Hamot Health Foundation

About Us

As a central institution of our region's health care, UPMC Hamot is making investments and decisions for the future of medicine in our area. As the hospital's partner in service, Hamot Health Foundation provides you with opportunities to impact that future and make a difference in the lives of those who need it most — right here in the Erie region.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our mission is to support UPMC Hamot in serving our patients, our communities, and one another in the tradition of quality, health, healing, and education.

We invest locally in the resources and people that continually make the world-class care of UPMC Hamot a reality in our area. Every dollar donated stays here with funds being allocated based on careful planning to help meet the hospital's clinical goals for the highest level of care possible, for as many people as possible.
