Navicent Health Foundation

Drawing of the old Foundation hospital

In 1895, a group of community-minded citizens raised funds to create the Macon Hospital, now Navicent Health. Much has changed at Medical Center, Navicent Health, but the generosity of its supporters remains a steadfast tradition in our community.

Founded in 1973, the Navicent Health Foundation has provided support to Navicent Health. Navicent Health Foundation encourages private donations and community support to fund capital needs and medical education and research.
