Holiday Appeal

“Wishing You a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season”

The Nanticoke Health Services Prescription Drug Fund was established over twenty years ago to assist patients who could not afford their prescription medications after their discharge from the hospital.

We take this holiday greeting for granted but for many, remaining healthy after leaving the hospital is impossible if they cannot afford their medication. And connecting patients with the health care services they need is our mission.

About 250 patients, needing about $60,000, will be unable to pay for their prescriptions when they are discharged from the hospital.

Your generous gifts to the Holiday Appeal continue to make a wish a reality for many. Being here for one another is what it means to be part of the Nanticoke family.

Please join us in giving from the heart and making a difference in just one patient’s life. You will be part of keeping them connected to better health.

From our family to yours wishing you the blessings of health, family, friends and happiness this holiday season!

  • $1000 will provide medically necessary medications to four individuals so they can begin their journey to a healthier life.
  • $500 will allow two individuals to receive medications needed for their recovery and lead to a better quality of life through healthier outcomes.
  • $250 will assist one individual with medications. This could be a parent that needs the help of the Prescription Drug Fund so their child can have needed medications without the parent having to use money budgeted for other essentials.
  • $100 will provide financial support of the Prescription Drug Fund and help individuals in our community during a time of need.


The average cost per patient is $250. In the last ten years, individuals have received nearly $160,000 in support of prescriptions needed through the help of the community. Regardless of amount, every donation to the Prescription Drug Fund is a valuable gift to the patients at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, and in turn, to the future of the community we share.
