Home 5 Funding Priorities
The Aberdeen Health Foundation’s funding streams combine to enhance the health of our community and quality health care close to home. As we strive to respond to current needs, we also focus on programs that will positively impact the health of future generations. Our priorities include investing in the health system, population health, and continuing education. In addition to the funding priorities below, the Frank & Irene Sobey Fund gives us the flexibility to respond to emerging needs in any area of health, either within or beyond the walls of the hospital.
