Cottage Grove Medical Center Foundation

Drive-up entry way into Cottage Grove Community Medical Center

The Cottage Grove Community Hospital Foundation was established in 1976 with a mission to encourage charitable support for local hospital and medical clinic services for South Lane and North Douglas County area residents.

Over the years, generous donations to the Cottage Grove Community Medical Center Foundation have provided a variety of equipment and programs to benefit patients and improve the health and welfare of local residents, including:

  • Automated ventilation system equipment for patients in need of breathing assistance
  • On-going quality training for hospital staff
  • Comfort and safety equipment for radiology patients
  • Community outreach and education programs such as the Trauma Nurses Talk Tough clinic for young drivers, and a sexually transmitted disease prevention project
  • Wheelchairs
