What We Do
The Bolivar Medical Center Foundation was formed in 2000 by Bolivar County to manage funds realized from the lease of the formerly county run hospital. The Foundation's Mission is to improve the quality of health care provided to the citizens of Bolivar County and to provide instruction to the public on the improvement of personal health, hygiene and safety.
The Foundation is made up of appointees from the Bolivar County Supervisors, Bolivar Medical Center, Delta State University, Chamber of Commerce and the Board at large.
To fulfill this mission, the Foundation disburses funds to worthy organizations which present projects and programs of work which are relevant to the Foundation’s healthcare driven focus. For more information on the Grant application process please see the "Grants" section of the website.
Past grant recipients have included Bolivar County School Districts and a local Boy Scouts of America troop for the purchase of defibrillators, the Cleveland Lion's Club for vision screening equipment that will be used to assist Bolivar County students, Delta Health Center to assist in providing care to the needy, nursing scholarships through Delta State University, Coahoma Community College and Mississippi Delta Community College and general support for the Nursing School at Delta State University.
