Powell County Medical Foundation, founded in 1986, is a nonprofit charitable
organization. It exists for the purpose of assuring the long-term viability
of high quality medical care for the residents of Powell County.
Powell County Medical Foundation’s Board of Directors work throughout
the year to host fundraisers and obtain grant funding to financially support
health related organizations and programs throughout our community.
Powell County Medical Foundation’s volunteer Board of Directors includes
community members, Deer Lodge Medical Center’s hospital administrator,
and a physician.
Caring for the Community
Caring for the residents of Powell County by insuring that their present
and future health care needs are met is the goal of the Powell County
In the past few months, Powell County Medical Foundation has helped to
fund the ImPact Concussion Testing program for junior high and high school
athletes in Deer Lodge and a bike helmet safety program, as well as purchase
several pieces of equipment for Deer Lodge Medical Center.
The ImPact Concussion Testing program is a test that is used to determine
the degree of impairment suffered due to a concussion. It also gives healthcare
providers another tool to help determine when it is safe for an athlete
to return to a sport after a concussion. With support from the foundation
and DLMC, all junior high and high school students are provided the tests
free of charge.
Powell County Medical Foundation also recently purchased a cardiac monitor
and crash cart for the CardioPulmonary Rehab Department, a trauma gurney,
and a new CPAP/BiPAP Machine. These equipment purchases help to ensure
our community members are able to receive the highest quality care here
at home at Deer Lodge Medical Center rather than having to travel many
miles to hospitals in neighboring towns.
Over the past year alone, the Foundation has responded to the health care
needs of our community by purchasing over $58,000.00 worth of new equipment
and programs for DLMC.
