How You Can Help

Your Gifts at Work at Premier Health

When you offer your time and your dollars to us, you can see how you’re making a difference throughout Southwest Ohio. You’re contributing to programs that educate about healthy choices, that improve the health of under-served people in our communities and that make our communities safer and better places to live.

You help heal the bodies and spirits of the patients we serve. You build our hospitals and other facilities and make excellent health care possible for the millions of people who live in Southwest Ohio.

Your gifts are working hard at Premier Health, and we strive every day to live up to the spirit of your generosity.

Why Give to Premier Health?

By giving to Premier Health, you contribute directly to the health of your community. Whether you give your money or your time, whether your gift supports one of our hospitals or one of our community programs, you make a difference in the lives of so many people. We’re continually developing new ways to serve, and you make our service possible.

We believe deeply that every contribution is vital to fulfilling our mission. The volunteers who offer a compassionate presence for challenged patients and their families make an immediate difference in the lives of those they touch. The dollars that go to support our programs for the homeless make this vital work possible. The funding that helps build a new facility or bring the latest technology to our community raises the level of care we can offer to community members who come to us for healing.

Your gifts inspire us to give our best every day. A gift to Premier Health multiplies your generosity many times over.

Donor-Funded Programs

Named facilities and programs show our gratitude to some of our exceptionally generous donors. The entire community benefits from gifts that go to create such programs as:

  • The Wilbur & Mary Jean Cohen Women’s Center
  • The Miriam G. Knoll Heart Failure Center
  • The Mary K. Gates Endovascular Suite

Other programs and facilities are also made possible in large part by generous donations:

  • A diabetes wellness center
  • Atrium Maternal Health Clinic
  • Our Level III Trauma Center
  • The Cancer Center at Atrium Medical Center

Donors make so much of our care and our community support possible. We show our gratitude in every way we can, but we must also reward their generosity by giving our own gifts right back to the community.

Giving Back to the Community

Donations that support our member organizations inspire us to spread that generous spirit out into the community. Here are some examples of programs your generosity makes possible:

  • ElderCare
  • Minority Nursing Fellowship
  • Samaritan Homeless Clinic
  • Teen pregnancy programs

Because you give to us, we can give to the community. Your gift to Premier Health is vital to building the health of the communities around us.


Our annual scholarship program is an excellent example of how we build the health of our community by bringing up the next generation of health care workers. Since 2001, this program has provided nearly $450,000 in scholarship aid to future physicians, nurses, pharmacists and therapists.

This support for education is especially critical because of the national and regional nursing shortage. This vital program helps our community by developing skilled men and women who are eager to give of themselves to help the community, one person at a time.

What Your Dollars Can Provide

Every dollar you give makes a difference in the lives of our community members. Here are some examples from the Samaritan Homeless Clinic that show how your gift goes to help those in need:

  • $15 buys a bag of bus tokens to be used for appointments
  • $60 pays the average prescription costs per visit
  • $65 provides a diabetic eye exam
  • $320 provides the annual dental care for one patient
  • $391 provides annual medical care for one patient
  • $750 provides complete annual care for one patient

You’re also helping to heal the spirits of people in our community: $175 to Camp Samaritan sends a cancer survivor and a loved one to a healing retreat.

When you give to Premier Health, you can be sure your dollars are put to good use improving the health of our community.
