The Richland Hospital Partners are dedicated to rendering services to The Richland Hospital, Inc. in their mission of caring, educating, and healing.

Our History

Formed over 40 years ago, Partners have a long and distinguished history of service to Richland Hospital. The founding members’ main task was giving tickets to visitors so they could visit a friend or family member.

Known then as the Richland Hospital Auxillary, they filled a vital role in the operation of the hospital. Today, the Partners extend their helping hands to many great projects.
