The Box Butte Health Foundation

The BBHF Capital Campaign has raised over $1 million for The Rehab & Wellness Center due to the generosity of businesses, individuals, and BBGH employees.

In 1996 the Box Butte Health Foundation was founded to support the healthcare and wellness needs of the Box Butte County community. Today, the same passion is stronger than ever. Box Butte General Hospital impacts every individual's life in and around Box Butte County in some way. Our passion as a Health Foundation is to contribute to, grow, and advance BBGH's services. It is your generosity that makes our mission possible.

Each day at BBGH is remarkable. Suffering is comforted. New life enters the world. Injuries are healed. Caregivers and patients come together. Lives are touched and people are changed. You can be part of this wonderful story by supporting exceptional healthcare and assisting people on their journey toward health and healing.

Chelsea was born and raised in Iowa and became the Foundation Director earlier this year, but has been with BBGH previously as an Operations Associate. She looks forward to helping the Box Butte Health Foundation continue to advance wellness within the community. 

"I was born and raised in Algona, Iowa, and graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree in Event Management from Iowa State University in 2015 (go Cyclones!). After college, I worked as an Assistant Manager for a retail company. My husband, Lucas, and I moved to Alliance in January of 2019 and both joined the Box Butte General Hospital team. I’m excited to help the BBHF continue to grow through the support of special events, and generous donations from individuals, our community, vendors, and local businesses. Any donation, no matter the size, helps make a difference in the lives of others every day."
