At Mary Rutan Hospital, we take our role as a community-based, not-for-profit hospital seriously. We support our local communities in many ways, focused on the health, safety and well-being of all that live, work and play in our community and by providing progressive, compassionate quality health care for all.
Mary Rutan Foundation funds many of these efforts, giving back to the community and its residents through community donations, grants, financial assistance programs and medical scholarships and loan programs.
