The HRMC Foundation was created to assist Holy Rosary Medical Center in meeting their capital needs through philanthropic efforts. Just as in 1911 when the community members met the challenge when the Dominican Sister asked for financial support, almost 100 years later, so has our present community. Contributions to the Foundation allow Holy Rosary Medical Center the ability to adapt with the evolving needs of those we care for. Changing technology along with the need for innovation and facility updates makes continued support of the Foundation even more important.

Our Foundation, which is relatively new, was formed in November of 2004. Our Mission is "to help community members have access to the highest levels of health care in their own community". We do this by acquiring the necessary capital to assist Holy Rosary Medical Center in creating an environment of excellence in healthcare. Holy Rosary continues to lead the valley with our technology and services; we strive to recruit top physicians in their fields, and maintain our charity programs for those without the ability to pay

Past Events
The Holy Rosary Medical Center Foundation has done very successful community events including - Superbowl Celebration, where we not only raised funds for the OB Renovation project at Holy Rosary, but we also provided a wonderful family event for our communities. There is also an Annual Pledge Campaign every November and December; as well as a very successful Employee Giving Campaign held in October.

What the donations are used for
Funds raised from these various campaigns have helped us to contribute $43,000 toward the OB Renovation Project, purchase nursery equipment such as bilimeters and infant warmers, provide Asthma Workshops for children with asthma and their parents, and provide new equipment in the Infusion suite.

Another very important fund administered by the Foundation is the Employee Crisis Fund, where money generated through the Employee Campaign can be used to assist HRMC Employees with financial crisis. We have helped with funeral expenses, airline tickets to see terminally ill parents in another state, to provide heating assistance, as well as numerous other types of issues that many may encounter.

House for the Hospital
We found the need to take on a large project that could generate income and revenue for the Foundation. Thus, "A House for the Hospital" project was created. A building lot in Northview Ranch subdivision was donated by Pelican Development; RJ Investments, Inc donated the work as general contractor; building materials were donated by numerous businesses; and the majority of the construction labor was volunteer labor. Ground broke the end of March 2008.

David Greis, of DACH Custom Home Builders did the framing portion of the project. David Greis is the main owner of his Parma Corporation that includes four owners. He has named his company after his four sons, ages 15 to 9: Dakotah, Anthony, Chase and Hunter.

Of his five fulltime employees, two have college degrees, two are retired after serving for twenty years in the Navy, and one also volunteers as a junior high coach.
