About The RMH Foundation
The RMH Foundation exists solely to support Sentara RMH Medical Center and enhance its mission to improve health and promote wellbeing. Sentara RMH has been able to significantly improve the care patients receive because of gifts from our caring and generous community. One hundred percent of donations directly benefit patients and our community through the purchase of new equipment and support of compassionate programs.
Your generous support provides quality, cost-effective healthcare for Harrisonburg, Rockingham County and surrounding communities.
Mr. William Glodomore Leake made a gift through his estate in 1908 leading to the opening of Sentara RMH in 1912. He had a generous philanthropic spirit and a desire to help secure the best in healthcare for our local community. Through his generosity, Mr. Leake set a standard of excellence that has been perpetuated by each and every person, business, and civic organization that so generously supports Sentara RMH.
It’s difficult to admit you need help. When that help comes at the exact right time and place, it feels like more than help, it feels like a miracle.
Donors have directly made a huge difference in my life and the lives of my patients. Providing scholarships and financial assistance to continue my education and have access to state-of-the-art equipment is a game-changer.

Seeing sick patients get better because of superior, new technology never gets old. Relief, hope and joy—those are hard to measure, but easy to see.
Regional Oncology Director, Sentara RMH
We chose to support the RMH Foundation through our estate because we wanted to give a gift that grows and helps here in our community. I feel good knowing my family, friends and neighbors will benefit from my gift for years to come.
