Willing Hearts Memorial Garden

The Willing Hearts Memorial Garden was dedicated in September of 2017, in memory of longtime hospital supporter, former KDMC board member, and Willing Hearts Circle member, Sue Fenn Minter.

The garden is located on the northwest end of the hospital and it features a four-foot Maltese cross, which is the symbol of the Willing Hearts. This cross was built by Sue Fenn Minter's husband, James, and it serves to commemorate Sue Fenn Minter and Willing Hearts members who have passed away. This garden is surrounded by beautiful flowers and open to the public as a place to come sit peacefully.

Memorial bricks and benches can be purchased in memory of a loved one, or simply as a token of your support to our hospital.

T-Shirt Sales

If you’ve been to King’s Daughters Medical Center or one of our clinics lately, you’ve probably seen one of our employees decked out in a KDMC t-shirt or sweatshirt.  They wear these in a wide range of colors. You may haven’t even seen us proudly displaying them at the store or a sporting event.  These shirts are part of a fundraising effort by the KDMC Foundation.  Foundation President and KDMC Occupational Wellness Director Melissa Leggett picks out colors and designs.

Our employees buy these and love wearing them to work and to play.  It gives them a comfortable way to go about their day and they get to proudly display their organization’s logo. It’s been a fun little idea that sprang up at the beginning of the pandemic and remains a continued effort by the Foundation.

Thanks to all KDMC employees who help make us better in so many different ways.


ICU Waiting Room Renovation

Through the generous donation of Frances Brady, the KDMC Foundation was able to renovate and dedicate the Thomas Pickens Brady, Jr. ICU Waiting Room. Families now have a comfortable spot to spend hours while monitoring the progress of their loved ones in our Intensive Care Unit. The space features sleeping chairs, a big-screen television, and a snack area.


Bereavement Room

There are times when families have to say goodbye to their loved ones. Thanks to Riverwood Family, the KDMC Foundation was able to create a space for those tough times. The Bereavement Room features a comfortable spot for those families to spend time to together and remember those who have meant so much to them.

Events and Fundraisers

Annual Golf Tournament

Each year, we hit the links to have a good time and raise some money. Over 80 of our corporate patrons give their time and money to support the KDMC Foundation.

Think Pink

Each year in October, the KDMC Foundation sponsors the Think Pink luncheon. This time is focused on education around cancer awareness.


Wrap Up Christmas

Each year, the KDMC Foundation celebrates Christmas by wrapping presents for anyone who wants to save some valuable time. The elves get together and put that finishing touch on all of those gifts. In 2021, we raised over $1,000 for our healthcare system.
