Thompson Health Guild

For more than 100 years, the Thompson Health Guild, a not-for-profit fundraising organization, has served Thompson Health and its surrounding communities.

In 1905, the F.F. Thompson Hospital Board of Directors established the Guild for the purpose of raising funds to purchase needed medical equipment and furnishings for the Hospital and Nursing Home. Today, the Guild has nearly 150 members and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Through several generations, dedicated members of our community have given of their time, talent, creativity and hard work to raise funds for Thompson Health.
