JGH Foundation

Since Jackson General Hospital was founded in 1964, our mission has been to provide high-quality healthcare to our community — with generous doses of care and compassion. This mission has made Jackson General Hospital the most comprehensive patient facility in its service area, which includes the cities of Ripley and Ravenswood, as well as the surrounding communities. 

Gifts of all sizes have the power to save lives. Whatever the size or form of your contribution, you will ensure that Jackson General Hospital continues to provide excellent, innovative health care for our community. 

Your gift is truly an investment in the future and, with your help, Jackson General Hospital will continue to lead the way of improving the health and well being of our community. We invite you to join us by pledging your ongoing financial support to the Hospital today.

Why Should I Give to Jackson General Hospital?

  • Jackson General Hospital is a community-owned organization that relies on the generosity of the community to support programs, hospital improvements and education. All money earned through services provided is reinvested into the organization. We do not have stocks, and we don't pay shareholders.
  • Our Board of Directors is made up of volunteers from the community. All of the money comes back to the community in the form of health services.
  • We want to make sure that our hospital stays up-to-date on medical advances and technology. Reimbursement from insurance may cover the cost of providing treatment but doesn't cover the much-needed purchases of new equipment, charity care, facility upgrades, etc.
  • Access to full-service health care is very important to a community's quality of life. Having a full range of health services is important to the region's economy as governmental leaders seek to attract new businesses and, in turn, those employers attract new employees.
  • When you need medical care, you don't want to have to travel to Charleston or Parkersburg. The work of the Foundation also helps ensure that when you need health care, it will be available close to home at an affordable cost.  Make a donation now to ensure the health care you need will be there when you need it.

Types of Gifts

    1.  Unrestricted
