Our Mission: 
We believe our community deserves local access to world-class health care. We are committed to uniting our community to advance the health of our region through advocacy and philanthropic support for Lima Memorial Health System.

The Lima Memorial Foundation: Supporting Local Health Care

Lima Memorial Health System was created by the people of Lima, is supported by the people of Lima and is responsible to the people of Lima. We are a truly independent healthcare system, not funded by a church or government entities. And, as a locally owned and operated health system, Lima Memorial is deeply invested in the health of our community. Lima Memorial’s remarkable service to the residents in and around the greater Lima region would not be possible without the dedication, commitment and financial support of our many donors. The Lima Memorial Foundation works to ensure local access to the highest quality of health care for those who live in, work in or visit the greater Lima region.

The Lima Memorial Foundation has a distinguished history of bringing healthcare advancements to our region, thanks to community support. Some of those advancements include:

2006 – $5 million raised to expand the Timmermeister Family Surgery Center

2011 – Established Level II Special Care Nursery to care for newborns, 32-weeks of age and above, and those requiring more advanced care

2012 – Robotics program launched with debut of first da Vinci Surgical Robot, a $1.8 million investment

2015 – Robotics continued to flourish with second da Vinci Surgical Robot

We are grateful for your generosity in supporting our philanthropic mission.
