About us

Dr. Ponec

The Salem Hospital Foundation was established in 1968 by a group of Salem citizens interested in advancing healthcare through donations.

It is a charitable, tax-exempt organization that supports medical and medically related projects of Salem Hospital.

The Foundation's 15 volunteer directors help raise funds and manage the resources of the Foundation, while distributing the funds according to the wishes of those who have given.
