Munson Health
What We Do

If you stand anywhere on the medical campuses at Munson Medical Center or Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital, you can see concrete evidence on how donor dollars improve health care. The Munson Healthcare Regional Foundation and Paul Oliver Foundation enjoy long traditions of generous support from community members - support that continues to secure and advance health care services in northern Michigan. We believe everyone in our community should have access to high-quality health services and philanthropy plays a prominent role in what we can accomplish.

The role of our foundations is two-fold: We help pay for health services, equipment, and programs that might otherwise go unfunded, and we help community members sustain or enhance programs that match their values, allowing them to make a real and significant difference in the lives of others.

The Munson Healthcare Regional Foundation and Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital Foundation serve:

We administer 50 donor-supported funds and use them to award grants for projects and needs. Sometimes the grants are large, such as support for Munson Hospice House that requires more than $300,000 a year. Sometimes, the need is small, such as the $241 one uninsured family needed to have a child’s hearing aid repaired.

Recent examples of donor supported projects and programs at Munson Medical Center include the Webber Heart Center, the Cowell Family Cancer Center, the Daniel and Debra Edson Cardiac Diagnostic Suite, the Smith Family Breast Health Center, the Biederman Cancer Treatment Center, the Kid’s Creek Restoration Project, Munson's state-of-the-art Emergency Department, Munson Hospice House, and the Munson Manor Hospitality House. At Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital, projects include the Elizabeth C. Hosick Dialysis Center, the Wayne and Joan Webber Imaging Center, the Leona E. Whitman Emergency Department, and the Betsie Hosick Health and Fitness Center. 

You can read about current projects, such as a new cancer center, and the wonderful people who support them in our Focus newsletter.
