Amenities

Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation

The Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation was created in 1982 to raise funds for the equipment the hospital needs to stay abreast of technological change, and to replace worn and outdated items. More than 60% of all new hospital equipment is bought with money raised by the Foundation, which sponsors special events including dinners, auctions, and a charity golf tournament.[2]
