Ways to Connect to Patients

While our patient care philosophy depends greatly on engaging families to be present as part of the healing process, the decision to limit family presence was difficult and made only after careful consideration. We understand how important it is for you to support your loved ones and friends who are patients at our hospital.
Please see the following ways you can connect to patients:

How You Can Help

COVID-19 is spreading throughout our community and nation and the Medical Center Health System Foundation is working to help ease the financial and emotional burdens this is causing.

The MCHS Foundation

As new challenges related to COVID-19 arise, the MCHS Foundation encourages anyone willing and able to contribute to the COVID-19 Foundation Fund. This will help purchase PPE and other necessary items for MCHS staff working the frontlines of this crisis.

Medical Center Hospital is committed to providing 5 Star care to all of our patients, but we want to make sure we are taking care of our employees as well. We are looking at adding an “Oasis Room” – a quiet, peaceful room, where employees can escape the chaos for a moment. The room will cost $10,000 for renovations and furniture; we have worked with our friends from Walmart to create a “Registry for Good” to help purchase some of the items needed for that room as well as other essentials.

While conditions are not ideal, with your support, we will move forward. We are committed to providing our patients and employees 5 Star care.

You may see donation boxes in local stores for hospitals. Below is a list of needed items that will be helpful to Medical Center Hospital:

  • Bleach wipes
  • Coffee filters for homemade masks
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Anti-bacterial soap
  • Lotion if hand sanitizer begins to breakdown skin of users
  • All-purpose beach cleaner spray

The MCHS Foundation is thankful for your commitment, and in these challenging times, we are especially appreciative of your support of our medical staff, patients, and support staff.

Again, to make a monetary donation, please visit The MCHS Foundation and choose COVID 19 in the designation box. You can also contact the MCHS Foundation Office at (432) 640-1269 to coordinate.
