Horizon Health Foundation of East Central Illinois

Supporting Healthcare Services in Edgar County & Beyond

The Horizon Health Foundation reinvests generous contributions from donors like you in healthcare for Edgar County and surrounding communities. When you lend your support to the foundation, you are improving access to high-quality healthcare services for yourself, your family, and your neighbors.

The foundation has provided funding for the following projects:

  • EZ Care/NAL Health Clinic – EZ Care is a convenient walk-in clinic located off Route 1 South across from the Paris industrial park. The NAL Health Clinic, located inside the EZ Care building, is a primary healthcare clinic for North American Lighting employees and their family members who are covered by NAL’s health insurance.
  • Outpatient Surgery Expansion – The expansion provides more beds, resources, and room to better serve our patients.
  • Rehabilitation Services – A new 21,000-square-foot facility located behind the hospital provides comprehensive rehab services, and is also equipped with a dialysis center and sleep lab.
  • Phipps Fund – This special fund was established in memory of the late Dr. Leland Phipps, one of the founders of our foundation. The fund is used for health services and resources that were important to Dr. Phipps. These include recruiting talented physicians and other healthcare professionals, providing special resources for the care of families and children, and providing long-term financial stability of locally-managed healthcare services.
  • Aquatic Therapy – This new physical therapy service features the Hydroworx 350 underwater treadmill which includes “zero entry,” resistance jets, and a massage hose. The warmth of the water, in combination with the buoyancy, provides decreased pain and allows patients to move more freely than on land.
  • Reach Out and Read Program – The foundation is a proud sponsor of this program, which provides free books to children (infants to age 5) at well-child visits. This nationwide initiative is supported at a local level with funding from the foundation and emphasizes the importance of reading and language in early childhood development.
