Where my gift is needed most – NM Healthcare General Fund:

Unrestricted support is vital to North Memorial. As a nonprofit, independent health care organization, almost 100 percent of North Memorial’s net revenue is required to maintain operations, leaving a very small percentage to invest in technology, facilities and new services.

Women’s & Children’s Services:

This fund helps support North Memorial’s Women and Children's Services focuses on serving patients and their families from birth to adulthood. Our Family Birth Center provides care for all families, including high-risk care for mothers from our Maternal Fetal Medicine Center or for babies in our Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and our certified Lactation Consultants provide mothers with breastfeeding support and guidance.
