Culbertson Memorial Hospital and its clinics are constantly focused on meeting the healthcare needs of our local communities. However, like other rural, not-for-profit healthcare facilities, we must depend on charitable gifts to help us continue to provide excellent care with the most advanced technology.

You can make a difference and influence the quality of local health care by providing financial assistance to the Culbertson Memorial Hospital Foundation. The CMH Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation that is separate from the hospital. Gifts to the Foundation are used for updating Culbertson Memorial Hospital facilities, equipment, and programs. The CMH Foundation board exercises prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities and assures donors that their gifts will be used exclusively for the purpose they designate, and will not be combined with Culbertson Memorial Hospital operating funds. Donors are assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

Your financial support can take many forms, which are covered in this section of our website. If you have questions or want more information on how you can help improve the level of healthcare in your area, please contact CMH Foundation Director Tim Ward by phone at (217) 248-7511.
