Operation Scrubs with Love to Houston
We received a call recently from a community member whose daughter lives in the Houston area. As you know, there is major flooding there, and she found out that nurses and other medical professionals are in desperate need of scrubs, as theirs have been contaminated.
The word went out to our employees asking for donations and, oh my goodness, did they respond! We have over 150 scrubs that will be shipped off to the Houston area. This project is another shining example of the giving hearts we have here at MCH! It’s been an amazing outpouring of support!

Holiday Food Drive
The 5th Annual Holiday Food drive was a very big success – thanks to all of you who have helped out so much over the past 4 years. We started a month earlier because Town Pump/Lucky Lil’s again offered the dollar-for-dollar match (up to $5,000) for October and November. Last year, Mineral Community Hospital donated 4,917 pounds of food and raised over $650 in cash! This year, 8,652 pounds of food was donated! Just like all of the food we donate, it all stays in Mineral County, and is delivered to either the Alberton Food Pantry or Mineral County Food Bank for distribution. Many of you purchased bulk food, which is a great donation, too!
A very big “Thank You” goes out to our food drive partners: Castle’s Market, Wells Fargo Bank, Lakeland Feed & Supply in Alberton, the Jack Lincoln Memorial Clinic in St Regis, Town Pump/Lucky Lil’s Casino, the St Regis Senior Citizens’ Center, and Partnership Health Center – Mineral County!
Community Health Assessment
The Community Health Improvement Plan was done in conjunction with the Mineral County Health Department. This data was gathered by a group of volunteers going door-to-door to ask a series of questions to find out the concerns are of Mineral County residents. The Mineral County Health Department and Mineral Community Hospital are working together to implement a plan of action to address these health concerns.
