Dear Friend:


It is an exciting time at the Lewis County Health System!  Through a year-long collaborative effort, a new Strategic Plan (2019-2024) has been developed that will guide the Health System and serve as a blueprint for the future of healthcare in Lewis County. 


The Lewis County Hospital Foundation Board of Directors is excited to be an important part

of these strategic initiatives that will modernize our hospital and ensure the highest-quality healthcare for our community.  Stay tuned!


The mission of the Hospital Foundation is to raise funds to support the Health System. 

In 2019, the Foundation has been instrumental in providing funding for several important projects including:


  • Purchasing new furniture and community signs for the elevator lobbies of the Residential  Health Care Facility with proceeds from the 2018 Foundation Gala


  • Replacing the bricks on the Adirondack Edge outdoor patio which is used by residents, family members and staff with proceeds from our annual Golf Tournament


  • Renovating the Lab to include a new handicap accessible bathroom for patients with funds from the estate of Miss Margery Smith, a long-time Lewis County General Hospital Lab employee


  • Funding the construction of the Designated Helicopter Landing Zone on our campus along with  a generous donation from Elizabeth A. Woods in memory of her husband John B. Woods


The Lewis County Hospital Foundation is an important part of the past, present and future of the Lewis County Health System.  I invite you to make a tax-deductible gift to the Hospital Foundation’s 2019 Community Appeal.   You may choose from a variety of funds with the enclosed pledge card, or securely on-line at lchf.networkforgood.com.  All donors who contribute to the 2019 Community Appeal will be recognized on the Hospital Foundation’s Donor Wall and in the Hospital’s Annual Report to the Community.


With your continued generosity, the Lewis County Hospital Foundation will continue to support the Lewis County Health System in achieving the highest level of health and wellness for you, your family and our community for generations to come.


Thank you in advance for your generous support of our community hospital!


With gratitude,




JoAnne Rhubart
