Stephens Community Healthcare Foundation - Make a Gift
The Stephens Community Healthcare Foundation, a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization was created in 1999. The foundation's primary purpose is to provide philanthropic support for the capital needs of Western Maine Health and Stephens Memorial Hospital. The goal of the Stephens Community Healthcare Foundation is to increase endowment, capital and operating funds available to this local healthcare system by encouraging philanthropic support of Western Maine Health and Stephens Memorial Hospital. Like Stephens Memorial Hospital and Western Maine Health, the foundation is a member of the MaineHealth® family.
For sixty years, Stephens Memorial Hospital and residents of the Oxford Hills community have championed the need for quality, full-service local health care. From its humble beginnings in a Main Street home in Norway to our current expansion and renovation project, Stephens Memorial Hospital has been able to provide exceptional medical care because of the commitment of our physicians and staff and the generosity of our supporters.
Today, healthcare organizations are finding themselves in an environment of increasing constraints and financial pressures. Left unaddressed, these factors would limit the ability to provide the highest quality medical care to meet present and future community needs. Charitable giving is a very important means of supporting hospital-based and system-wide operations, programs and collaborations.
Each year, Stephens Memorial Hospital and Western Maine Health continue to incur climbing costs to:
- Recruit and retain the best physicians and medical personnel
- Offer state-of-the-art medical technology for diagnoses and treatment
- Provide the most complete range of medications and pharmaceuticals
Western Maine Health and Stephens Memorial Hospital have made a commitment to this community to provide medical care to all who seek it, regardless of ability to pay. Combine these escalating costs with an increase in the number of our patients without insurance and reduced Medicare reimbursements, and the need for additional charitable support continues to grow.
