Fulton County Medical Center

Why Give?

Fulton County Medical Center was originally built in 1950 through the dreams and aspirations of Dr. Edgar H. MacKinlay and with the determination of a handful of community-minded people who wanted to bring medical services to our rural community. Although there were struggles at times to meet the financial goal, organizations and individuals came together to raise the needed $125,000 to build the facility. In this way, the community worked together to provide residents with a community hospital. Today, philanthropy continues to play an important role at Fulton County Medical Center.

Why do people give to the FCMC Foundation: When you give to FCMC Foundation, you are supporting strong, local healthcare - both today and in the future.

Why Do You Give?

Andy-Washabaugh-Profile"The Fulton County Medical Center is an important part of Fulton County - now and for the future. The people at Fulton County Medical Center treat people with care and compassion. I know this from the extraordinary care they showed my mother and our entire family while she was in long term care."

- Andy Washabaugh, who along with wife Joyce, donated the original 22 acres of land to build the new Fulton County Medical Center.

"I give to three organizations each month because I think it's important. I was a patient at the Medical Center and received excellent care. What I give isn't a lot, but it's my small way of saying thank you."

- Hilda King, 85
Patti-Hess-Profile"I've worked at Fulton County Medical Center for 23 years and have worked in Acute Care, ER, LTC, Lab, Respiratory, Clinic, doctors' offices, SDS, Home Care and now in Cardiac Rehab. I have helped answer phones in admissions, put in IV's or Catheters, helped with diabetic education, helped with health fairs, have done blood pressure screenings at Senior Centers and Senior Living Apartments. I have helped wherever and with whatever needs done. FCMC is like a family. I know firsthand what great, dedicated people work here. I have been a patient here as well and so have members of my family. We may be a small facility, but we do a great job here. I not only support FCMC with my time, but financially as well."

- Patti Hess, FCMC Employee
