Our Foundation

Wood County Hospital opened in 1951 thanks to a major contribution from Fred Uhlman, Sr. and others in the community who saw the need for local, quality medical care. 

Wood County Hospital Foundation was established in 1987 to help ensure that legacy of medical excellence. Starting with a generous gift from Ruth and Rhea Keil, the Foundation strives to keep pace with ever-changing technologies and innovations that enhance patient care. All Foundation efforts reflect our core values of accountability, stewardship, integrity, excellence, commitment and respect. 

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.

Ensuring we meet our future healthcare challenges

The Foundation is a separate 501(c)3 that raises philanthropic funds in support of major construction projects, equipment purchases and facility renovations. Our purpose is to obtain charitable contributions, manage those gifts and disburse them under the direction of a volunteer board of directors, from the community, who set policy and direct our activities.

All gifts donated to the Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
