Our impact

Since 2007, the Women of Meridian Park annual membership gifts have raised more than $500,000 to support projects that change lives. Over the years, these caring women have purchased innovative hospital equipment, provided critical educational opportunities, and assisted with funding meaningful endeavors, such compassion bags for cancer patients, Mammograms, wellness screenings, and physical therapy for underserved women.


A few projects we have supported:

  • We provide resources for individuals who have overcome cancer or are courageously living with cancer, such as fitness programs and nutritional services.
  • We continue to fund heated neck wraps, post-mastectomy bras and post-surgery compassion bags for breast cancer patients.
  • Our members embrace services that assist our pediatric patients in feeling safe and encouraged. This may include interactive panels for the Emergency Department waiting area, or medical equipment and therapy tools for child development and rehabilitation.
  • We support Legacy Meridian Park’s Care Management program, designed to assist patients experiencing financial barriers.
