$1 million gift to Highlands-Cashiers Hospital Foundation matched by Mission

Written by 

The Highlands-Cashiers Hospital Foundation is $2 million richer thanks to a $1 million donation by philanthropist Jane Woodruff and a matching $1 million gift from Mission Health.  

Highlands-Cashiers Hospital recently announced it has merged with Mission, based in Asheville.

“I am very pleased to make this gift to Highlands-Cashiers Hopsital, which has provided compassionate and quality health care to families in our local area for more than three generations,” Woodruff said.  “I believe this new partnership with Mission Health will strengthen our hospital and enhance its capacity to provide exceptional local health care.” 

The new Highlands-Cashiers hospital board will have nine local members and three Mission representatives.

The HCH Foundation will remain a separate entity, under local ownership and control, and will continue to be responsible for providing financial support for the hospital’s capital and operational needs.
