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:
- Because they are grateful for the care they've received - Grateful Patient Program
- To mark a special occasion or pay tribute to an individual or organization - Jazz It Up Campaign
- To honor the memory of a loved one - Paver Stone Program
- To leave a legacy by making a lasting gift to the Hospital and our community - Planned Giving
Why Do You Give?
"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.
