The Legacy Circle

Those who provide to the Hospital through their will or estate are forever honored in Evangelical Community Hospital’s Legacy Circle.


An endowment is a charitable gift that is invested to earn interest. Annually, a distribution is made from the endowed fund to support the designated program. Unrestricted endowment distributions are used where needed most. 

Donors are welcome to support any existing endowment or contact the Development Office 570-522-2685 to learn about creating a lasting legacy by establishing a new endowed fund.
