QHR Cares Foundation is committed to improving health outcomes in communities by partnering with organizations that positively impact environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, and age.
QHR Cares Foundation is a national nonprofit committed to improving health outcomes in rural America by partnering with organizations committed to working on issues that positively impact environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, and age.
QHR Cares is the charitable arm of QHR Health. Since 1977, QHR Health has provided independent hospitals with the support and guidance needed to remain strong and viable. With a strong sense of purpose and commitment to service excellence, QHR Health helps rural healthcare providers fulfill their missions.
Because the care that people receive in the healthcare environment is only one factor in healthy communities, QHR Cares was formed to make a collective impact in funding work to support social determinants of health.
By partnering with organizations that already have effective programs in place, QHR Cares is able to help expand initiatives through grant funds.
The Foundation also addresses the shortage of trained healthcare workers in rural communities by offering scholarships to students pursuing careers in the health sciences.
