Community Impact

Where are we going?

In order to know where you are going, you need to know where you started. Pawnee Valley Community Hospital Foundation was created in 2012. The Foundation was envisioned to help build upon the Pawnee Valley Hospital‘s already strong healthcare mission. The Foundation is guided by a group of local Trustees who have been selected for their leadership roles in the community along with their vision for the success of the Foundation. Each Trustee understands the value of quality healthcare for the citizens of Pawnee County and knows the importance of staying on top of the advancing healthcare needs in our community. These Trustees are Bill Barger- President, Kyle Beckwith-Vice-President, Lewis Young-Treasurer, Meribeth Busenbark-Treasurer, Suzan Haynes and Jim Delaney.

The Foundation under new Leadership, Julie Bugner-Smith has plans with the Trustees to secure the Foundation’s legacy in the community and to PVCH.

Several Foundation projects are on the Calendar for 2018, many community oriented.
