What is the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation?
The Forrest General Healthcare Foundation exists to support the mission of Forrest General Hospital, which is to provide high quality healthcare services accessible and available to the residents of south Mississippi. The Foundation assists with this goal by enhancing the health and wellness of Forrest General's service area through accepting donations and seeking out additional funding sources and grants. This organization exists to help ensure that future generations are able to count on Forrest General for their family's health, just as Pine Belt residents have done for more than 50 years.
"It is important as employees and as resident citizens to be involved in and supportive of the special projects that Forrest General has to offer. A little support from everyone can go a long way for Forrest General and the people we care for."
- Cindy Myrick, Forrest General employee
Currently, the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation is raising funds to support three main projects:
- Enhancement of Forrest General's new, technologically-advanced, family-centered Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
- The building of a new Forrest General Inpatient Hospice Home, the second of its kind in the state
- Continuation of Pine Grove Behavioral Health's Spiritual Grounds project, a place where art and nature converge to facilitate the healing process for patients and community members alike
"I choose to give to the Foundation because I believe in Forrest General, and the Foundation contributes to our community in ways that Forrest General may not otherwise be able to contribute."
- Sallie Worrell, Forrest General employee
