Vision

Inspiring a Culture of Giving for the Health of Our Community

Mission

The Mission of the Foundation is to Provide Financial Support to the Adams County Regional Medical Center and Other Health Related Endeavors to Ensure Premium Health Care Program and Service Availability to the Residents of the Adams County Region.

Original Mission

The mission of the Foundation is to provide financial support to the Adams County Regional Medical Center to ensure it can continue to offer premium health care programs and services to the residents of Adams County and the surrounding area.  This mission is only possible through the generous support and partnership that exists within the community.

In 2012, the Auxiliary submitted a proposal to merge their financials with the Foundation in order to utilize the benefits of the Foundation’s 501 (c) (3) status.  The Foundation agreed to adopt the Auxiliary under its organization on January 24, 2012.  Then in 2015, ACRMC underwent a reorganization process fully moving all operations of the Auxiliary and the Gift Shop under the Foundation. At this time, Becky Hawkins became the Auxiliary Coordinator and Debbie Simpson was hired as the Gift Shop Manager.

 

The Adams County Health and Wellness Coalition has been linked to the Foundation and ACRMC since its inception.  The mission of the Coalition is to improve the health and wellness of the children of Adams County and their families by assisting the community in creating a culture of wellness through increased physical activities and improved nutrition.  Another partner through the Coalition is the Adams County Creating Healthy Communities program.

 

The Adams Brown Diabetes Education Coalition signed Fiscal Sponsor Agreement with the Foundation on November 4, 2015.  The Coalition’s mission is to decrease the prevalence in childhood obesity in children attending the Head Start programs in Adams and Brown counties and to empower employees to effectively manage their health and wellness.
