  • Nature's Healing Spaces

    Buffalo Hospital site plan for Natures Healing SpacesBuffalo Hospital Foundation is bringing healing beyond hospital walls by establishing a healing landscape that will fulfill the psychological, physical and spiritual needs of patients, staff and the community. 

    The outdoor space will include walking paths that lead you around native prairie, fountains with landscaped alcoves and benches to relax or enjoy lunch. This unique place of refuge offers tranquility and the opportunity to connect to nature. The outdoor space will also feature a railed walkway allowing patients to complete their physical therapy outside.

    Buffalo Hospital’s healing landscape will provide a restorative sanctuary for patients, a quiet refuge for staff and a tranquil destination for the entire community to enjoy. You can be a part of creating outdoor amenities, such as pergolas, gardens and walking paths. Naming opportunities provide you with an opportunity to be recognized for your generosity for all the years to come. 

    To learn more about the Nature’s Healing Spaces Campaign, contact Karla Heeter, Foundation executive director, at 763-684-6808.

    Community Cancer Care Fund and Hope Fund

      Hope Street Party logo It is difficult enough to cope with a diagnosis of cancer without the added burden of financial stress that can occur as a result.

    The Community Cancer Care Fund and the Hope Fund offer emergency financial assistance to help with expenses during care and treatment. The Hope Fund provides support for those with breast cancer.

    Both funds are programs of the Buffalo Hospital Foundation. The Community Cancer Care Fund is funded by proceeds from the Street Party of Hope (formerly Pink Street Party) gifts from donors, and occasional grants. The Hope Fund is funded through the generous support of the Minnesota Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® as well as gifts from donors.

    Please Note: We are currently not accepting applications for the Hope Fund. The Community Cancer Care Fund is still available to anyone currently undergoing treatment for cancer.
