About the Foundation

The Healing & Healthcare Foundation is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization that was created to help provide funds to the under and uninsured. The Foundation establishes a means for community members, businesses and employees to financially support the care provided by the Eaton County Health & Rehabilitation Services (ECHRS).

The majority of the funding that ECHRS receives is derived directly from Medicaid. Typically, the cost to provide care to our residents and patients exceeds the amount that Medicaid reimburses the facility. The foundation helps to bridge that gap and provides over $400,000 per year in charity care. 


The Foundation Mission

The purpose of the foundation is to recover and administer funds as a means of continual financial support to continue our proud tradition of providing quality healthcare to all community members (regardless of their ability to pay), facility expansions, technology/equipment improvements, and new programs to enhance resident care.
