Community members formed Fulton County Hospital Foundation in June 2007 to advance the health and overall well-being services provided by Fulton County Hospital for the residents of Fulton, Sharp and Izard counties. The foundation’s board consists of concerned citizens who volunteer their time and efforts to raise funds for the hospital.
