Western Reserve Health Foundation

About the Western Reserve Health Foundation

In 2012, the CFMV was thrilled to welcome a new supporting organization to the CFMV Family, the Western Reserve Health Foundation. This foundation was established to continue supporting the healthcare education and needs of Mahoning County residents.

History

The Western Reserve Health Foundation was established in the 1980s as the fundraising arm of the Western Reserve Care System. In 2009, the care system’s successor, Forum Health, filed for bankruptcy protection, a move that affected the system’s hospitals and the foundation. After more than two years of bankruptcy court proceedings, the foundation was reshaped with a broader mission to support healthcare needs across Mahoning County.

WRHF funds that had been tied up in court proceedings were released in 2012 to serve this larger purpose, and the foundation became a supporting organization of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley. The foundation continues to operate with a board of directors comprised of local community leaders.

“The Western Reserve Health Foundation is grateful to have the support and guidance of the Community Foundation throughout this process,” said Phil Dennison, WRHF chairman. “The superior service the foundation provides us as a supporting organization allows us to focus on meeting the healthcare needs of Mahoning County residents.”
