The Salem Health Foundation


The Salem Health Foundation was established in 1968 by a group of Salem citizens interested in advancing health care through donations.

It is a charitable, tax-exempt organization that supports medical and medically related projects of Salem Health.

The Foundation's 15 volunteer directors help raise funds and manage the resources of the Foundation, while distributing the funds according to the wishes of those who have given. 

Your generous gifts to the Salem Health Foundation have:

  • Funded construction of the Let's All Play Place community therapy playground.
  • Assisted cancer patients needing financial help.
  • Created a Community Health Education Center on the hospital campus.
  • Provided scholarships to students pursuing medical or medically related careers.
  • Sponsored nationally known speakers on health topics.
  • Assisted families needing child safety seats.
  • Provided educational materials including breast cancer care kits and heart manuals.

Your contributions at work!

Donations to the Salem Health Foundation help fund projects at the hospital and across the community.
