Reading Hospital was built on the generosity of others.

You Can Make a Difference

Reading Hospital was founded over 150 years ago by a group of concerned physicians and community members who recognized that a growing Berks County needed a hospital to address the health challenges facing the community. These supporters understood that beyond providing comfort and care, Reading Hospital would also be a foundation of the area’s overall growth and development. 

Transforming Healthcare

Today, Reading Hospital’s dependence on philanthropic support is still as important as ever. Gifts made in support of Reading Hospital will help transform healthcare for our patients and community.  As a nonprofit healthcare organization, every gift to Reading Hospital Foundation allows us to promote health advance discovery, train caregivers and transform patient care for the future, providing additional support of our existing high-quality programs and services.

All gifts to Reading Hospital Foundation stay right here at Reading Hospital and benefit our patients, caregivers, family, friends and community members. Each gift enhances the quality of care we provide and overall well-being of our community.
