The WMHS Foundation, like the Western Maryland Health System, was created by combining two existing entities. The Sacred Heart Foundation, incorporated in 1992, and the Memorial Hospital Foundation, incorporated in 1993, began working in tandem when the Health System merged in 1996.
In 2001, Sacred Heart Foundation and Memorial Health Care Foundation entered into an agreement for the joint administration of their fundraising activities under the auspices of the Western Maryland Health System Foundation, Inc.
In 2006, the assets of both Foundations were also combined under one legal entity.
