The Margaretville Health Foundation’s mission is to support the needs of Margaretville Hospital and Mountainside Residential Care Center by building a strong and dynamic endowment through tax-deductible gifts, transfers of securities, bequests through wills, trusts and matching grants. “Every dollar we raise stays in Margaretville and directly supports the hospital and nursing home,” said Brighton in explaining the mission and vision of the foundation. I hope that the residents will continue to support the hospital and its commitment to the community.”
