About us

The Pen Bay Waldo Healthcare Foundation supports Pen Bay Medical Center, Waldo County General Hospital and other Coastal Healthcare Alliance Affiliates. The Foundation raises charitable contributions for approved capital improvements, vital programs, daily operating costs and future endowment needs to supplement institutional revenues from insurance payments, private pay patients and reimbursement from federal and state sources.

The Foundation works with many community partners who help raise donations in the community. From the WCGH Aid’s yard sales and book drives of Camden National Bank, to the school drives for toys and Rockland Women’s Golf Association Golf Classic, our community partners are working with the Foundation to strengthen our healthcare system.
