Founded in 1978, the Floyd Memorial Foundation is a tax-exempt organization established solely to support the mission and needs of Baptist Health Floyd and its affiliate organizations. The Foundation acts as a vital link between the hospital’s vision of excellence and its financial capacity to provide the best for the community it serves. Financial contributions from individuals, families, organizations and corporations help support advanced and effective resources in order to promote quality health and healing through sophisticated technology, community health screenings, medical and nursing scholarships as well as support for the Floyd County Family Health Center.
The year 2020 was a year like no other and one we hope to never have to experience again. Those who stepped forward to meet the challenges of the novel coronavirus were our amazing healthcare providers. In fall 2020, Floyd Memorial Foundation polled Baptist Health Floyd employees asking them to nominate a fellow coworker who exemplified courage and tenacity throughout the onset of the pandemic in our community for the Healthcare Hero of the Year. We received so many amazing testimonies as to why certain individuals were chosen. Please see below a select few of the hundreds of heroes we have on staff at Baptist Health Floyd who have been and continue to work tirelessly and fearlessly to keep patients and the community-at-large safe. It’s our turn to support them. If you would like to make a donation to support them through our COVID-19 Emergency Fund or Adopt-A-Unit Fund, please donate now. It means so much to Baptist Health Floyd staff knowing that their community supports them in their daily efforts.
Gifts from the community are essential to assist with support for projects that cannot be funded through Baptist Health Floyd’s general operating revenue. Your gift, whether great or small, will help us continue to fund the important programs, services and effective health screenings for our community. For a complete listing of ways to give visit our Giving Opportunities page.
We thank you for your continued partnership, support for the health and well-being of our community members, and wish you and your family good health going forward.
