About Us

Thank you for your interest in the Oswego Health Foundation. As an integral Oswego Health partner, the Foundation encourages, solicits and receives charitable gifts in support of programs, projects and services provided through Oswego Health affiliates.

The Foundation was created in 2011 is a 501 (c) (3) and includes an 11-member volunteer Board of Directors that represents a cross-section of our community. Members of the Board work with the Foundation’s staff to provide support to four important Oswego Health initiatives:

    • Patient Centered Care – Renovation of the hospital inpatient unit on the 3rd and 4th floor into private rooms to create an optimal healing environment allowing patients, families and providers to work together and achieve the highest level of quality care.

    • Enhanced Physician Services – Collaborations and alignments to help ensure access to both primary care and a wide variety of specialty medical services including cancer services, orthopedic and many others right here at home.

    • Behavioral Health Services – Relocation of the inpatient and outpatient behavioral services to the former Price Chopper building in Oswego. This new facility will have an optimal environment to provide much needed behavioral health services in our community. It will also provide a new geriatric inpatient unit.

    • Endowment – Invest in the future of Oswego Health, and create financial stability with a balance between current and future needs to ensure exceptional healthcare is available today and for years to come.

We hope that as you review the Foundation portion of the Oswego Health website you will learn more about these initiatives and how they ensure the most modern healthcare services right at home. You can be an important part of the support of these goals through a gift to the Foundation. A gift of any size is welcome. Gifts to the Oswego Health Foundation are tax-deductible in accordance with IRS guidelines.

Mission: The Oswego Health Foundation exists to raise and manage philanthropic support for Oswego Health as it provides accessible quality care and improves the health of the residents in our community.

A Solid Foundation. Right at Home.

Oswego Health is not just a healthcare system.

It is not just a hospital or a community of medical staff.

We are your neighbors, your friends, your family, and we are dedicated to providing exceptional healthcare services right here in your community, Right at Home.

Our mission for Oswego Health is to provide accessible, quality care and improve the health of residents in our community. We have stayed true to this mission since the hospital started back in 1881, where our founders were determined to provide care to all residents, regardless of income and other factors. They desired a location that people could easily access and, of course, wanted their facility to have the best physicians and most modern technology.

Today, we continue this legacy thanks in part to the many people who support the hospital through tax-deductible donations. When you make a gift to Oswego Health, you become our partner in ensuring the finest healthcare available.

As a not-for-profit community healthcare system, we count on additional support from generous donors to help us deliver the outstanding medical care our patients deserve. Please join us in making a gift in support of continued advancement of healthcare in Oswego County.

Thank You to Our Donors
