Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation was formed in Juneau, Alaska, in 1992 and incorporated in 1994 under IRS code 501(c)(3). The Foundation is a non-profit fundraising organization dedicated to providing financial support to Bartlett Regional Hospital. Bartlett Regional Hospital is city-owned and has limited funding options. Bartlett Foundation's goal is to close the funding gap for needed medical technology, resources, and programs, to keep Southeast Alaska on the cutting edge of patient care.
The Foundation has funded various projects and programs throughout the years. Each year the Foundation allocates scholarships for health science studies through the Grace and Phil Edelman Endowment. Enabling Southeast Alaskan students to have a better chance to succeed and support the community from where they came. The Foundation also allocates a yearly Behavioral Wellness scholarship, focusing on enhancing access to behavioral healthcare throughout the community. Through the behavioral wellness scholarship our goal is to increase the number of behavioral health practitioners with advanced certifications.
