Frequently Asked Questions
Why Does SGMC need donations from the community?
SGMC is the leader of health and wellness in our community. Because patient revenues alone cannot fund the growth necessary to serve our community gifts to the SGMC Foundation allow the Medical Center to obtain state-of-the-art, life-saving equipment, to improve and expand its facilities, and to increase the quality of vital care-giving services. That is why your support is so important!
