1889 Foundation


1889 Foundation, formerly known as Conemaugh Health Foundation was established on September 1, 2014. The 1889 Foundation was the recipient of funds from Conemaugh Health System's sale to Duke LifePoint Healthcare. As the 1889 Foundation, we are instantly connected to two things that are central to our rich history - the Great Johnstown Flood of 1889 and Conemaugh Valley Memorial Hospital, the hospital that was built from an outpouring of donations worldwide after the floor. The 1889 Foundation proudly reflects this region's enduring resilience and historic spirit of giving. Now, as the 1889 Foundation, we can do even more together! Because our Foundation will no longer fund hospital-related expenses, we will be able to focus on a new, broader mission of addressing health and wellness needs of our communities, primarily in the Cambria and Somerset region. The 1889 Foundation is dedicated to partnering within our community to identify where we can make the greatest difference in areas such as population health and disease management. The Foundation's focus for funding will concentrate on the areas that are negatively impacting the health and well-being of our local communities.
