As a Foundation, we fundraise annually to meet the ongoing equipment and technology needs of GMCH. Did you know that nearly every piece of medical equipment and item of technology used at Groves is funded by donors, like you?

Our current priority is funding new & replacement equipment & technology at GMCH in 2023-24, including those listed below. Without the support of our community of incredible donors, we would be unable to continue to fund these, and many other, items.

New strides in medical innovations for technology & equipment are made every day, and old equipment eventually reaches its end of life or becomes outdated. Your Gift to Groves ensures our hospital is able to stay current and allows you, your friends, family, and loved ones to continue to receive the excellent care you need, close to home.

Every piece of patient care equipment at Groves is made possible because of the generous financial gifts we receive from our community and donors like you. Our drive towards improving patient care is never complete.
