  • Supporting Community Health-related initiatives.
  • Improving the patient experience at Aspirus Medford Hospital & Clinics.
  • Fundraising to support Aspirus Medford Hospital & Clinics.
  • Measuring board effectiveness.

The Aspirus Medford Foundation gifts up to $200,000 annually to enhance and strengthen the quality of care provided at Aspirus Medford Hospital & Clinics.
