Mobile Infirmary Foundation

In 1983, the Board of Directors of the Infirmary Health System created a foundation whose purpose was to support and provide needed financial resources to the Mobile Infirmary. Over the years, the Foundation’s leadership has been comprised of committed volunteers from the medical and business community who understand the importance of building a strong healthcare system in our region. The Infirmary Foundation serves the needs of the Infirmary Health System through its philanthropic efforts promoting a healthy community and fulfilling our mission, LIFE.

Infirmary Foundation has grown and has assets exceeding $40 million dollars. With the support of our donors in the community and our good stewardship of their contributions, the Infirmary Foundation has been able to distribute over $30,000,000 back to Mobile Infirmary, Infirmary Health and the many community-based initiatives we support that improve the health of the residents along the Gulf Coast.
