Oconee Memorial Hospital Foundation develops philanthropic resources to support and enhance patient care in Oconee County and the Greater Clemson area through services led by Prisma Health.
Partnering with our community since 2001, Oconee Memorial Hospital Foundation has raised more than $23 million to provide the very best health care for you, your family and your friends.
Oconee Memorial Hospital turned 80 this year and we are growing! The New Center for Emergency Medicine will add 20 additional private rooms, bereavement areas, a new EMS bay, a fast track area, a special area for sexual assault victims and more. This 13,000 square foot addition allows us to meet the growing needs of our community and provide the right care at the right time when our friends, family and neighbors need it most. Hoping to break ground this year! Join OMH Foundation as we show our community support for this project.
Because minutes matter. Miracles matter.
Contributing to the health of our community is a sensible investment now and a sound investment for the future well-being of our community.
William Doyle, MD and wife Lila, a nurse, shared a passion for community health. When approached to help build a local hospital in Oconee County, they graciously donated 15 acres of farmland they owned in Seneca.
A group of community leaders then set about to raise the funds needed to build the hospital. Fueled by a great deal of hard work and community spirit, Oconee County Hospital opened on January 31, 1939, at the site where Lila Doyle Rehab and Nursing Care Facility sits today. Oconee County Hospital is now Oconee Memorial Hospital, a part of Prisma Health.
Through their initial gift of land and the large estate gift bequeathed upon their deaths, the Doyle’s truly are the parents of community health in our area.
Oconee Memorial Hospital Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization (tax id# 56-2141740) that accepts, cash, checks and credit card payments. There are a variety of ways to give that are rewarding to you as a donor:
