TRMC opened its doors just weeks before the pandemic hit.

The LP Foundation, LP Building Solutions’ nonprofit giving division, has donated $150,000 to support Thomasville Regional Medical Center (TRMC), which provides medical care in the Clarke County, Ala. community.
“The LP Foundation has shown a true commitment to finding and filling a need in one of our communities,” said LP Executive Vice President, General Manager of OSB Jimmy Mason. “I’m thrilled we were able to provide resources to Thomasville Regional Medical Center, so they can continue the work they do in Clarke County.”
Thomasville Regional Medical Center’s doors officially opened in March 2020 — just two weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic put hospitals and the healthcare community under strain.
The LP Foundation recognized TRMC, which brings necessary medical services to the community, as a vital part of the LP Clarke County community and committed funding to ensure all residents have the care they need.
“We are honored by LP’s commitment to TRMC throughout these challenging times,” said TRMC CEO Curtis James. “With the generous donation, we will be able to continue to serve the great City of Thomasville and the surrounding communities.”
The donation will be used to meet the hospital’s needs for surgical equipment, medicine, and other medical supplies. A ceremony will be held at Thomasville Regional Medical Center later to celebrate the partnership; details for the ceremony will be released soon.
Founded mere months after the company formed in 1972, the LP Foundation has provided over $20 million to deserving nonprofits since its inception, including the Tennessee Wildlife Foundation, Harpeth Conservancy, Cumberland River Compact, and the Land Trust for Tennessee.
