Memorial Foundation

We all are inspired by something that opens our minds to endless possibilities. Passion creates our will to not “just live,” but to excel in those things we hold close. At Klickitat Valley Health, our passion is caring for people, and not just when they are sick. By being an active partner in our community, we are able to give back through education, prevention, support, and sponsorships. We are a nonprofit hospital owned solely by the community we are committed to serve.

In 1989, KVH put another building block in place to support our community, The KVH Memorial Foundation. This Foundation is a nonprofit foundation supporting the mission of Klickitat Valley Health in providing compassionate care with excellent outcomes for our patients.

Independent community hospitals are vital to the health and well-being of the communities they serve. KVH has been a solid member of the community since 1946. As healthcare has evolved, small, independent community hospitals have faced a daunting future. As a result of the ever-changing funding programs and regulations, many small hospitals have merged with larger healthcare systems.

Even though KVH faces these same challenges, we are committed to being an independent hospital with the freedom to make the best healthcare decisions for our community. With the help of donors like you, the foundation can provide necessary assistance to Klickitat Valley Health through equipment purchases, service line expansion and upgraded technology.

The Foundation also provides opportunities for health education scholarships, and services that promote healthy lifestyles. By supporting the Foundation’s educational activities, volunteerism and fundraising, we can all help our Public Health District remain competitive in the marketplace and succeed as a quality rural healthcare provider.
