Meet Your Foundation

Thank you for taking the time to meet Your Foundation.

Multi-Colored Underline

The Legacy Foundation is committed to the well-being of the community. We are a private foundation that was created in April, 2010, following the sale of the assets of Ottumwa Regional Health Center to Regional Care Hospital Partners. To ensure that the net proceeds from this transaction would benefit those living in the community previously served by the health center’s facility; a nonprofit charitable foundation was formed. Current assets for the Foundation total over $70 million.
