Community Involvement

At PRMC we take seriously our role as a contributing member of the community. Our employees are active members of many civic and service organizations and we contribute to community events and services. Our meeting rooms are used free-of-charge by support groups and service organizations.

All people seeking care at PRMC receive care, regardless of their ability to pay. Charity care and the unpaid costs of public programs such as Medicaid and Medicare use a portion of the funds set aside for community benefits and services.

Community Support

The tradition of community support began in 1948 when members of the Pratt community contributed funds to purchase medical equipment and patient room furniture for the opening of the hospital. The tradition of giving to Pratt Regional Medical Center continues, enabling the hospital to keep up with advances in medical and health technology.


  • Gifts and Bequests Committee founded on April 14, 1975 to advise the public concerning the needs of the hospital for lifesaving and health care facilities and equipment. As of September 1999, the Gifts and Bequests Committee had accepted $1,000,000 in donations.
  • Pratt Health Foundation (PHF) founded on June 12, 1990 to promote and fund medical equipment, health projects and health programs. The Foundation also provides professional, no-cost, no-obligation estate planning for anyone interested in understanding the complexities of dispersing estate assets.
  • The PRMC Auxiliary organized in 1977 to help provide caring atmosphere at PRMC. The Auxilians have contributed thousands of hours of volunteer services and annually sponsor several fund raising events for the benefit of the medical center.
