The mission of the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation is to promote healthy living through programs that provide education and improved access to healthcare.
The mission of UPMC Jameson Community Health Foundation is to promote and support the charitable mission and activities of UPMC Jameson and its affiliated healthcare and human service organizations through fundraising and other supportive activities.
The UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation was formed in 1998 after a reorganization of the Horizon Hospital System Foundation and a generous $1,000,000 endowment from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. The Jameson Community Health Foundation joined UPMC after the purchase of Jameson Memorial Hospital was purchased by UPMC in 2016.
The Foundation boards have representation from the UPMC Horizon and Jameson Boards of Directors, hospital medical staff and administration and community members. Together, they all play a vital role in assessing and acting upon the needs of our hospitals and our community.
Our mission is primarily carried out by supporting the needs of patients, health care providers and our community. The Foundations work with our hospitals by assisting with specific projects, raising capital, and identifying and mitigating community health concerns.
