Our Purpose

A Partner for Lifelong Health

Join us as we build a destination for healthy living. LMH Health is committed to helping you and your family stay healthy for life. Our goals are the same as yours: healthy people, healthy communities and a healthy future for everyone.

Your gifts help fund investments in patient care, community education, charitable care, wellness and more, so that the care you and your loved ones need will always be available, when and where you need it.

As a community-owned, not-for-profit hospital, LMH Health serves the healthcare needs of the community regardless of an individual's ability to pay. LMH Health receives no tax support from the city of Lawrence or Douglas County and invests all contributions and excess revenues in services, equipment and facilities. Your gift makes a difference!
