Support Norton Heart & Vascular Institute

When it comes to your heart, you want access to the care you need most, and you want it close to home. That’s why Norton Heart & Vascular Institute and the Norton Healthcare Foundation are working to ensure our community has just that, for you and your loved ones.

According to the American Heart Association, nearly half of all adults in the United States have some type of cardiovascular disease. Thanks to support from our community, caregivers and our hospitals can stay up to date with medical advances and technology, thereby maintaining the community’s access to high-quality cardiovascular care.

Tax Benefits of Giving

Gifts to the Norton Healthcare Foundation offer tax benefits. You may designate your tax-deductible gift for a specific use or have it go to the area of greatest need.

Why Should I Give to the Norton Healthcare Foundation?

  1. Norton Healthcare is not-for-profit and relies on the generosity of the community to support programs, hospital improvements and education. All money earned through services provided is reinvested in the organization. We do not have stocks; we don’t pay shareholders. Our board of directors is made up of volunteers from the community. All of the money comes back to the community in the form of health and wellness services.
  2. We want to make sure our hospitals stay up to date on medical advances and technology. Reimbursement from insurance may cover the cost of providing treatment but doesn’t cover the purchase of new equipment; services such as pastoral care to support patients and their families in times of emergencies and illness; or facility upgrades, such as providing comfortable waiting areas for patients and their families.
  3. Access to full-service health care is very important to a community’s quality of life. Having a full range of health services is important to the region’s economy as government leaders seek to attract new businesses and, in turn, those employers attract new employees.
  4. When you need medical care, you don’t want to have to travel hours to an unfamiliar city. The work of the foundation also helps ensure that when you need health care, it is available close to home.
