Lake Taylor Foundation
Supporting Lake Taylor’s Tradition of Exceptional Care
The Lake Taylor Transitional Care Hospital Foundation facilitates and promotes charitable investment in support of the Hospital’s mission to provide a continuum of patient care ranging from long-term acute care hospital services to skilled and intermediate nursing care.
Created in 2004, the 501(C)(3) not-for-profit organization is governed by a board made up of business, civic and medical leaders from throughout the region appointed by the Hospital’s Board of Commissioners. Through the steady stewardship of the funds contributed by the Hospital, and charitable gifts received from patients, families, and the community, we support the mission of the Hospital and enhance patient experiences.
Serving our community for over 130 years – see what we’re all about.
Lake Taylor Foundation Board establishes a joint Palliative Care program with EVMS.
Through the work of the Foundation, we have been able to make many improvements to our facility and its existing programs and equipment. Over the last decade the Foundation has invested over $3 million dollars in support of the Hospital’s mission. Here are just a few of the many ways we have put your charitable dollars to work:
