Annual Fund

A gift to the Annual Fund for NVRH helps meet the greatest needs of the hospital, such as the renovation or upgrading of spaces (like the Birth Center and Comfort Palliative Care rooms), purchase of state-of-the-art equipment, recruitment of health care providers, and ongoing patient and community wellness programs.  Your gift will be joined with others to ensure the highest quality of health care for our community.  Make your gift now. 

Emergency Department Expansion Project

An increased number of treatment rooms.  Dedicated rooms for treating geriatric and pediatric patients, and those with mental health challenges. Improved and expanded ambulance bay, private family consultation spaces, and adequate work stations for providers. A portable X-ray capable room.  We want the community to receive the highest level of swift and efficient treatment within a welcoming space.
