The Marshall County Hospital Foundation is the fundraising entity of the hospital. The Foundation supports special projects that benefit patients and guests throughout the hospital. The Foundation recently funded college scholarships to qualifying high school seniors, automatic doors at various entrances of the facility, laparoscopic equipment for the surgery department, hearing amplifiers for the emergency department and inpatients, sleeper chairs for patients' families, and an infant transport incubator for emergency deliveries. Our latest project has been additional security precautions throughout the facility including more security cameras and a computerized door lock system for routine and emergency lock down situations.
When the replacement facility was just in the planning stage, Mr. Joe Tom Haltom had the desire for the hospital to be constructed in a prime location. He stepped forward with a generous donation to make purchasing 31 acres on Old Symsonia Road, just off the Purchase Parkway, a reality. Mr. Haltom stepped up to the plate again to fund the construction of the first medical office building, which we named the "Haltom Medical Office Building."
A donation was made in memory of Scott C. Lathram, by his family, for the completion of the helicopter landing pad, located outside the emergency department at Marshall County Hospital.
Since opening the doors of our new facility in March 2009, many community members have donated toward special projects and needs of the hospital. We continue to sell engraved courtyard bricks that are set along the walk, either in memory or in honor of a loved one.
