Physician Giving

Improving the health of our community


The 1891 Society was established in 2014 to give special recognition to physicians who wish to improve the health of our community through philanthropy by supporting Erlanger Health System Foundations.

This society of active and retired physicians continues the tradition of healthcare excellence in the Erlanger Health System by providing funds for the latest medical technology, education, community outreach, and capital improvements.
