Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Rural communities are facing a crisis that, while quiet, is threatening millions. As hospitals in rural communities close and services are cut, many Americans are losing access to quality health care. Since 2010, more than 80 rural hospitals across the nation have shuttered. The National Rural Health Association, a non-profit that advocates for rural issues, estimates that there are as many as 700 more rural hospitals at risk of closing in the next 10 years. The Beatrice Community Hospital Foundation strives to support rural healthcare and sustain and create positive healthcare outcomes in our community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Beatrice Community Hospital Foundation was created to support the mission of the Beatrice Community Hospital. First and foremost, our resources are used to intensify the impact the hospital has in creating positive healthcare outcomes in our community. Limited resources are available on an annual basis to assist external non-profit organizations who share this goal of promoting positive healthcare outcomes in our community.

The BCH Foundation works with area individuals, companies, and corporations to raise funds towards an endowment fund. Sustained growth in this endowment fund will ensure healthcare grant funding for generations to come. Fund raising is done on an individual basis, through corporate sponsorship, estate gifts and private foundation grant requests.

The BCH Foundation has an independent 17 member board of directors, representing all aspects of business, agriculture and education in Gage County. The organization, first recognized by the IRS as a tax exempt organization in 1966, has a history of strong community relationships and capacity to grow.

Over the last few years the BCH Foundation has given an average of $75,000 annually in grants back to the Beatrice Community Hospital as well as outside organizations. BCH Foundation helped with a capital campaign to build a brand new, state-of-the-art hospital facility in 2015, and looks forward to growing an endowment fund for all future healthcare needs, large & small.
