Healthcare Excellence for our Communities

Our Mission

FHN, together with those we serve, improves health and provides superior, quality healthcare services. Respect, dignity and compassion guide our interactions, while leadership and wise stewardship of resources direct the process.

Community Support

Our commitment to the community is seen throughout the year in many ways...

As a sponsor of more than 60 community events, we contribute thousands of dollars in cash and in-kind donations annually. Each year, our employees add their personal contributions (averaging more than $40,000 to the United Way), as well as serving in leadership positions in many community organizations and boards.

Our Employees Are Committed to the Communities We Serve

FHN employees have contributed more than $1 million to the FHN Foundation since 1999 through the award-winning Partners in Giving Program. Partners in Giving is an FHN employee fund-raising organization that creates opportunities for employees to contribute to FHN in various ways – through payroll deductions, donations, or through participation in fund-raisers.

This program has been an outstanding success for our employees to collaborate with our community to raise funds for healthcare services.
