Rubin Community Health Fund

The Hortense and Louis Rubin Community Health Fund was made possible by the proceeds from the operation and sale of the Rubin Dialysis Centers, with the goal of supporting programs for the prevention, management, and treatment of kidney disease and related health issues. The Fund is managed by the Community Foundation Staff and advised by an active committee of health care experts. To date, the fund has invested more than $700,000 in health initiatives in our region.
