Providing focused healthcare resources where they are most needed, before issues become emergencies. Your gift to Backus is a gift to the entire community. Thank you!

Backus Hospital’s Primary Stroke Center is the reason why my wife, Erin is still here with me today. Her recovery has been absolutely amazing and I credit Backus staff for the comprehensive, compassionate care they provided immediately after her stroke and through her recovery.
