Latrobe Area Hospital Charitable Foundation

Welcome to the Latrobe Area Hospital Charitable Foundation

For more than 25 years the Latrobe Area Hospital Charitable Foundation has supported the essential life-saving work at Latrobe Hospital. As part of its ongoing commitment to the communities that Latrobe Hospital serves, the Charitable Foundation provides important and impactful financial support by funding new and vital medical equipment, much needed hospital renovations, as well as up-to-date professional and patient education.

A shining example of the Latrobe Area Hospital Charitable Foundation’s commitment to serving the health care needs of the community is its investment of $500,000 to help purchase the newest model of the da Vinci Xi robot for Latrobe Hospital. This remarkable cutting-edge technology allows our surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures with incredible precision and accelerated recovery and comfort for the patient.
