Our Mission


The mission of Wilson Medical Center Foundation is to build relationships and enhance the resources that support Wilson Medical Center.


Our Purpose


The Wilson Medical Center Foundation serves as the fundraising arm of Wilson Medical Center. We work to create a healthier community by raising funds to invest in critical areas of healthcare needs, and we are funded by donations from former patients, foundations, hospital employees, corporations, organizations, and generous individuals like you.

When you and your loved ones need health care, isn't it wonderful to find a level of professional and personal care so close to home that strives to excel in all that they offer? When you donate to the Wilson Medical Center Foundation, you join a caring community of givers who are committed to ensuring that they, their family, friends and their neighbors will continue to receive compassionate care and excellent service that can be trusted today and for years to come.

Our communities are what make this area and hospital so special. At Wilson Medical Center, our staff endeavors to treat each patient as a friend. After all, most of our employees and their families live right in this area. We invite you to share our commitment by helping your friends and neighbors. With the support of people like you, we will remain a quality, caring hospital for years to come.

We are a 501 © (3) non-profit organization and donations are fully tax-deductible. As a non-profit hospital, we are grateful for your contribution to sustaining essential services that benefit our community. Due to the ever-changing needs of our patients, there is an increased need for continued education and cutting-edge equipment. Funds given to the Foundation contribute to scholarships, state-of-the-art technology and equipment, and education for patients that will aid them in making their recovery a top priority.

Our Foundation is guided by a board of directors composed of community members who want to continue our tradition of medical excellence in our rural area. Our current board members are:

Casey Lair, Chair

DeAnna Vaughn, M.D. Vice-Chair

John Gutschenritter, CPA (Treasurer)

Dennis Shelby, CEO

Doug Depew

Rochelle Chronister

Kenny Carter

Mina Olson, Auxiliary Representative

Joe Marchant

Janice Reese, Foundation Director

Sheila Mitchell, Foundation Assistant
