A message to our donors

Dear friends,

We are wishing you and your family the very best during this challenging time, and I hope you’ll stay up-to-date on the latest information related to COVID-19 by following

We have had a number of donors reach out to ask how they can support our community. Here are two ways you can make an impact for those affected by challenges like COVID-19:

  • Support LMH Health employees affected by the COVID-19 crisis by making a gift to the CARE Fund.
  • Support hospital needs such as supplies and equipment through the COVID-19 Area of Greatest Need Fund

Our kind community members Jeff and Mary Weinberg have already made a significant lead gift in support of LMH Health employees affected by COVID-19. We are grateful for their leadership and generosity. If you are interested in supporting this effort, you can make a gift online at

Please know that while the foundation office is currently open by appointment only, you are more than welcome to reach out if you need anything at all in the coming days.

Thank you for supporting your community hospital and clinics. Your generosity ensures that LMH Health can provide exceptional care for our families, neighbors and friends, which is more important now than ever before.

In gratitude,

Rebecca Smith, Executive Director, LMH Health Foundation & Vice President of Strategic Communications, LMH Health
