Headwaters Health Care Foundation Reaches Matching Gift Goal!
In November 2022 and throughout the holiday season, Headwaters Health Care Foundation challenged the community to raise $700,000 which would then be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Morningview Foundation
. On January 10th, 2023, Headwaters received the donation that put us over the goal, which was the largest match challenge for Headwaters Foundation ever.
The generosity of the community and commitment from the Morningview Foundation has allowed Headwaters to purchase equipment needed to continue to provide outstanding care, close to home, for our community. All gifts that were received in response to this challenge will be used to purchase vital medical equipment and upgrades for our hospital. The government does not provide funding for all of the vital medical equipment the hospital’s health care team needs to provide the best possible care.
A representative of the Morningview Foundation shared, "We are delighted that the community was so generous during these tough times. It really shows how valuable Headwaters is to the patients and their loved ones and we are thrilled to have been a part of this impressive effort!
K.C. Carruthers, Headwaters Foundation CEO stated, “We are blown away by the generosity of our community. The impact that this will have, helping provide exceptional care and saving lives of those who turn to us every day for their health care needs. The Morningview Foundation has shown leadership that will have a long-lasting impact for a healthy tomorrow.”
