The Health Foundation was established in 2012 to engage the community as partners in health improvement and raise funds to enhance hospital programs, services and technology.
Ways to Give
Although monetary donations are always appreciated, there are many other ways you can give to the Foundation. Get information about our Grateful Patient program and other opportunities.
Making a planned gift to the Foundation is a wonderful way to support the health and wellness of our communities while accomplishing your own personal, financial, and philanthropic goals.
GRANT: School Telehealth
Telehealth uses technology to deliver care at a distance. Essentially, a child will have a 'virtual office visit' with a provider via a secure and confidential channel using computer cameras, telehealth equipment and speakers.
GRANT: Hope Fund
In 2019, the Hope Fund was created to relieve financial burdens of cancer patients in need. Examples include indirect costs associated with needing cancer treatment, like utilities, transportation, food or caregiving.
GRANT: Safe Haven Baby Box
In part to a grant from the Foundation, the hospital recently installed a Safe Haven Baby Box which allows a mother to safely, securely and anonymously surrender her newborn if she’s unable to provide care. Funded by the William A. & Martha H. Hillenbrand Foundation, the Baby Box has been installed on the exterior wall of the hospital which faces Mitchell Avenue.

Maybe it was a smile, kind word or gesture which brought you or your loved one comfort. At MMH, patients often ask if there is a way for them to recognize caregivers who provided exceptional care during their stay. Through our Grateful Patient program, we invite you to make a monetary donation to the Health Foundation in your caregiver's name.MAKE A DONATION

Why do I donate?
Losing a child may be the hardest life event a parent will ever experience, but with the passage of time and incredible support from family and friends, local parents Tom and Cami Muto have slowly begun to heal. In 2019, the couple lost their 18-month-old daughter, Rowan, to a traumatic, unexpected accident. To keep her memory alive, the family made a donation to the Health Foundation in support of the hospital's new reflection garden.
"When we heard Margaret Mary was adding a reflection garden, we knew we wanted to support it," said Cami. "Grief is different for everyone, and being surrounded by nature often brings about peace. We'll never understand why we lost Rowan, but the garden reminds us we are all a part of the circle of life."
