Our

Mission

Your Support Impacts Your Community! Become part of a giving tradition that is over 125 years old. The Friends of Reading Hospital are passionate about improving the quality of healthcare in Berks County. The Friends contribute their time and talents to manage community fundraising events.

Through community fundraising events such as the Reading Hospital Road Run, The Friends of Reading Hospital support projects such as the Patient Assistance Fund McGlinn Cancer Institute and for the Center for Public Health, and this year’s special program, HeartSAFE Berks County. Your sponsorship can help provide automated external defibrillator (AED) devices to locations throughout the community, improving the survivability of sudden cardiac arrest victims living and working in the county. Fundraising initiatives sponsored by The Friends have also provided NICView webcams for the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, support for McGlinn Cancer Institute and supplies for patient comfort items.
