Ways to Give

Through individual, civic, and corporate generosity, the Fund Development office raises funds to support the Hospital’s mission to its patients, employees, doctors, students and the community at large. The end result is the fulfillment of our most important mission: improving the quality of life in our community.

The Fund Development office provides essential help in maintaining our hospital’s independence as a private, non-profit community hospital, despite the healthcare industry’s current penchant for mergers and acquisitions. With a variety of advanced technologies and services, and some of the finest physicians in the region, Ohio Valley Hospital is consistently ranked among the best of hospitals, not just locally, but across the country. The considerate gifts of generous and grateful individuals has been a critical component in our formula for continued success.

Donors wishing to have a positive impact on the greater health of our community may choose from a variety of giving options. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our many gracious donors.
