Started in 1983, the IMH Foundation supports Ivinson Memorial Hospital in providing the best care to our community. We believe in this vision, and work with our donors and community partners to make it a reality.
The IMH Foundation staff work as a team to bring the vision of the Foundation to life. They manage the daily operations of the Foundation, as directed by the IMH Foundation board.

Joe believes working at the Foundation is rewarding because he can help impact the healthcare for everyone in his community. You’ll notice Joe frequently say Ivinson is a great place to come to work every day. Joe notes he has lived in enough different places to know how special Laramie is and what a reward it is to be able to call it home. Spending time in the hills with his family - including the ones that bark - and hiking, camping, and exploring is the best way for everyone to spend the summer. Joe says being one small part of Ivinson has been a great experience, and living in Wyoming will always be his favorite.
