CAMC Foundation Hospitality House
The CAMC Foundation Hospitality House provides free or significantly reduced cost lodging to patients and their families while receiving medical care away from their home communities.
Unlike a hotel, the CAMC Foundation Hospitality House provides opportunities for those going through similar stressful situations to come together as a group where they can support one another.
With the help of generous and compassionate donors, the CAMC Foundation can provide for the physical comfort and emotional needs of families during a medical crisis so that they may participate fully with the medical team as partners in care.
The CAMC Institute of Academic Medicine has been committed to improving health through research for more than 40 years.
Through research, education, and health promotion, CAMC Institute for Academic Medicine aims to improve the health of our patients and community.
Research focuses on:

Upcoming Event CAMC Foundation Run For Your Life
Saturday, June 18, 2022 5-mile Run, 2.5-mile Walk
The CAMC Foundation Run for Your Life is a 5-Mile Run, 2.5-Mile Walk created by a group of runners to honor their friend Charleston Daily Mail Sports Editor, Jodi Jividen, who passed away from colorectal cancer in 2002.
Since 2004, the event has grown to honor and memorialize many people who have faced the terrible disease of colorectal cancer.
The mission of the event is to benefit colorectal cancer awareness and screening initiatives to help people who could not otherwise afford critical screening procedures in our community.
