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 by the physicians and staff at Groves is funded by donors, like you?

Our current priority is funding new & replacement equipment & technology at GMCH in 2024-25. In addition to the items listed below, we will be funding improvements to the infrastructure of the hospital. We also have a fundraising goal of $2M to replace the current donor-funded CT Scanner, which is 15 years old and has now reached end-of-life. Click here to read more about CT. Without the support of our community of incredible donors, we would be unable to meet these needs.

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 excellent patient care, close to home, whenever you need it.

It is our firm belief that our state-of-the-art facility deserves nothing less than state-of-the-art tools and delivery. None of this is possible without you.
