Fry Healthcare Foundation
Mission Statement: The mission of the Fry Healthcare Foundation is to serve as a non-profit agency dedicated to collecting and dispersing funds, goods, and services to meet the ongoing needs of Boundary Community Hospital and Extended Care Facility. The Foundation recognizes the need for networking life-long healthcare facilities and services in a rural county such as ours. The Foundation assists individuals and organizations wanting to support and contribute to our healthcare facilities whether it is financially or in kind (time and effort). Gifts received by the Foundation are used to purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment, finance facility construction and renovation, and fund ongoing programs and services at the hospital.
