Cogdell Foundation

The Cogdell Memorial Hospital Foundation is committed to helping promote good health within our community. Our Board members are community-committed citizens. They are your friends and family members and trust Cogdell Hospital with their medical care. They have your best interests at heart and generously donate their time to ensure that we have state-of-the-art equipment, facilities and programs to help the physicians and staff of Cogdell Hospital provide quality care.

It is our belief that every gift is special, regardless of the amount. When you donate to the Cogdell Memorial Hospital Foundation you can be assured that your support will impact and touch the lives of your family, friends and neighbors. Donations to the Foundation are tax-deductible and the Foundation invites you to designate a program or area that is meaningful to you or allow us to apply your gift where the need is greatest.

With your support, the Foundation has been able to donate more than $170,000 over the past 10 years to Cogdell Memorial Hospital for state-of-the-art medical equipment, enhanced services, and employee appreciation.
