OUR FOUNDER

Dr. Peter Geittmann has been a practicing obstetrician/gynecologist on staff at Northwest Community Healthcare since 1981. Over that time, Dr. Geittmann (known to many as Dr. G) has delivered more than 5,000 babies. He also has seen many of his patients survive life-threatening diagnosis such as breast, uterine, ovarian and other cancers.


Over the years, hundreds of Dr. Geittmann’s patients who experienced a catastrophic medical event were employed, but either underinsured or did not receive insurance through their employers. These women would be faced with two very serious challenges; gathering the strength to battle and survive a potentially fatal diagnosis, and the accompanying cost to fight it.


Those experiences are what shaped Dr. Geittmann’s goal to form a foundation to help these individuals, who are working to help themselves – but need a hand up. The Dr. Peter Geittmann was officially established in early 2016 to begin the very important work to help not only these deserving women, but their children as well.
