Addressing Albion's health concerns

Why is Albion Health Care Alliance asking for donations?

The Albion Health Care Center later renamed the Cram Medical Center, filled a void after the loss of Albion Community Hospital.

Each year the hospital would hold The Albion Hospital Ball, where Albion’s finest would dress up to dance and contribute to Albion’s caregiving facilities.

After Albion’s Hospital closed, the event was still held and renamed Albion’s Healthcare B.A.S.H.

Now, after COVID-19 we are asking for donations remotely. 

We greatly appreciate your help that allows us to help those less fortunate.
