives of individuals and families who need assistance.  Learn more about how you can be involved by clicking the button below…

How You Make a Difference

There is no greater feeling than knowing your contribution matters. That you have made a difference. While there are a great many causes that are dependent upon financial support, there is nothing – nothing – that provides greater satisfaction than knowing you have made a significant difference in people’s lives.

As you invest your personal and financial resources in one of the Mountain Health Network Foundations, you impact those we currently serve and those who will be dependent upon help like yours in the coming years.

Author and philanthropist Wanda Henderson sums this up beautifully:

 “The seeds that we sow will continue to touch lives because the ripple effect of goodness is multiplied many times as the years go by.”
