Claiborne County Healthcare Foundation

Claiborne Medical Center meets the needs of thousands of patients and their families each year. As the hospital continues to serve our community, there are many opportunities for you to further strengthen our programs and services, and contribute to our success.

The Claiborne County Healthcare Foundation was started in 2000 to help fulfill the health needs of the citizens of Claiborne and surrounding counties. The foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the health of the Tri-state area.

Donations to the Foundation are used to support services such as patient and family education programs, innovative surgical and treatment equipment, and items to make our patients’ and¬†residents’ visits more comfortable, from new beds to flat-screen televisions for patient rooms. Opportunities are also available for donors to specify particular clinical needs or programs where they would like to make an impact with a charitable gift. All gifts to the Claiborne County Healthcare Foundation¬† qualify as charitable deductions for tax purposes.
