Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation

BRH FoundationBartlett Regional Hospital Foundation was established in 1992 and incorporated in 1994 under IRS code 501(C) (3) for the purposes of maintaining the high standards of medical care available to those served by Bartlett Regional Hospital. The goal of the Foundation is to raise funds for needed, state-of-the-art medical equipment, technology, and improved health care services. The Foundation also provides health education and supports the promotion of medical study as well as research.

The first major project of the Foundation was the construction of Bartlett House, a Patient/Family lodging facility for of out-of-town patients. Bartlett House is conveniently located behind the Hospital and has eight guest rooms and a common area for cooking and relaxing. Through major funding from the Reifenstein Family, in the spring of 2003, the Foundation partnered with Renal Care Group to open the Reifenstein Dialysis Center, providing nine renal dialysis stations at the center located in the Mendenhall Valley.

GiftsMost recently, the Foundation has reopened and renamed the Hospital Gift Shop, “Blue Heron Gifts at Bartlett”. The Gift Shop Hours are 10:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and Blue Heron carries a variety of gifts, sundries, and fresh flowers. All profits go to funding the Foundation’s support of Bartlett Regional Hospital.

The Foundation has an active Board of Trustees overseeing fundraising and management of an endowment portfolio that yields regular dividends to provide financial support for operations as well as capital expenses. The Board is committed to building monetary investments in order to support the long-term growth needs of health care in the region. In addition, thanks to the Estate of Grace and Phil Edelman, the Board also oversees a Scholarship portfolio to provide scholarships to those seeking a career in the medical professions.
