LifeCare Health Care Fund

Established in 2004 to provide financial support for charitable and educational activities related to health care and senior living, LifeCare Health Care Fund is a permanent financial resource which provides grants to help healthcare projects become a reality for the people of our community. Since that time, thousands of dollars have been raised through donations, memorials and our “Partners in Health” event to fund various community and hospital projects. To date, over $25,000 has been given back to LifeCare Medical Center and other health related projects in the form of grants from the LifeCare Health Care Fund.
