Welcome to The Kirby Foundation

The Kirby Foundation plays an important role in sustaining Kirby Medical Center’s excellence while shaping Kirby Medical Center’s future accomplishments. Private support is essential as we continue the tradition of caring in Piatt County. Through generous charitable gifts, the Foundation supports Kirby’s mission by building community relationships and securing the needed funds for enhanced services and programs.

This past year, The Foundation is proud to have provided the following as a result of the generous support of our community members.

  • A second ultrasound machine which advances our ability to conduct vascular and cardiology services. Our Imaging Department now conducts echocardiograms, Doppler exams, and arterial studies.
  • Obtained surgical equipment that allows our orthopedic surgeons opportunities to perform new procedures never done previously at Kirby Medical Center.
  • Offered educational training opportunities for our staff providing them with an opportunity to expand their skill set.

Philanthropy is an important part of Kirby Medical Center’s past, present, and future. John and Mary Kirby and their daughter, Nell England, understood the importance of philanthropy to ensure quality and affordable healthcare in our community. We are fortunate to be a part of the Kirby “family” and believe their generous gift continues to inspire loyal supporters to continue that same spirit of giving.
