Supporting the Cook Hospital for Over 25 Years
Hospitals in small towns all across Minnesota have closed their doors. Though some have survived by consolidating, most have dissolved – their staffs absorbed by larger medical centers and HMOs.
In spite of challenges and its location in a town of less than 1,000, the Cook Hospital in Cook, Minnesota, is defying the accepted fact that health care facilities can’t survive in small communities. Dedicated to individualized attention as well as state-of-the-art, high-quality medical services, the hospital is a product of a community that recognizes value and refuses alternatives.
At the W.C. Heiam Medical Foundation, we work to support programs, services and facilities that serve the medical needs of Cook health care area residents.
Even though the Cook Hospital is a thriving example of what is possible when a community bands together, the facility still struggles to make ends meet. A district-owned and legislatively formed body, the hospital can levy taxes for capital improvements, but has no means to fund the continual investments that must be made in high-tech equipment and outreach programs. The W.C. Heiam Medical Foundation is committed to making a difference in the health care available within our communities today and into the future.
Your support can help the Cook Hospital continue to provide the highest level of health care for everyone.
