About the Foundation
For most, the reason for giving begins at home. We want outstanding care for our loved ones. Most of us, or someone we love, have been cared for by our local hospital. Through the Harnett Health Foundation, a part of Harnett Health System, you can invest to ensure outstanding care is available to all who live, work, and visit our area.
You might ask, “Why does the Foundation exist?” Funding from government and private insurance programs provides essential health services but it cannot pay for everything. The Foundation’s role is to fill the gap, to provide a personal touch for patients with extraordinary needs, to expand access to care, and to support health system staff to have the very best patient care environment to work in.
The Foundation has continued to inform the citizens of Harnett County of its mission. The group hopes people know that, as Chairman T.C. Godwin stated, “it’s not so much about the money, but where the money goes and how it’s used to treat patients. I take pride in the work the Foundation has done to better healthcare in our area.”
The Harnett Health Foundation continues to support innovation and new technology and to encourage compassionate patient care. Your generous donation will help the Foundation achieve its mission to improve the health and comfort of the people in the communities served by the hospital through needed development in its facilities and state-of-the-art equipment.
Harnett Health President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Bryan added, “We continue the mandate set by Nathan M. Johnson, Sr. when he gave the first donation to start the hospital – to provide quality care for people regardless of race, creed, color, or ability to pay. Seventeen percent of the care provided at our hospital is free to residents who need it. We are a safety net for people in our area, and we need your support to be able to meet Mr. Johnson’s vision and to continue to provide healthcare for you and all area residents.”
The Foundation provides various ways to make a donation and will work with you to offer the best alternative. Popular methods include one-time donations and multi-year pledges for specific projects or equipment purchases, and/or the establishment of scholarships.
All Harnett Health employees at Betsy Johnson Hospital, Central Harnett Hospital, our physician practices, and our outpatient centers are committed to serving you. By making a generous donation to the Foundation, you will be helping to improve the quality of healthcare for our children and our families for generations to come. We have made a commitment to you. Will you, in turn, make a commitment to us?
