The Harney Hospital Foundation is a nonprofit organization. The Foundation provides the opportunity and the means for citizens to support area health care. Through the Foundation, financial contributions from citizens and companies shall help Harney District Hospital (HDH) with capital improvements, equipment purchases, community outreach and special program needs. Member contributions help ensure the sustainability of quality medical care in the HDH service area.



The Harney Hospital Foundation was originally established in 1980 to provide financial support to Harney County’s hospital. Over the years, as the medical community has grown and evolved, the Foundation has provided funds requested for capital improvements, equipment, and supplies.


In 2004 and early 2005, the new board evaluated and updated the mission statement and bylaws. The scope of the Foundation was expanded to cover the concepts of community, education, and access to quality medical care. These expanded concepts meant that the Foundation would strive to serve the community outside of HDH as well as the medical community within HDH. The Foundation began actively fundraising for scholarship programs and First Responders, and also provided financial support for the Rural Mobile Health Clinic and various local cancer support groups.


Memberships and major donations from community citizens and businesses have been crucial to the Foundation. With generous contributions, several endowment funds were established in the early 1990s. Periodic fundraising events, such as the Festival of Western Life, have also provided income.
