Terrebonne General Health System Foundation
Over the past 65+ years, Terrebonne General has been committed to the community, and our commitment to comprehensive care is endless. Through our donors’ generous support and the help of dedicated volunteers, our hospital has been able to meet the needs of our community members. Although many people take advantage of these wonderful services, many others are not able to get proper transportation on a regular basis or for special programs, but we seek to change that.
About the Foundation
The initial purpose of the Foundation is to enhance Terrebonne General’s ability for expanded outreach services. The plan is to purchase and furnish a medical vehicle to allow our healthcare professionals to go into the individual communities of Terrebonne and enable citizens, especially the elderly and younger children, to seek healthcare from professionals in the vehicle within their own communities. Initial target sites are the Senior Centers administered by the Terrebonne Council on Aging, VFW, and American Legion Centers and, especially during summer months, summer youth camps. Healthcare professionals will be able to check blood pressure, inquire and answer basic health questions, administer flu shots, and, on occasion, conduct mini-workshops on such topics as diabetes, obesity, cardio-vascular issues, and so on. At the same time, routine mini check-ups will allow senior citizens to be better informed of their health-related issues. With the help of the community, The Foundation for Terrebonne General Health System will provide the needed funds to provide expanded outreach services at no or little cost to the recipients of this special traveling care unit.
The Foundation for Terrebonne General Health System, a 501(c)3, non-profit organization, offers financial resources to the hospital. Through the generous support of the Tri-Parish area community, the Foundation allows our hospital to continue to build upon its reputation of providing professional health services. Tax-deductible financial gifts to the Foundation make a difference in the lives of our patients and to the overall physical health and economic well-being of our community.
The mission of the Terrebonne General Health System Foundation is to develop and maintain a comprehensive program of financial giving in the community. The sole purpose of these financial donations is to promote, develop, and expand the services, functions, purpose, and mission of providing exceptional healthcare with compassion.
