Hospital

Wyandot Memorial Hospital and its Home Health and Hospice department recently received generous gifts from the Lucinda E. Swartz Living Trust.

Swartz passed away in 2020 and her wishes were for the monies from the trust to be applied for purposes of good and the advancement of institutional goals.

Wyandot Memorial received a contribution of $53,086.93 and the hospital board designated the amount as a restricted gift prohibited from use for operational expenditures. Home Health and Hospice was awarded $106,173.86, which has been placed in a WMH fund restricted for Home Health and Hospice services.

“We are truly grateful for Lucinda Swartz’s donations,” noted Fred Feichter, chairman of the WMH board of governors. “We will honor her wishes by restricting the monies to be used exactly as she intended.”

Feichter explained the hospital established a restricted fund for Home Health and Hospice when it acquired Health Services of Wyandot County last fall. The hospital also has funds designated for capital improvements, Critical/Coronary Care, Oncology and Women’s Health.

“We know Lucinda Swartz was a thoughtful, intentional donor with great attention to detail, so we will carefully and respectfully administer her gifts with that same regard,” Feichter added. “It is our greatest privilege to care for patients and we deeply appreciate Ms. Swartz’s support of our mission.”
