Mark Twain Medical Center Foundation

The Foundation is a non-profit fundraising organization created by a caring community to help support its local hospital. In 1982, a concerned and dedicated Calaveras County community recognized the need and started organizing the first Hospital Foundation. In 1984, it became a reality and within two years, the Foundation raised $92,000 to purchase and install the first mammography equipment in Calaveras County. Since then, the Foundation has been instrumental in acquiring various equipment, updating patient care rooms, and donating $1 million dollars to the MTMC Building Fund. Learn more …
