Our Foundation

Wood County Hospital opened in 1951 thanks to a major contribution from Fred Uhlman, Sr. and many individuals in the community who saw the need for local quality medical care.
Our philanthropic-minded community continued to contribute to the hospital’s success through bequest and other gift vehicles. Philanthropy in the

Wood County community is a major building block of Wood County Hospital.

Wood County Hospital Foundation was established in 1987 to help secure a legacy of excellent medical care for our community. Through a generous gift from Ruth and Rhea Keil the Foundation was born and today it strives to keep stride with ever changing technologies and innovations that enhance patient care at the hospital.

The need for community support has never been greater. Only through the financial investment of committed donors can Wood County Hospital provide excellent, leading-edge medical care in a warm and healing environment.

"Vision for Tomorrow" Capital Campaign

Together we did it! The Vision for Tomorrow capital campaign was successful in raising over $2 million. More than 500 gifts were made to the campaign, with the Foundation matching every gift. “As healthcare reform continues to evolve, philanthropy will play a key role in the future of Wood County Hospital,” said Stan Korducki, WCH president. “We hold all of our donors in high regard and are grateful for the commitments they have made to WHC to make this campaign so successful.”
