LifePoint Health donates $100K to hurricane relief

November 9, 2018

LifePoint Health, part of the parent company of Conemaugh Meyersdale and Conemaugh Memorial medical centers, has contributed $100,000 toward recovery and relief efforts following hurricanes Florence and Michael.

To aid in recovery efforts following Hurricane Florence’s devastating path through the Carolinas, LifePoint donated $25,000 to Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization that mobilized multiple teams to assist homeowners with flood cleanup, and $25,000 to Feeding the Carolinas, a network of food banks in North and South Carolina that has been working to get food and supplies to affected areas.

LifePoint also contributed $50,000 to Americares to aid in relief efforts following Michael’s catastrophic landfall and impact on the Florida Panhandle and the southeastern U.S.

In 2014, Duke LifePoint Healthcare, a for-profit organization, purchased the Conemaugh Health System for roughly $111 million. Duke LifePoint Healthcare is a joint venture of Duke University Health System and LifePoint Health.
