Your bequest would provide the continued support that is necessary to meet the growing healthcare needs in our community. So you, your family and loved ones will have the latest technology and top quality care for years to come.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to include Wood County Hospital Foundation in your will

If you have already made arrangements for the hospital to be included in your estate plans, please let us know so you can be recognized during your lifetime. Or it is very simple to update your will with provisions for the hospital.

What are some of the benefits of making a bequest:

  • Provide for your family after your death.
  • Distribute your assets according to your wishes
  • Save on estate taxes with proper planning
  • Leave a legacy without giving up assets

There are many ways to prepare for your future that can benefit your family and the hospital versus paying a large sum of estate taxes. Ask about our educational programs with local tax professionals regarding financial planning that take place at the Hospital throughout the year.

If you have already recognized Wood County Hospital with a planned gift or want more information, please contact Cristy Gray, Foundation Executive Director, at 419.373.7627 or grayc@woodcountyhospital.org at your convenience.

Paver Campaign, Memorials and Tributes

- You can memorialize a loved one by making a gift to the Foundation in their name.  In this same way, you may honor a special individual who has made a difference in your life.

The new addition that opened in January 2010 gave the Hospital the opportunity to create a beautiful paver patio surrounded by benches and trees. The purpose of this area is to perpetuate the names of loved ones and friends for whom a Memorial or Tribute Gift can be made. By giving a donation you can further a cause you believe in while creating a lasting memory etched on a brick, a plaque or bench as a thoughtful remembrance.

Tributes could honor that special doctor, nurse, health-care provider, friend or volunteer – a wonderful way to say “Thank you for caring.”

If you are interested in purchasing a paver, bench or planter, please print off and print the attached form and mail to:
