Our Mission

The mission of the Big Stone Health Care Foundation is:

To secure and expend financial aid for the operations, maintenance and expansion of the health care facilities and service of Ortonville Area Health Services, a not-for-profit corporation, and to otherwise contribute to the health care and maintenance of the people of the Ortonville area.

 “Power is the ability to do good things for others.”

–Brooke Astor

Like everything else in life, our healthcare needs, our healthcare facilities and the needs of the individuals they employ are ever-changing. The Big Stone Health Care Foundation is proud to be able to work with you and your healthcare providers to maintain and expand the excellent facilities we currently utilize and to provide for their, and all of our futures. Thanks to your giving, we have been able to undertake such things as:

  • $2.2 million “Building a Healthy Future” Capital Campaign
  • Kidney Dialysis Unit
  • Outreach Center
  • Physician Recruitment
  • Community Fitness
  • CT Scan and other equipment needs

The Foundation is also able to offer educational funding assistance to students just beginning careers in health care, continuing education or furthering their education for those already in the medical profession, as well as funding the training for those desiring to become EMTs.   These educational loans are granted with the expectation that recipients will remain or return to OAHS, further enriching our health care system.
