Fundraising to Impact Healthcare in Our Community

Throughout the year, Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation raises funds to support the programs and services Mile Bluff provides to the community.

The funds raised are put toward community events, scholarship programs and equipment purchases.

As a not-for-profit organization, the foundation wants to be transparent with donors about how funds are used. Below you will find the organization's annual reports as well as a list of our approved equipment purchases for the coming year.

Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation is grateful for the support of donors and the community!
