Your donations at work
Each year, the Grande Ronde Hospital Foundation Board of Directors selects patient care equipment and projects to fund which may otherwise not get funded, or that have maximum patient care impact. There have been countless projects over the years, in all departments, some big some small. All with the purpose of delivering on the promise of "Big city medicine, hometown touch" where community members can get the best possible healthcare right here in Northeast Oregon, without having to travel to the big city.
Some past projects include:
- Helistop on GRH campus
- 3D mammography machine
- Telemedicine robots
- The Torch (x4)
- Sim Man 3G training mannequin.
Our current fundraising focus is our Healthier Together campaign, which will raise funds for the Grande Ronde Hospital Campus Expansion construction project, which will house new and expanded operating rooms as well as a new dietary department and cafeteria. Please see our campaign page for more details.

Kim's Story: Detecting Cancer Early
In 2017 we were able to fund the purchase of a 3D mammography machine, and its importance was immediately seen. Kim was one of the first patients to get a mammogram from this new machine, see her story.
Sim Man 3G Simulation Mannequin
In healthcare, education and training is key. You need to know the latest information, techniques, and actions to take for the best patient outcomes. Just reading these is not enough to put them into action, they must be practiced and trained upon, especially in a group setting. The Sim Man simulation system allows for real time, dynamic training for individuals and teams.
Urgent Care Imaging Services
For the first time in Union County, an x-ray system is now available outside of the hospital and Orthopedic clinic. Thanks to an anonymous donor, this system is now up and running for your convenience.
2020 Foundation Projects
One of the goals of the GRH Foundation is to make world-class medical care available at home. Part of that equation is making sure our amazing team has the best tools available to take care of our patients. Some equipment is designed to bring care to you. We also are bringing simple ways we can reduce the need for patients to transfer while allowing them to stay close to home and keep costs down. Other projects help our teams maximize efficiency, and make our facilities cleaner and safer for everyone who visits. The Foundation is pleased to continue to deliver big-city medicine with a hometown touch.
