Hospital foundations are finding their role increasingly important as the landscape of health care continues to change. Aspirus Langlade Hospital founded the Community Health Foundation (CHF) in 1979 to provide educational and financial support to our hospital and seek opportunities within our community to improve health and awareness. In 2007-08 this organization successfully raised over $1.5 million dollars to provide area residents access to state-of-the art Cancer care.

The CHF has provided free CPR training and equipment to community residents and hospital/clinic staff. The foundation also supports Lifeline services to over 600 subscribers residing in seven counties. In the past year the foundation distributed over $30,000 in health related grants to Kettlebowl Ski Hill, The Boys and Girls Club, The Bridge Dental Clinic, Community Partners for Medication Safety and Operation Compassion. Within Aspirus Langlade Hospital, foundation funds were utilized to provide patient dialysis chairs, journals to hospice and cancer patients, a port accessible t-shirt for chemotherapy patients, and a portable ultrasound unit to provide community stroke screenings. The foundation is excited to continue this wonderful grant opportunity to area schools. Download a grant application here.
