Hancock Health Foundation

Nancy Davis of Hancock Health Foundation (Formerly Hancock Regional Hospital Foundation) spoke to Kiwanis about the foundation and future activities.   Hancock Health and the hospital receive no tax dollars.  The foundation is a non-profit foundation that raises money to support specific hospital needs and community needs. 
In 2017 the foundation gave 22 scholarships to the community in the amount of $65.000.   Women Helping Women began 20 years ago to help pay for 26 mammograms.  In 2017, Women Helping Women helped 168 women with the $77.000 raised.  The Women Helping Women program will be held Oct 23, at Adagios.  The second source of funding is the golf outing which raised $44,000 for scholarships and other needs.
The foundation is a part of the successful campaigns to create the Anderson Women's Center, the Hospice program, and the Sue Ann Wortman Cancer Center.   Current activities are centered on Population Health including a new mental health initiative.    For more information see
