The W. Gale Reish, MD Community Health Endowment Fund

The W. Gale Reish, MD Community Health Endowment Fund was established by the Hospital’s Board of Directors as a tribute to Dr. Reish for his dedication to the Hospital and the community. Dr. Reish was a member of Evangelical’s management team, retiring in June 2000. He helped to establish the Evangelical Medical Services Organization and was instrumental in recruiting more than 20 new physicians, which has had a direct impact on the growth and strong financial standing of the Hospital.

The Reish Endowment Fund provides annual income to assist the Community Health Education Department in providing programs and screenings in the community. As programs and services expand to meet demanding needs, additional gifts to the Reish Endowment provide for growth in new and existing programs.
