Southampton Hospital Foundation

The Southampton Hospital Foundation, a separate nonprofit corporation with an independent Board of Trustees, supports Southampton Hospital's mission to deliver healthcare services and expand clinical programs to meet the needs of the community.

Although the Southampton Hospital Foundation has existed for some time, recent changes to its structure and mission have put greater emphasis on fund raising. The Foundation, working in collaboration with the Hospital’s Board of Directors, concentrates its efforts on increasing critical philanthropic support to ensure Southampton’s future and high-quality healthcare for all of our neighbors on the East End.
