CHILLICOTHE — Adena Health System was created 125 years ago out of a health care crisis, and that spirit of caring for our communities continues to this day as we face the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Adena Health Foundation has created several ways for business partners and community members to support the efforts of Adena providers and caregivers as they take on the Coronavirus, while continuing to meet the day-to-day healthcare needs of our communities. You can help through:

Financial Support

The Adena Health Foundation has established a COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund which will be used to provide emergency assistance in support all Adena Health System facilities and the physicians, APPs and caregivers delivering care to those in need during this pandemic.
