Giving Programs & Special Projects
Magnolia Foundation’s Mission is to work to improve the quality of life, right here at home. All dollars donated to us are spent right here in our communities on health initiatives and projects that effect the lives of the people in OUR area.
Tribute Giving is a way to recognize, honor, and celebrate people and events that are important to you by giving back to others. Magnolia Foundation also accepts donations in lieu of flowers if you would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one. Giving a gift is a meaningful way to commemorate a holiday, birthday, or honor a loved one’s memory. You can donate on behalf of someone to support our work.
The Magnolia Regional Health Center Foundation, Inc. is a Mississippi non-profit corporation, Mississippi registered charity and we are designated as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization by the IRS. All donations are tax deductible in accordance with law.
Thomas L. Sweat, MD Health Education Center
The new Thomas L. Sweat, MD Health Education Center is designed to continue the legacy of training physicians who give back to our communities. Set to be located on the hospital’s main campus, the center will consist of a 128 seat auditorium and 6 classrooms and will provide medical training for all of Magnolia Regional Health Center’s graduate medical education (GME) programs and community health education efforts.
MRHC started medical education in 2006 and has grown to include more than 40 residents, fellows and 30 medical students. The construction of this education center allows for growth and development of the GME program. The opportunity to train in a modern and progressive facility will be a huge asset. Providing high quality training for graduates enables them to work in rural areas such as Corinth, with proper preparation to practice effectively. The Thomas L. Sweat, MD Health Education Center will help Mississippi provide primary care services, increase health education for our citizens and enable MRHC to continue providing leading-edge care.
In a medically underserved area, MRHC is proud that many of these doctors remain in the community. Roughly 63% of program graduates remain in Alcorn County and the surrounding communities. Our GME programs provide organized and academically rigorous programs of education that foster the physicians’ professional development.
The dedication and passion that Dr. Tommy Sweat had for the medical profession, his patients and MRHC has led to many accomplishment and his continuous desire for community health education. His legacy will live on in this center and will continue the passion he had for GME and education for our citizens.
Join our cause! Make your donation to help Magnolia Foundation raise funds to put towards the construction of this much needed facility. The estimated total construction costs of this center is $5.5 Million.

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Grant Program
An AED or Automated External Defibrillator is a machine that is used to treat cardiac arrest, a life-threatening condition where the heart suddenly stops beating properly. By sending an electric shock to the heart of a person in cardiac arrest, the AED restores a normal heart rhythm. With much of our service area being rural and widespread, Magnolia Foundation saw the need to provide these machines to various entities such as schools, law enforcement, court systems, churches, etc. to provide an extra level of protection to those areas that might benefit from utilizing this machine until first responders arrive.
Our program consists of providing a maximum of 1 AED machine per quarter. Applicants are required to complete an online application, which is reviewed by the Board of Directors on a quarterly basis. All recipients of this program are required to execute a grant contract that includes responsibilities for training, upkeep and replacement of pads and batteries when needed.
