Promoting health initiatives since 2008.
The Foundation is governed by an independent board composed of citizens living in Suffolk and in surrounding communities in the previous service area of the Louise Obici Memorial Hospital.
It is the Foundation’s goal to continue on the philanthropic journey started by Amedeo Obici when he built a hospital to honor his wife’s memory and to serve the healthcare needs of the surrounding community.
The Foundation’s mission today reflects this same desire as we strive to address the unmet needs of the medically indigent and uninsured and to support programs which prevent illness and disease.
The mission of the Obici Healthcare Foundation is to improve the health status of the people living in the service area by responding to the medical needs of the indigent and uninsured and by supporting programs which have the primary purpose of preventing illness and disease.
This is in keeping with Amedeo Obici’s concern for local citizens, which was best illustrated by his decision to build a hospital as a lasting memorial to his wife, Louise, after her death in 1938.
The vision of the Obici Healthcare Foundation is good health and wellness for all.
