Memorial and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundations were established to provide philanthropic support to Memorial Healthcare System, whose mission is to heal the body, mind and spirit of those it touches, with the goal of improving the health of the community it serves. Today, Memorial Healthcare System is one of the largest public healthcare systems in the nation and highly regarded for its exceptional patient- and family-centered care.
Dedicated to supporting healthcare for the community served by Memorial Healthcare System, the Foundations are the central agency through which charitable contributions are made. A volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of prominent business and community leaders and physicians, assists the Foundations with their fundraising mission and oversees all aspects of the Foundations’ operations.
The Foundations raise funds through a variety of volunteer committees and councils that support our adult and pediatric patients in a multitude of capacities, from a community professionals group (Impact), golf committees and our signature Fairy Tall Ball committee (Diamond Angels), to a planned giving advisory group (Memorial Legacy Leaders) and breast cancer group (Pink Angels). We offer a number of events throughout the year and work with our community partners to help raise awareness and charitable support.
MHS facilities include Memorial Regional Hospital, Memorial Regional Hospital South, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Memorial Hospital West, Memorial Hospital Miramar, Memorial Hospital Pembroke, as well as the Memorial Manor nursing home and many specialty and urgent care clinics throughout Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
