Madison Regional Health Foundation

A Message from the Foundation Director

You live and work here because you prefer the quality of life Madison has to offer you and your family. You like the pace here. You like having everything you need close to home. Our staff at MRHS has meaningful connections with the people we care for and the communities we serve. Our work becomes personal when we provide care to our neighbors and friends. The Foundation’s goal is to ensure that our community’s healthcare needs are being met locally, for now and for the future.

We all look forward to resuming our normal lives. In the meantime, isn’t it comforting to know that in such challenging times, we can pull together as a community to care for one another and work together to move forward?

Thank you for believing that our mission of supporting access to quality healthcare close to home is important and worthy of your support!

About Us

The Madison Regional Health Foundation was established in 2013 to promote and advocate for local health care philanthropy. The Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible.

The Foundation is building an endowment to address the future needs of the MRHS and the Madison community. Through this endowment, your gifts will have an even greater impact. Contributions can be made to the areas of:

Future Needs

Established to ensure that long-term goals can be achieved, the Future Needs fund focuses on supporting projects that address the changing needs of MRHS and surrounding communities. As our communities grow, medical needs change, and technology advances, your gift will help to keep quality, progressive health care close to home for our patients.

Scholarship & Recruitment

Through scholarship and recruitment initiatives, the Foundation wants to ensure that you can invest in those who want to provide high quality care for our area. The Scholarship and Recruitment fund will provide assistance to those wishing to return to or start their careers in Madison at MRHS.

Health & Well-Being

MRHS is dedicated to providing the area with health services and education, some at no cost to the individual. Through our community needs assessment, we have learned that there is an interest in preventative care and other well-being areas. Your contribution will allow us to expand our services and educational opportunities for our patients and the community through this fund.

Our Foundation, Your Legacy

Donors to MRHF have already impacted patients' lives in creating therapeutic and comforting environments in the facility. The stained glass within the chapel/meditation room and benches throughout the healing garden were made possible through gifts from our donors. We have purchased state-of-the-art equipment like the electric parallel bars in physical therapy and have awarded scholarships to future pharmacists.



The Madison Regional Health Foundation exists to support the Madison Regional Health System and the healthcare needs of the greater Madison community. The Foundation will seek donations and raise funds to be utilized for capital improvements, enhancements to patient care, technology upgrades and to otherwise fulfill Madison Regional Health System's mission of healthcare philanthropy in the Madison area.
