In 1996 The Community Hospital – Fairfax’s Board of Directors wisely established the Community Healthcare Foundation. This foundation was established to manage the hospital’s assets and support major equipment purchases, employee education initiatives and community health events. The Foundation has since evolved into the fundraising and endowment arm of the hospital.

It is the Mission of Community Healthcare Foundation to develop relationships that enhance the quality of healthcare Community Hospital-Fairfax provides to our community. Our vision is to create opportunities for the current generation to provide for future generations. 

The Community Healthcare Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers from around our community. Each person is dedicated to ensuring quality healthcare is accessible to our community for generations to come.

Our Values
