Believe You Can Make a Difference

World-Class Care For Generations to Come!

Believe You Can Make a Difference

Over the past 55 years, Memorial's extraordinary healthcare team has built a distinguished reputation for leading-edge medicine delivered with compassion and caring. To meet the needs of our community and the ever-increasing number of families who turn to us in their time of need, we have embarked on a new chapter in our history.

We are in the midst of "Believe – You Can Make a Difference," our capital campaign to support the extensive expansion of our facilities and services. To date, we have raised $28 million toward our $36 million campaign goal. Every contribution is important and can help ensure world-class healthcare is available for families and children for generations to come.

Plans include a new freestanding four-story children's hospital with pediatric operating rooms, a 24-bed medical and surgical unit, a 24-bed oncology unit and a walkway connecting the new hospital with the existing children's hospital and the Memorial Regional Hospital campus. In addition, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will be expanded and renovated to include private rooms, upgraded technological systems and a multipurpose room for educational classes.
