The Emerson Health Care Foundation is a charitable organization whose mission is to develop friends of the hospital to help us meet the ongoing financial challenges facing health care.

It is led by a strong group of volunteers who give both their time and resources in support of the hospital’s mission and vision. We are very fortunate to have them as part of the Emerson family.
