Our Giving Options
Unrestricted Gifts & Special Projects
By giving to our Foundation, donors are able to invest in the future of the healthcare of our community. Our Board of Directors determines funding areas which address the healthcare needs of both MRHC and the community it serves. Currently those areas include: Our Facility, Community Health Initiatives, Special Projects and our current capital project: the Thomas L. Sweat, MD Health Education Center. Our current Special Projects are:
- Thomas L. Sweat, MD Health Education Center: Dr. Thomas Laney Sweat is a giant among those that have provided lifesaving care for more than 50 years to thousands of individuals in our region. During Dr. Sweat’s career he has not only treated patients for diseases, but has also focused on educating patients about healthcare topics. He truly believes that patient non-compliance would be greatly affected if patients had better knowledge of how to take care of themselves. Dr. Sweat’s dedication & passion for the medical profession, his patients and MRHC has led to many accomplishments and his continuous zealous desire for community health education. MRHC was proud to provide a way to honor Dr. Sweat for his contributions to our hospital and our community with the naming of the new construction of an auditorium style education center that will be utilized by the MRHC Graduate Medical Education Program and also for MRHC’s ongoing community health education efforts. Very well deserved. Click here to be redirected to examples of the proposed construction.
- Cancer Center at Magnolia Indigent Patient Transportation Fund: The Magnolia Foundation supports our qualifying indigent patients at the Cancer Center at Magnolia by providing transportation services or fuel vouchers to and from treatment.
- Magnolia Cares Employee Emergency Assistance Fund: The Magnolia Foundation supports the employees of MRHC by hosting and donating to the Magnolia Cares Employee Emergency Assistance Fund. This program was set up to support employees in time of true emergencies up to the amount of $1,000. Employees may file an application with the MRHC Human Resources Department and be awarded funding up to twice a year. A committee of co-workers has been set up to closely monitor this program and reviews each application for appropriateness and qualifications of the program.
- Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Program: Each October the Magnolia Foundation partners with MRHC to provide our Breast Cancer Awareness Program. This program consists of education to our community on awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer as well as early detection benefits, treatment options and the offering of reduced rate mammograms during the month October. The highlight of our program is the annual Breast Cancer Awareness luncheon which is a complementary event where approximately 100 participants are served a nutritious meal and get to listen to an informative educational session provided by one of our clinicians at MRHC.
- Kids Get Fit Program: Magnolia Foundation sees the importance of the prevention of childhood obesity. 4th and 5th grade students in the Corinth City Schools and Alcorn County Schools are taught a curriculum of exercise and nutrition which is a step more than just a regular physical education class. These children are monitored for improvements in stamina and are enthusiastic about this program.
- A Healthy You & the Wellness Movement Programs: MRHC has started a Wellness Movement for our employees, led by a group of co-workers that are passionate about good health habits, nutrition and exercise and are eager to get all employees on board with the program. This program was launched in the spring of 2016 with events, education, competitions & more and is going to be tested and trended for improvements for the next 2 years. Once this program has expanded and has improved the health of our employees MRHC will take our successes out to the community, starting with industry and schools and expanding from there. MRHC feels that it is our responsibility to improve the health and wellness of our community and this is the first step in that process.
