Foundation-About us

Labette Health is committed to providing high-quality, caring and cost-effective services. Nothing is more important to a family than having healthcare services available to them when needed most. The ability to care for a loved one in an emergency situation, and the opportunity to receive diagnostic testing or care close to home and family, is a theme we hear often throughout the region.

Labette Health (with the exception of Emergency Medical Services-EMS) operates without any tax support or direct financial subsidy from Labette County—totally funded by reimbursement from patients, insurance companies and donations.

As a not-for-profit hospital, philanthropic support is vital to maintaining the quality facilities, programs and services that make Labette Health a regional healthcare treasure in southeast Kansas.

Many individuals, businesses and foundations choose to support the important work of healing through the Labette Health Foundation. Their donations in action help create and enhance the healing environment at Labette Health. They realized quality health care is an essential part of a quality life. They believe their community deserves exceptional health care and so do we.
