Help Support UH Portage Medical Center through the Portage Medical Center Foundation

For more than 100 years, the residents of Portage County and surrounding communities have trusted University Hospitals Portage Medical Center (formerly Robinson Memorial Hospital) with their health. Dedicated physicians, nurses and staff have compassionately served the diverse medical needs of patients, from birth through end-of-life. As a result, the hospital is known for both superior quality care and personalized patient experiences.

University Hospitals' growth in recent years reflects the health system's strong Northeast Ohio focus and commitment to meeting the needs of communities in expanding regions. UH is optimizing community health across Northeast Ohio with a cohesive system of accessible, neighborhood-based care. Integration with Portage County’s only hospital expands UH's reach while offering new and innovative services close to home for local families.

You can join more than 1,000 individuals, businesses and foundations from Northeast Ohio who annually make a commitment to the health of our community through a tax-deductible gift to the Portage Medical Center Foundation. Your gift can also serve as a tribute or memorial to a family member or friend.
