The Frank R. Howard Foundation reaches out to the community through a newsletter with updates regarding development of the medical campus, current fundraising campaigns, and additional information we believe is of interest.

The completion of the new hospital, as well as the medical office building (The Lamprich Center), completed a 10-year capital campaign effort that proved very successful for the Frank R. Howard Foundation, the Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital/Adventist Health, and the community.

Adjusting to this shared achievement, the Frank R. Howard Foundation Board of Directors continues to plan for the next phase of build-out for the medical campus.
