Why Give

Most of us don’t give much thought to hospitals or other health care services until we need them. Yet, at one time or another, we seek health care for ourselves or someone we love. We all want and deserve the best care possible when we need it.

At Atlantic General, we are fortunate to have an excellent, not-for-profit hospital with superb doctors and a good financial base.

But there are no guarantees that the current financial base will always exist.

Every day, hospitals and other health care providers face new financial challenges in the delivery of health care.

What can you do to ensure quality health care for Atlantic General Hospital?

Your gifts, combined with the contributions of others, will maintain the “margin of excellence” for AGH and our community. You will experience personal satisfaction and the joy of knowing that you have helped to preserve expanded health care services for future generations.

Hundreds of individuals and businesses already support Atlantic General Hospital and Health System. Take a moment to browse through some of our giving opportunities, or contact us now to discuss how you can help Atlantic General be here for generations to come.

Atlantic General Hospital Foundation's 2021-2022 Annual Appeal

As a not-for-profit, community-based hospital, Atlantic General Hospital and Health System holds itself accountable to the people we serve — you, your loved ones, and every person who lives in or visits our community.

In the past, donations to the Annual Appeal have helped to fund Atlantic General Hospital’s major second floor renovation; expand breast health services by adding a second 3D mammography unit in the Eunice Q. Sorin Women’s Diagnostic Center; purchase major medical equipment such as MRI, Bone Density, Ultrasound, Telemedicine and Smart Beds; develop SAFE (Sexual Assault Forensic Exam) Program and many more projects.

Looking ahead, dollars from this year’s Annual Appeal will be directed to:

  • Community Benefits: continuing to provide much needed services to the community such as the COVID-19 vaccine and flu shot clinics, school partnerships, free health screenings, health fairs and more.
  • Intensive Care Unit Renovations: to improve patient experience and safety, as well as physician and staff efficiency.
  • Funding the Ambulatory Surgery Center: which will house primary, specialty, procedural and therapeutic services in one convenient location for residents and visitors.
  • Investing in Ambient Technology (AI): allowing our providers more time to engage with patients face to face.

Atlantic General Hospital has been a pioneer in health care, bringing much-needed primary care and advanced specialty services to our community. Please join our donors in continuing to move health care in our community forward while also bolstering Atlantic General Hospital’s evolution as a leading provider of medical care.

Almost three decades ago, AGH dramatically changed the landscape of health and wellness for residents and visitors alike, and continues to strive to deliver the best medical care for all who need it. We deeply appreciate your past support and hope that you will consider making a gift to our hospital once more.
