Hospital Greatest Need

The Greatest Needs fund at the Howard Young Foundation allows us to invest your gifts in projects that keep our hospitals up to date, innovative and competitive. Together with our generous donors, we are building a lasting healthcare legacy in the Northwoods that brings the best healthcare to residents and visitors alike. We want to ensure that patients are confident that they can be treated close to home. All greatest need funded projects are requested by the hospitals based on their needs. There is a greatest need fund for both Howard Young Medical Center and Ascension Eagle River Hospital.

We appreciate your contributions.

The goal to make this project possible is on going. Please help us make a difference in our community.
