Why We Do It?  Our Community!


Three Rivers Hospital is Over 65...

Three Rivers Hospital Foundation was formed when like-minded community members saw the state of our ageing hospital and decided that we wanted to do something about it. 

There is no denying that the hospital's services and staff have turned around since CEO Scott Graham and his team started running Three Rivers Hospital (TRH), but there is only so much even the best managers can do with a building that is "past its prime."

That is where we come in... Three Rivers Hospital Foundation is here to help our community by supporting the hospital. TRH is is a critical access rural hospital, and, like most such hospitals, struggles to make ends meet. As their focus is on patient care there are times where comfort and aesthetics have to take a back burner. However we know how much pride is generated from a great building, and how much safer we feel in updated facilities, so we have decided to bring our focus to those places that can get passed over. 

Three Rivers Hospital is dedicated to providing the Ideal Patient Experience, and TRH Foundation is here to help them with that mission. As members of this community this is also our hospital, and we are helping our community by raising funds and awareness to help improve the quality of patient care and the patient experience at Three Rivers Hospital.    

Managing a hospital in today’s healthcare environment is challenging at best. Being part of our community hospital, to promote continued excellence in care, while supporting new programs or services, is a natural and exciting way to share my clinical and administrative experience. More importantly it fulfills my desire to give back to my community, as it so freely offered me during my younger years”.
