About the OhioHealth Foundation

All of our earnings go toward improving patient care.

The OhioHealth Foundation raises and invests funds to support the work of our Ohio family of faith-based, not-for-profit hospitals and healthcare centers.

Give Now

Since 1891, when private money built the first hospital in the OhioHealth system, we have directed the community’s outpouring of generosity into excellent care for our patients. This includes funds for research and equipment, education for our medical professionals and effective care environments for everyone.

By investing funds wisely, we are able to strengthen OhioHealth’s mission in four important ways:

Innovation and technology

New medical innovations, cures and solutions allow us to improve our patients’ experiences in ways both big and small.

Research and education

We fund research and education so our healthcare professionals can continually gain new knowledge, and share what they know with their teams and patients.

Infrastructure and facilities

When we keep our buildings up-to-date, efficient and comfortable, our patients feel better faster and our medical teams can focus on care.

Community outreach

OhioHealth knowledge and expertise goes beyond our walls and into our communities, so the people of central Ohio can access the care and knowledge that will keep them healthy.

We support wellness education and programming. 

The generosity of our donors has helped our big ideas for making healthcare simple, accessible and affordable in many ways throughout the communities we serve.

PASTRx PILOT PROGRAM

OhioHealth Physician Group Heritage College is providing PastRx, a prescription drug monitoring program, to OhioHealth providers throughout southeast Ohio to help track patients’ controlled substances history. Naloxone and overdose training is also provided to all OhioHealth Physician Group Heritage College practice locations in the region. (Southeast Ohio)

STOP THE BLEED COURSES

Stop the Bleed teaches community members what do to in the event of a life-threatening bleed. Funding will also be used to conduct training for Franklin County high schools, as well as the local police, fire and emergency medical services departments. Read more about Stop the Bleed Courses on the OhioHealth Newsroom. (Franklin County)

OPIOID ADDICTION AND CRISIS TEAM

OhioHealth, Southeast Mental Health and CompDrug are collaborating on a pilot to serve Franklin County residents who suffer from opiate addition and mental illness. They plan to enhance access to treatment for 250 patients that present with these conditions in the OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital emergency department. If successful, funding will be used to expand the pilot. (Franklin County)

NUTRITION AS A TOOL EDUCATION SERIES

OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital and OhioHealth Grady Memorial Hospital will conduct two nutrition education sessions this year for cancer survivors who are completing treatment or have completed treatment within the last 12 months. (Delaware County)

SOUTHEAST HARDIN—NORTHWEST UNION FIREFIGHTERS ASSOCIATION

Funds were granted to purchase and improve trauma response tools, including The LUCAS™ Chest Compression System, a device that can be applied in 20 seconds, freeing rescuers to focus on other life-saving tasks. (Hardin County)

COMMUNITY OUTREACH CAR SEATS

Car seats are purchased for mothers in need who have visited Wellness on Wheels Women’s Health, as well as women who are involved in the Prenatal Home Visiting program. (Franklin County)

SEXUAL ASSAULT RESPONSE NETWORK OF CENTRAL OHIO

Funds will provide door locks, window locks and other safety items to victims of sexual assault, as well as cab vouchers for transportation to and from care sites and law enforcement or criminal justice appointments. Learn more about SARNCO. (Franklin County)

INPATIENT BEHAVIORAL HEALTH UNIT EXERCISE BIKES

Funds will help purchase exercise bikes for patients in the behavioral health unit. (Franklin County)

OhioHealth provides high-quality care to all those we serve, regardless of their ability to pay.

As care needs increase, donations become more important than ever. The funds you give us support our 11 hospitals and more than 50 ambulatory sites, as well as our hospice, home-health and other services — all across a 40-county area.

We reach out to individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations for help. If you’d like to support our mission, call us at (614) 544.4483. We’ll be happy to share the many opportunities for giving.

The People Behind the OhioHealth Foundation
