What is the Canton-Potsdam Hospital Foundation?

The Canton-Potsdam Hospital Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing philanthropic support for Canton-Potsdam Hospital.


In 1920, Henry Foster and Gilbert French made estate gifts that established a hospital in Potsdam, NY, and in the 1970’s the Potsdam Hospital merged with the E.J. Noble Hospital in Canton to form Canton-Potsdam Hospital.

Generous gifts from Mr. Foster and Mr. French built the foundation for excellent healthcare in our community, and this commitment has helped to advance our mission to provide skilled, compassionate, cost-effective care that promotes wellness and meets community needs.

Since 1985, the Canton-Potsdam Hospital Foundation has relied on gifts from individuals, corporations, foundations and friends to provide the means to achieve its mission to support the strategic priorities of Canton-Potsdam Hospital. This commitment has helped our Hospital invest in new technology and life-saving medical equipment, launch innovative programs to improve the health status of our patients and community, and move forward with new and updated facilities to help accommodate continued expansion and progress. 

Whether you volunteer, give to the Annual Fund, support a major initiative or plan an estate gift, your charitable support helps to ensure high-quality healthcare is available in our community.

There are several ways to support CPH and we encourage you to review the opportunities and contact the Foundation Office at (315) 261-5410 with any questions. However you choose to give, your gift will benefit many you may not know, but whose lives will be better because you cared.
