Annual Appeal

Atlantic General Hospital Foundation's 2017-2018 Annual Campaign

Atlantic General Hospital, your local not-for-profit hospital, has been providing quality health care since 1993 to the residents and visitors of Worcester, Wicomico, Somerset and Sussex counties. Thanks to the generosity of our dedicated community, Atlantic General has been able to invest in vital programs and services necessary to better serve you and your loved ones.

As a not-for-profit community Hospital, philanthropic support of the Annual Appeal allows us to continue to work with our faith-based partners to provide mission-driven community education and health services, as well as supporting many other specialty programs at Atlantic General Hospital.

Community Benefits – Atlantic General Hospital provides mission-driven health education and services to the community free of charge, or at reduced cost. From July 2015 through June 2016, Atlantic General Hospital provided $12,778,615 in community benefits including:

  • Community Needs Services (health fairs, flu shot clinics, faith-based partnerships, speakers bureau, free health screenings, among others)
  • Medical Education
  • Community Health Services
  • Medicaid Assessments
  • Financial Assistance/Charity Care
  • Community Benefit Operations

Atlantic General Hospital is expanding existing community resources and creating new ones to achieve our 2020 vision, which is to improve the health of the population, enhance the patient care experience, and reduce the cost of care. As medical care advances, your community hospital is committed to staying at the cutting edge – for you, for your loved ones, for every person in our community.

Unrestricted gifts to the Foundation have offered AGH the flexibility to invest in additional areas. This year, the focus of our appeal is on supporting our mission to the community we serve rather than a specific initiative. Your gift to Atlantic General will help us continue to strengthen hospital programs, enhance our services and medical technologies, attract the best clinical staff, fund renovation projects, and maintain a healing environment in the coming year.
