favorite KSB Hospital Foundation

The KSB Hospital was founded through a philanthropic gift in 1897. Over 125 years later, KSB established the KSB Hospital Foundation to further that philanthropic tradition. The Foundation raises funds to support KSB’s mission to restore, maintain and enhance health by providing superior care now and in the future. Through the Foundation, our donors invest in our hospital, clinics, and ultimately the health and wellness of our community.
