Why Support the
Avita Health Foundation?
Patient revenue, alone, cannot provide for the ever-changing needs of our hospitals. As with every non-profit, Avita Health System directs its revenue back into the mission of the organization. But, the rapid pace of advances in technology, reductions in reimbursement covered by government programs (ie: Medicare and Medicaid) and increases in charity care must be met with private support to sustain a high level of care. Each year contributions range from a few dollars to thousands… and every gift is important. To that end, there are many ways of donating to Avita that can enhance your giving experience.
Annual Fund is the heart of our development efforts – benefitting programs and services of the hospitals and clinics within Avita Health System. Donors are encouraged to give annually to meet the day-to-day needs and building our base of support. For a copy of our 2012 Annual Community Campaign, click here.
Events help get the community involved within Avita Health System. Contributions of time, in-kind donations, sponsorships, entry fees all help us to fundraise for special needs of the Avita family.
Planned Giving – a giving circle of individuals who let us know of their intention for a bequest or planned gift.

Patients can stay closer to home to get the needed tests, screenings and procedures with the latest equipment desired.
Patient Comfort Care Fund
It comes down to the finest details that make a patient feel good about the care they receive. Comfort in care not only comes from the trust in knowledgeable healthcare staff, but also in the finest details of our hospitals, such as updated furnishings, furniture, patient room updates and more.
Women’s Health Fund
Help support a new line of services for women’s overall wellness, including a women’s health center to be located within Bucyrus Community Hospital. The “Avita Cares for Women” line of services will cover stereotactic breast biopsies, a nurse navigator for those experiencing abnormal mammograms, an osteoporosis clinic and wellness programs tailored to women’s health issues.
Healthcare Scholarship Fund
Help invest in the future of our healthcare professionals. Avita Health Foundation awards college scholarships annually to help offset higher education tuition for area students seeking a healthcare degree. Our hope is that those students will someday come back to Avita to serve our community.
Your contribution large or small goes a tremendous way in supporting the vitality of our local hospitals. Your general donation will be used for the greatest need of the Avita Health System.
