Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation

Alison Gilbertson, Foundation Director

The healthcare environment continues to change with dynamic uncertainty. The Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation exists to raise funds with which to support and advance healthcare services through Prairie Lakes Healthcare System, in an effort to meet challenges created by this uncerainity.

I welcome conversations with Prairie Lakes’ patients, patients’ families, volunteers, employees and physicians to learn how Prairie Lakes has made a positive impact on your life. It is my hope that these stories will cultivate philanthropic success, benefiting Prairie Lakes, its patients and the community.

It is my desire to create genuine friendships in the spirit of giving and work toward the mission of your good health.
