The Rockingham Health Care Foundation provides an opportunity for the community to support the many health care services that are offered through UNC Rockingham Health Care. Contributions to the Foundation are used to support and enhance services such as the Cancer Center and UNC Rockingham Rehabilitation and Nursing Care Center. Additionally, contributions support future development and improvement of the hospital facilities. Many lives can be touched through the community’s support of the Foundation.

As the costs of providing basic health care services continue to rise, it becomes increasingly important to support the fund raising efforts of the Foundation. Operating in a community where many people do not have the financial resources to focus on wellness initiatives and lack accessibility to primary care, UNC Rockingham Health Care provides a significant number of dollars in medical care to individuals who have no ability to pay.

In an effort to address these increasing challenges, a foundation was established in 1996. It is a separate, not-for-profit organization created to serve the Eden hospital. Contributions are tax deductible. Gifts of cash, stocks, bonds and land are all acceptable, as well as planned giving through estate planning. By seeking and attracting charitable contributions, the Foundation is working to enhance the quality of health care in our community and assist in reducing the costs of those services.

Refunds will be handled on a case by case basis.
