Foundation Mission

To strengthen our community by strengthening Memorial's healing ministry of Christ.

This is the time for humankindness


Support the Healthcare Heroes Care Fund

Since March 2020, our medical staff has been dealing with unprecedented challenges of treating COVID-19 patients and fighting COVID-19 in our community.  We are implementing a program to provide tools for our nurses, doctors and other health care professionals to take care of their emotional well-being. Reducing workplace stress, increasing mental toughness, and developing strategies for staff engagement are priorities that have a positive impact on the value and quality of medical care affecting patient, doctor, and ultimately the broader community’s well-being. 

The Healthcare Heroes Care Fund will ensure front-line medical staff feel supported by the community.  Whether it be financial support for those struggling to provide for their families, equipment to ensure staff safety or our program to help care for their well-being, your contributions will directly impact Health Care Heroes at CHI Memorial.

You may make a gift HERE to the Healthcare Heroes Care Fund or call (423) 495-4438.

Now, more than ever, your gift of any size will make a huge impact on our efforts to combat this pandemic.

Please join us in sharing humankindness.

With gratitude,

Jennifer Nicely
