In 2016, the Foundation donated $185,000 to the Inpatient Building Project. These funds were raised over several years with the foresight of new patient rooms someday becoming a reality. The hospital broke ground for a new inpatient wing in June of 2016.
Patients were moved to the new unit on July 17, 2017. The project in its entirety was completed the fall of 2017 and a garden party open house was held the following June for major donors.
The Foundation was an instrumental part of the fundraising. In addition to the $185,000 donated in 2016, the Foundation contributed another $115,000 in 2018 for a total of $300,000 in support of the Inpatient Project.
