Foundation Board Members

Dawson Medical Foundation was formed in 2006, with the health interests of Dawson County citizens and surrounding communities in mind. It is made up of a seven member volunteer board and served by an Executive Director.  The Foundation supports funding efforts to maintain, grow and improve healthcare within our five-county service area.

We receive donations from local businesses and from individuals.  Some come in the form of memorials and others as donations to Myranda’s Closet, a Foundation supported effort to stock toys, games, and stuffed animals for our youngest patients.  Many recent donations have been accompanied by specific requests to build a new EMS facility.  Along with these programs, the Foundation has funded hospital equipment for Medical Arts Hospital.  Working with Dawson County Hospital District, we seek to provide better healthcare availability whether it be a new or expanded service or to improve present healthcare services.

Currently, Dawson Medical Foundation is actively pursuing funds to build a new Emergency Medical Services (EMS) station in Lamesa.  The planned construction will be built adjacent to the hospital and will provide adequate living quarters for four to six crew members.  If you are interested in donating to the Foundation in any capacity, please call Jo Beth Smith at 806-872-5727 ext. 2011
