Sturgis Hospital Foundation

  Our Mission
The Sturgis Hospital is a nonprofit organization that created a Foundation Advisory Board that exists to raise funds and other means of support for Sturgis Hospital. The Foundation Advisory Board values the community's health needs and to that end works to generate financial and volunteer support needed to improve the community's health and wellness. Gifts to the Foundation Funds help ensure that our hospital will continue to provide quality and compassionate care to the patients it serves throughout our community and region. We believe that the long-term viability of our hospital will be enhanced by the support of the community as expressed by their gifts to the Hospital's Foundation Funds.

Your future healthcare needs, along with the needs of your loved ones, depend upon community support for the Sturgis Hospital Foundation Funds.

Sturgis Hospital strives to improve its equipment, facilities and services, and to implement the latest technological advances available in order to stay up-to-date with the changing needs of our patients. Your support can assist in that effort.

  Our Beginnings
The original Sturgis Memorial Hospital (now known as the Grobhiser Medical & Professional Building) was the vision of William C. Grobhiser. His bequest along with donations from several area families and organizations were the beginnings of Sturgis Hospital which opened its doors February 20, 1925 and has been treating patients ever since….

Over the years, Sturgis Hospital has strived to maintain its quality of care, state-of-the-art equipment and utilize the newest technologies and medical treatment to care for a growing population. The Hospital is really about caring for a community of people-then, now and always-we were here for your grandparents and parents, and we want to be here for your children and grandchildren.
