How Memorials work for Liberty Medical Center

When we lose a family member or friend and we use one of those Foundation memorial envelopes what happens to the money? 

First and foremost a letter is sent directly to the family announcing your donation has been received by the Foundation in memory of their loved one. 

The family also receives a letter asking them if they want to designate the use of these memorials, their options are anyone of the parts of the Liberty Medical Center departments on the LMC Campus, be it clinic, long term care, acute care, Wheat Country Estate, radiology, physical therapy, residents activities, emergency care unit etc.

 If after four weeks the family does not have a specific designation then memorial dollars are placed in a fund called spendable memorials. These combined memorials are spendable at the discretion of the Foundation Board Members. The board uses this fund to assist with the purchase of more expenses items not funded by budget restraints.

Your memorials gifts are a lasting memory for your friend and family. “Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together”

Our heartfelt thanks for your overwhelming consideration and generosity which has allowed our facility to be the constant beacon of hope for medical needs of our communities of the Hi-Line!

Liberty Medical Center, like other rural medical facilities has continued to be dominated with ever changing rules and regulations of Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement policy for funding the operations of the hospital. As these uncertain times for reimbursement of services continue to shake down the funding for our system, it most important the we sustain funding for the upgrades necessary to acquire the state of  the art medical equipment and supplies for our physicians and medical staff ability to provide beneficial health treatments for their patients.

Our hospital is funded in part by the mill levy from our Liberty County Tax payers. The Advisory Board members of Liberty Medical Center have designated these funds for capital equipment and improvements of the facility. None of the funds are spent for payroll and administrative costs. We thank those taxpayers for passage of the mill levy, and we will work to earn your continued support.

Please reflect on the personal satisfaction that you as donors can gain from Year End giving to the Hi-Line Health Foundation. Your charitable gifts may include bonds, cash, life insurance, mutual shares, retirement plans; securities are just some of the possibilities to consider. Always consult your tax accountant or financial planners for strategies that would benefit you and your future through charitable gifts.

Thanks again for remembering the Hi-Line Health Foundation with your gifts larger or small. They are most important to the survival of our hospital.
