Supporting Southwest General Through Charitable Giving
Southwest General began as a small community hospital in 1920 founded by the residents of the surrounding communities after a devastating flu epidemic. What the residents of these communities hoped to establish was a local source for health care, keeping patients close to home. More than ninety years later, Southwest General not only meets the need for health care close to home but also does so with an array of award-winning programs and services. To assist in the continuing growth of new hospital services, programs and expansion projects, the Southwest Community Health Foundation was created in 1985 and became fully operational in 1986.
