About us

We help donors create a better patient experience.

Our mission

The Foundation exists to inspire philanthropy that will enhance the quality and availability of healthcare services for the patients and communities served by Great Plains Health.

Making a difference

The Great Plains Health Care Foundation partners with generous individuals, businesses and foundations to contribute the resources necessary to provide unmatched healthcare to our region. Donor support helps expand service lines, purchase the latest equipment and technology, provide regional outreach, and support the education of healthcare professionals. The Foundation has been a vital source of funding for projects throughout the organization that enhances patient care and improves the patient experience.

Great Plains Health is an independent not-for-profit healthcare system. All revenue is reinvested back into the organization to support the enhancement and improvement of patient care for the region. The Foundation supports important projects that are vital to enhancing healthcare,but may not receive priority funding due to limited hospital resources. Furthermore, all decisions are made locally and based upon the needs of the population served in west-central Nebraska by community volunteers serving on both the hospital board and foundation board.

Join Great Plains Healthcare Foundation in this effort to keep Great Plains Health an invaluable resource in the health of your community. By working together, we can ensure the expanding healthcare needs of our region are met.
