We are the small hospital with the big heart! Our size is one of our biggest assets because it allows us to provide high quality health care with a personal touch. And our size means that your contribution has a tangible impact in the care of our patients – from medical equipment to technology to endowment, your generosity really makes a difference to all the patients that we serve. While other small, rural hospitals have been forced to close due to financial shortfalls, prudent management and your gifts have enabled Grace Cottage to thrive!
Gifts can be directed to general operating support, which allows us to provide quality patient care, to medical equipment or technology, to building improvements, or to the Patient Care Fund, which helps Grace Cottage provide free care for those lacking adequate resources. Gifts can also be directed to specific Wish List items.
Giving to Grace Cottage has never been easier. The simplest way to support Grace Cottage is to make a donation via credit card or check.
To make a donation in honor of Dr. Robert Backus’s retirement, and contribute to a program for the care of our senior citizens, simply type “Dr. Backus” in the “In honor of” field on our on-line donation form, or write “Dr. Backus” in the memo field of your check. We will let Dr. Backus know that we received a gift from you!
