Our Employees Are Committed to the Communities We Serve

FHN employees have contributed more than $1 million to the FHN Foundation since 1999 through the award-winning Partners in Giving Program. Partners in Giving is an FHN employee fund-raising organization that creates opportunities for employees to contribute to FHN in various ways – through payroll deductions, donations, or through participation in fundraisers.

This program has been an outstanding success for our employees to collaborate with our community to raise funds for healthcare services.
