Formed in the early 1980s, the East Adams County Healthcare Foundation supports the East Adams Rural Healthcare in the communities of Ritzville and Washtucna. Each year the Hospital Foundation has sponsored a benefit for the purpose of raising funds specific to the needs of the community. In the past the Hospital Foundation has raised money for upgrading ambulances, a laptop computer for the EMT Staff, equipment for the Physical Therapy and many more items, making each visit to our hospital and clinic a smooth experience.
