The Society of 1885
As has been the case since 1885, consistent giving ensures success despite unpredictable obstacles, and greatly aids in guaranteeing the sustainability of our endeavors. Mission Health created the Society of 1885 to honor the legacy of our founders, who had the foresight and perseverance to devote astounding energy and passion to the vision of Mission Hospital, now a regional and national healthcare leader. The Society of 1885 helps fill unforeseen funding gaps, such as assisting patients without insurance or replacing critical medical equipment, and ensures adaptability and sustainability across the Mission Health system. Preserving our legacy of compassionate care far into the future for those in western North Carolina requires the same persistent dedication and generosity as our founding pioneers.
