NMC is a proud supporter of the many communities we serve. We are committed to working alongside area organizations to improve health by providing healthy opportunities and responding to the needs of those we serve. One way NMC supports our community is through project/event sponsorships and charitable contributions. Sponsorship requests must be submitted online and are reviewed on a quarterly basis by the hospital’s Funding Committee.
Charitable contribution considerations are specific to the counties served by Newton Medical Center. These Kansas counties include Harvey, Marion, McPherson, Reno, Sedgwick and Butler, with preference given to Harvey County and those defined in NMC’s primary market zip codes.
Funds requested must meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Align with NMC’s mission, vision and values.
- Address priority needs as outlined in the Community Health Needs Assessment.
- Support local communities economically and socially.
