Rutland Regional Medical Center Annual Fund

Contributions to the Annual Fund help to support the greatest areas of need at Rutland Regional and for our community.


Fall Appeal

In 2016, the Fall Appeal focuses on the treatment of cardiac arrest, with the purchase of 25 new defibrillators. This Appeal is a solicitation of friends and supporters of Rutland Regional. We are fortunate to receive a wide variety of giving through your generosity.

More than 500,000 deaths of children and adults in the United States each year are due to cardiac arrest. A defibrillator can stop sudden cardiac arrest. A defibrillator is used to treat cardiac arrest by delivering an electric shock through the chest to the heart. If not treated within minutes, a cardiac arrest can quickly lead to death.

As healthcare technologies continue to advance, Rutland Regional is committed to providing these advancements to you, your loved ones, friends and neighbors – folks who depend on Rutland Regional for the very best care. As part of this commitment, Rutland Regional will purchase 25 new defibrillators. As a not-for-profit hospital, we rely on your support to assist with this initiative.


Board of Directors Appeal

Rutland Regional is fortunate to have an active and supportive volunteer Board of Directors, made up of community leaders and volunteers focused on helping Rutland Regional provide the very best care to our patients and to establish meaningful partnerships in our community. Because of the scope of the defibrillator initiative, the Rutland Regional Board of Directors will focus efforts and resources in that area as well.
