Backus 125th Anniversary Healthy Community Campaign

Backus is 125 years young…and we’ve just begun. We’ve celebrated our past. Now help us build a healthier tomorrow.

This past year, we marked a milestone of caring for our community by focusing on what really matters: Care for you and those you love.

That’s why Backus Hospital has made significant investments in:

  • More specialists to provide world-class heart treatments, compassionate cancer care, more services in urology and neuroscience
  • More access, higher technology, more convenient locations and expertise
  • More of what matters to all of us.

As we look to the future, we know community needs are changing. Healthcare is evolving. And we have a huge role to play in ensuring our community’s good health.


Better Outcomes

  • Focus on prevention
  • Expanded health screenings
  • Health education and outreach

Access to Excellence

  • New outpatient facilities
  • Additional primary and specialty care providers

A Healing Environment

  • Modern, welcoming rooms and guest areas
  • Enhanced patient and visitor experiences

How do we know our  Healthy Community initiative will make a difference?

Because it already is!

An extensive pilot project through Backus Hospital’s Preventive Medicine Team showed remarkable results: Patients involved required 70% fewer hospital admissions in the first year alone.

All annual fund donors of $250 or more will be recognized with gratitude at the 2019 Backus Bennies event in March.

All gifts to Backus stay local and help to improve our community’s health.

Your gift now to the Backus Healthy Community Campaign will help us achieve these results — benefiting our entire region… helping all of us to be healthier.
