Programs & Funds
The Foundation was created to raise philanthropic and community support for North Country HealthCare. North Country HealthCare provides affordable and accessible healthcare to all regardless of their ability to pay. Together we can make a difference in the lives of our patients and build a healthier future for our communities.
Proceeds from the John H. Caskey Endowment are used to support the uninsured and underinsured in our community who need healthcare. Ways that this fund may assist patients include medication assistance, medical equipment, living condition modifications, transportation, medical items not covered by insurance, basic needs and other financial assistance as needed.
This program provides free colorectal cancer screening and diagnostics to uninsured individuals at clinics throughout our system. Money generated helps fund Fecal Immunochemical Tests (FIT) and colonoscopies for patients that would not otherwise get screened.
Funds go to support the dental health and oral education of the uninsured and underinsured living in our communities. Each year the hygiene team goes into the schools of Ash Fork, Holbrook, Seligman and Flagstaff to screen and teach young children the importance of proper oral hygiene. Some of the funds raised may go to support these types of projects.
