Q: Why don’t our tax dollars pay for medical equipment?

Tax dollars only pay for the basics of health care. As medical research progresses and our population continues to grow at a rapid pace, the cost of specialized health services increases beyond the basics.
That’s why your donations are so important. They fill the gap between government funding and the greater needs of the hospital. They buy vital equipment, renovate out-of-date hospital units, and support programs and services. Simply, your donations give our doctors and nurses the tools they need to provide the best possible care to every patient at Richmond Hospital and within the community.

Q: Can I direct my gift to a specific area of the hospital?

You can direct your gift to a specific piece of equipment, a specific department, an ongoing campaign or our most urgent needs. Just let us know.
