Larry Hocking Joins WGH Foundation Board

Wabash General Hospital Board of Directors, Foundation Board, and Administration would like to welcome Larry Hocking as the newest member of the Foundation Board. Mr. Hocking, his wife, Carolyn, and two sons have been farming in Wabash County for 48 years.

The Wabash General Hospital Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, whose sole purpose is to support Wabash General Hospital. This past year, the Foundation approved the purchase of a new telephone system and waiting room furniture for the hospital and the outlying offices. The Foundation also approved the purchase of gas cards for chronic care patients. The WGH Foundation raises funds through donations and bequests. The WGH Foundation is a 501(c)3 corporation, so your gifts are tax deductible. If you would like to support Wabash General Hospital’s Foundation, please contact Jay Purvis at 618-263-6302.
