Bladen County Hospital Foundation

Who We Are

Bladen County Hospital Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Bladen County Hospital. All funds donated to Bladen County Hospital Foundation are dedicated to programs and services at Bladen County Hospital.

Bladen County Hospital Foundation was founded in 1994 as a non-profit organization to serve the hospital and citizens of Bladen County. The Foundation supports Bladen County Hospital through equipment purchases, community benefits and patient and family support. The ultimate goal of Bladen County Hospital Foundation is to enhance the quality of health care in our community.

Why Give

In the ever-changing healthcare environment, hospitals face the many challenges of providing patients with exceptional healthcare in the most cost-effective way. By supporting Bladen County Hospital Foundation, you not only help sustain ongoing programs and operations but you also make new exciting improvements possible. The programs funded make a difference in the patient’s experience and their healing process.

There are many areas that a foundation can help support. Since there have been cuts in hospital funding on both state and federal levels throughout the years, hospitals have trouble securing financial support. To meet financial demands, hospitals turn to their foundations for assistance. The fact is, every patient who visits Bladen County Hospital is touched by our donors.

Help make our community better! Donate online or by mail.
