Our mission is to promote Moore County Hospital District by improving community health care through fundraising, education, and support.
Our vision is to grow resources for superior community healthcare and wellness.
Our values are:
Compassion - to embody and demonstrate a caring spirit
Commitment - to dedicate to the mission and the community
Innovative - to value unique and dynamic solutions
Flexible - to be open to new ideas and change
Integrity - to embody honest and ethical behavior
Respect - to demonstrate value for human life and beliefs
Accountability - to be responsible to donors and recipients
The Foundation was incorporated on 09/25/96.
The Foundation's first project was to raise funds for a building to house the District ambulances in the late '90s / early '00s.
The project was successful, and the building that was erected still houses the District ambulances to date. The building also houses EMS staff quarters and a classroom that District staff and community organizations use for education and training.
The Foundation received tax exempt 501(c)(3) status in 2007 and has been steadily growing through support of the Moore County Community.
