People give to programs they feel passionate about, to causes they believe in, to organizations that have made a difference in their lives. Over and over, donors have told us, through their gifts, that they believe in Mary Greeley Medical Center and they support our extraordinary vision for the future.
Our donors, both individual and corporate, are partners who make it possible for us to provide the high level of care that is available today. Whether you supported one of our special events, made an annual gift or donated in any other number of ways, we thank you.

VIDEO: Dr. Joe Rhoades
Dr. Joe Rhoades was a long-time radiation oncologist in the William R. Bliss Cancer Center who left behind a legacy of compassion and generosity. Watch this short video to learn more.
The Dr. Joe Rhoades Cancer Compassion Fund provides support to patients and families beyond what the hospital is able to provide. Assistance is based on financial need and is designed to respond to the unique medical needs of patients and their families, which can include gas cards for those who travel far distances, overnight accommodations and special treatment related needs.
For someone in the battle of their life, these expenses can quickly become a financial hardship and an overwhelming distraction from their healing process. The Compassion Fund provides the ability to help patients and families who need that extra little bit of assistance in order to help them live the best quality of life while going through treatment. In addition, these funds help bring peace of mind during a time that is extremely stressful.

provides special care and support for the terminally ill, their families and loved ones. The tranquil setting of the Garden of Remembrance provides a special space for families to honor the lives of their loved ones. More than 600 bricks donated in memory of loved ones currently line the paths.
