Mary Elliot established Elliot Hospital in 1890 as a result of a significant planned gift and bequest, in addition to her deep belief in community-based healthcare.
Through the years, Elliot Hospital has strived to meet the communities ever-changing healthcare needs through acquiring state-of-the-art technology, securing the availability of an appropriate continuum of care, and implementing services designed to elevate our residents’ health and well-being. The result: Elliot Health System, in keeping with Mary Elliot’s vision, maintained its not-for-profit* status and emerged as a leader in providing comprehensive healthcare to the community.
It is in support of these ever-changing needs that the Mary & John Elliot Charitable Foundation (also a non-profit organization) plays a crucial role in securing economic resources imperative to preserving Elliot’s leadership status in providing quality healthcare. Together with Elliot Health System, The Mary & John Elliot Charitable Foundation seeks and accepts gifts that are deductible as charitable contributions, and which have a direct and immediate impact on the health and well-being of our local community.
