Lebanon Community Hospital Foundation

The communities of east Linn County have supported Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital since the 1940s, when community leaders starting raising funds for a new hospital. The hospital opened on its current site in 1952 and in the decades that have followed, the hospital has benefited from continued financial support for facility expansions and new services.

Through generous community support and employee engagement, the Lebanon Community Hospital Foundation has enhanced nearly every aspect of the hospital and clinics in Lebanon, Sweet Home and Brownsville. Your support ensures excellent care and compassion for all our patients and their families through the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment, expanding hospital facilities and adding to the natural healing environment for which our hospital is known.

We invite you to look further at how our donors are building the health of our community, and how you can join in the effort.

For more information, please contact Betty Koehn, executive director, at BJK@samhealth.org.
