What We Do

Scholarships

Our mission greatly relies on the tireless work of talented, dedicated healthcare professionals. As we look to the future, we count on the next generation of physicians, nurses, and medical technicians to carry the torch.

To help meet this critical need, our scholarship program provides financial support for students pursuing healthcare careers. Our program empowers students to take the next step toward their desired professions to ensure the future of good health throughout their communities.

Natural Disaster Relief Funds for Sullivan County Hospital

After a devastating tornado struck Sullivan County, The OvationCares Foundation was eager to provide critical financial assistance. Among the impacted were five employees of Sullivan County Community Hospital, our partner hospital, who tragically lost their homes and possessions in the disaster. Understanding the immediate challenges they faced, such as securing clothing, food, and shelter, we ensured that funds were promptly allocated to address these pressing needs. The widespread devastation in the area called for the demolition of almost all structures, exacerbating the already dire situation. The affected employees were overwhelmed by the tremendous outpouring of support from OvationCares which we were overjoyed to be able to provide.
