Welcome to Our Organization
The Oconee Regional Healthcare Foundation serves the community by raising funds that enhance the mission of Oconee Regional Medical Center, supporting projects that fall outside the hospital’s regular revenue stream. The Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and donations it receives are tax deductible.
Projects supported by the Foundation include the renovation and expansion of the hospital’s Emergency Treatment Center, and the Intensive Care Unit. The Foundation also works in partnership with SHINE (See How Investments Nurture Everyone), the internal fundraising organization which is supported by employee donations. SHINE projects have included funding of a new canopy over the Patient Discharge Area, the completion of a Bereavement Room adjacent to the Emergency Treatment Center, and the renovation of the Mammography waiting area. Recently, SHINE has provided funding for the resurfacing of the Health Track on our campus showing their commitment to proactive preventative healthcare in our community.
