Marshall Browning Hospital's Annual Giving Club

Making possible exciting improvements that benefit the health and wellness of our community.


Answering a Special Need and Responding

The need for your involvement and support is the result of a changing healthcare environment, which has presented Marshall Browning Hospital with new financial challenges. It has become increasingly more difficult for the hospital to generate adequate revenue to meet its operating expenses. Medicare and Medicaid's payment system, bad debt, and charity care are a few of the reasons. For example, Marshall Browning Hospital receives on average only 50 cents for each dollar of revenue generated. Marshall Browning Hospital is constantly looking for solutions to these challenges, which have decreased the amount of funds available for capital improvements and other special projects.

Sharing the Solution

The members of the Annual Giving Club serve as an integral part of the overall solution. Together, they support Marshall Browning Hospital in providing funds not otherwise available to the hospital, making possible exciting improvements that benefit the health and wellness of all the communities served.

Requirements of Membership

To join the Annual Giving Club there are only two requirements needed:
An active interest in the future development and capital projects of Marshall Browning Hospital.
An annual contribution to the hospital.

How are the Contributions Used?

Your membership gift for the Annual Giving Club goes immediately into a fund that is used only for capital equipment, renovation, and the expansion needs of the hospital. Every gift is used for patient care facilities, programs, or equipment. No contributions are used for operating expenses or to pay salaries of any personnel. Donations are tax deductible as provided by law.
