About Us

The EKM Health Foundation is a charitable organization that funds health-related projects within Eastern Kings County.


The Foundation evolved from the closure in 1994 of the former Eastern Kings Memorial Hospital. Donations previously made to the former hospital were transferred to the Foundation with the intent that the income from these monies supports health-related projects in Eastern Kings County.
