The Morris Hospital Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 1994.

The Morris Hospital Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 1994. The Foundation provides for funding for programs and equipment purchases which may not otherwise be possible for the Hospital or would require more time for the Hospital to fund through its operations.

Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Foundation receives gifts of all sizes from individuals, local businesses, grantors, employees and physicians, grateful patients and their families, and others who are invested in the health of our community.


Throughout the year the Morris Hospital Auxiliary and Foundation make possible many different Hospital programs and services. These programs include Camp 911, Employee and Volunteer Emergency/Disaster Hardship Relief, Patient Transportation, LifeLife(R), Medication Dispenser Program, Scholarships, and the Frederick E. Butts Serenity Garden. To learn more about the Morris Hospital Foundation’s annual programs and services, please click here.
