Who We Are

Doctor giving a patient a high five

As the region’s guardian of health, Beacon Health System is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of people across our region.

Beacon Health Foundation works with generous members of our community to provide support to Beacon Health System as it grows and works to evolve with healthcare trends and provide the highest quality of care to all. From the Elkhart General Hospital Surgery expansion, to the new home for Beacon Children’s Hospital, the generous donations of our benefactors help create an environment of quality care for all patients.

Your support of Beacon can help save the life of a critically ill newborn baby. It can make the road to recovery smoother for a teenager involved in a car accident. It can give hope to a young mother diagnosed with breast cancer. It can enhance quality of life for a senior living with diabetes. And it can even inspire a heroic cancer survivor as he reaches new heights to win Paralympic gold.

Every gift — in any amount — matters.
