North Country Hospital invites you to help ensure that our neighbors, friends and family members receive the care they need. For a century, we have served our community through partnering with people like you to provide compassionate, close-to-home quality health care to everyone, regardless of circumstances.
From day one, charitable giving has been essential to our mission of serving everyone with appropriate facilities, advanced technology, and the needed services. It is thanks to the generous donations that began 100 years ago that our hospital exists today. Since then, charitable giving has provided for our hospital’s expansion, allowing North Country to keep pace with the community’s needs.
Through community support, hundreds of people every year are given care, medical supplies, prescriptions, and provided transportation that they otherwise would not have received. It is this heart bound partnership between us that keeps our community family healthier.
Your gift is confirmation of North Country’s mission, and allows us to continue to serve our community members from birth through a meaningful and healthy life. Health of our community is our greatest responsibility.

North Country Hospital employees may designate a portion of their paycheck for charitable giving, either back to NCH programs or in support of other local organizations.

This program allows you to make a larger annual gift than you may have thought possible.
Tribute or Memorial Gifts
A gift made in honor of a loved one or friend is a wonderful and thoughtful way to celebrate that person’s life. Tribute and memorial gifts can commemorate almost any life event or occasion and are often made in lieu of sending flowers. Consider making an honorary gift the next time you want to let someone know “I’m thinking of you” or “I care.”
