Dear Friends of Avita

You are an important part of our healthcare community. Strong commitment from the people of Crawford & Richland counties is what created and sustained our local hospitals and clinics from the very beginning. 

Also important is the ability to have local access to a full range of healthcare services when we need them. It is through your support that we are able to continue offering those important medical services.

The sole purpose of the Avita Health Foundation is to provide financial assistance to Avita Health System. This financial support goes a long way toward ensuring we achieve our mission. All funds received are used only to benefit  Bucyrus, Galion, & Ontario Hospitals, related clinics, and its patients.

By contributing to the Avita Health Foundation you leave a positive fingerprint on the future of healthcare for generations to come.
