The Ballinger Memorial Hospital Health Foundation was founded in 2011 as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation to provide assistance to the Hospital District by establishing an avenue for tax deductible donations. Since its inception, the BMHD Health Foundation has been the recepient of donations received for various reasons including memorials, honorariums and funds donated into the general Health Foundation fund. These donations have enabled the purchase of several capital equipment items including a hydraulic ambulance stretcher, cardiac heart monitors and items for patient rooms. Contributions and donations qualify as fully tax-deductible under US tax code. Each donor has a part in allowing the Hospital District to maintain its commitment for providing exceptional patient care.
