The Licking Memorial Hospital (LMH) Development Council was established in 1987 and
falls under the auspices of the Licking Memorial Health Foundation. Its purpose is
to increase charitable giving to LMH and to enhance and promote meaningful community
relations for the hospital. Although the hospital is financially sound, it is not immune
to today’s financial challenges that include government cutbacks in Medicare reimbursements,
revenue shortfalls, and the continuing cost of charity care. To remain financially
sound and stay competitive in this environment, Licking Memorial Hospital aggressively
pursues ways to control quality and enhance expenses and productivity to serve the community
more effectively. Donations to the Licking Memorial Health Foundation enable the hospital
to provide for capital needs, services and programs that may otherwise go unfunded.
The Licking Memorial Health Foundation is a nonprofit corporation established in 1984
for the purpose of conducting fund-raising activities for the benefit and support of
Licking Memorial Health Systems.
Approximately 75 community volunteers serve on three Development Council committees:
Education and Membership, Annual Support, and Community Relations. Community leaders who
serve on the Development Council have diverse backgrounds and expertise.
They are interested in LMH and committed to its mission of improving the health of the
community. The Development Council is supported by the community, the Hospital volunteer
organization, TWIGS, employees and the medical staff.
