History

​We began with a goal to raise enough money for desperately needed hospitals. We've grown through expanding those hospitals, providing needed medical equipment and supplies, and helping ensure access to quality healthcare for all residents of Utah County. We continue to search out healthcare needs in the community and meet them. Our future of giving and serving continues to be bright.
