The role of the Crittenton Foundation’s Employee Unlimited Potential Group is to seek and secure gifts from employees while promoting the employees, hospital, and community. Employee Unlimited Potential (UP) is a group of hospital employees who have made a philanthropic investment in Crittenton. Employees carry on a tradition of philanthropy initiated by Crittenton’s founder, Howard McGregor, Jr. In 1965, Howard McGregor, Jr. donated a portion of his farmland to build a hospital and raised $2.5 million from the community. Crittenton Hospital Medical Center stands on this land today.

Spring Is Sprung!
The weather is finally getting warmer which means the UP Patio is open (photos of the picnic tables) just outside the cafeteria and so is the UP Walking Trail!!! The Walking Trail is a .25 mile loop that is located just behind the Parking Garage, near the oxygen farm
The mission of Crittenton Hospital Medical Center’s Employee Unlimited Potential (UP) Group is to promote and support employees, the hospital, and the community. If you are looking to join UP, please complete the membership form and return to the Crittenton Foundation.
Please take a look at our new walking trail sign! It’s located at the South entrance behind the Parking structure. Relax and de-stress on the UP Walking Trail (1/4 mile) on your next break/lunch hour.
