What We Support
Here are just some of the ways the AGH Foundation funding is used, as we “invest in the health of our community”:
The Foundation has taken first steps in supporting this vital service through funding for mammography screenings for low-income women.
The new Allegan Neighbors Fund, to provide meaningful assistance for individuals and families without the adequate means to afford the necessary health care they need.
The new Touches of Home Fund provides added quality of life amenities in our patient rooms and other areas of the hospital. We seek to enhance the patient experience and foster positive interaction between patients and their loved ones.
Scholarship Funds for Allegan General Hospital Employees, and for area High School Students Pursuing Health Care Studies in Higher Education. Special funds named for Schuyler Mellen, Marie Hall and Debra Rae Daniels help to support the scholarship programs available through the AGH Foundation.
Investments in our new Spirit of Women program, and the growth of our outreach efforts, health screenings, and health care services for women and their families.
Wellness programs for individuals and families we have the privilege of serving, including healthy eating and nutrition, exercise, smoking cessation programs, workplace initiatives, etc. A dedicated fund honoring Alice C. Webb helps to support these wellness programs.
Those who knew and loved Marie established a fund within Allegan General Hospital Foundation to help others advance their knowledge and skills in nursing.
An award from this fund is announced every spring to assist a deserving individual pursuing a Master’s Degree.
An investment in our children is an investment in our future, in our community, and in the whole world.
New Equipment for our Patients, as we increase our efficiency and capability to provide state-of-the-art care close to home. We recently purchased new exercise equipment for Cardiac Rehabilitation, and new diagnostic equipment to screen for circulation problems in the lower extremities.
Funding for New Program and Facility Development at Allegan General Hospital, growing our ability to care and serve, enhancing our technology, and constantly improving our care environments.
Funding to Worthwhile Community Health Care and Human Services Providers, such as the new Memory Care residence at the Allegan County Medical Care Facility, and Automatic Electronic Defibrillators (AED) for emergency responders in the community.
