Fort Hamilton Foundation
The very existence of Fort Hamilton Hospital is a tribute to the early physicians, churches, civic leaders and citizens of the Hamilton community whose tireless efforts and
perseverance made the hospital possible. With Mercy Hospital on the east side of Hamilton, a group of forward-thinking citizens came together and decided that Hamilton needed a
community hospital to serve the west side of Hamilton. Within 2 weeks, the community raised more than a half million dollars to establish a building fund for their community
hospital with the opening of the new hospital on May 1, 1929.
That tradition of generosity and spirit of philanthropy have remained a part of Fort Hamilton Hospital's heritage. Over the years, when asked, the community has generously
donated millions of dollars to help our community hospital expand services, improve patient care areas, provide services to the community, enlarge our hospital and bring
state-of-the-art technology to Hamilton.
The mission of the Foundation is to generate and administer funds that will benefit Fort Hamilton Hospital. To that end, there are many ways of donating to the hospital that
can enhance your giving experience and can benefit the hospital as well as your family.
