Philanthropy has played a key role in the history of AdventHealth. The impact can be seen each day, such as the Shull Institute for Surgical Robotics, Critical Care Services Expansion, AdventHealth Birth Center at Shawnee Mission, Zamierowski Simulation Center, and current construction of the B.E. Smith Family Center. The AdventHealth Foundation is committed to enhancing both the high-tech and high-touch care for which AdventHealth is known.



The Foundation Board of Directors work closely with Foundation staff and AdventHealth leadership to select and create opportunities for philanthropic giving. This includes facilities that provide direct care to members of our community and programs that have a life-changing, positive impact on health.

Goodness is the only investment that never fails.
— Henry David Thoreau
