Pauls Valley General Hospital Foundation, Inc. was established in 1995 with the purpose of providing long term benefits to Pauls Valley General Hospital through the establishment of an endowment. Interest from the endowment will be used for physician recruitment, upgrading and replacing outdated equipment, and funding new programs and services.
The endowment efforts were initiated by a fundraising campaign with a 1995 goal of $950,000. The goal was surpassed raising $1,023,452.05 in cash, pledges and deferred gifts.
At present the hospital foundation has gifts and pledges exceeding $1,825 million. Of that amount $420,000 was raised by the hospital employees, physicians, Board of Directors and auxiliary. The community and surrounding area have contributed the balance with two $75,000 contributions from Pauls Valley National Bank and First United Bank.
The Loftin Conference Center, which is part of the hospital's recent expansion, and a number of in-kind gifts of equipment are results of the foundation's efforts. The conference center was named for C.T. and Lida Marion Loftin who were long time residents of Pauls Valley. The conference center will seat up to 50 people and has audio/visual capabilities.
Pauls Valley General Hospital Foundation has the IRS 501(c)(3) designation making donations tax deductible. The foundation also holds financial and health related seminars to help people with long range financial planning and health issues.
The Foundation's office is located at the Willows Assisted Living Residence, 301 Melville Drive, Pauls Valley, OK 73075. For further information, contact Michael Dobbins, Executive Director, at (405) 238-4414.
