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.
