Philanthropy: It’s In Our Genes!

The Foundation, led by its Board of Directors who serve as vital community advocates, has raised over $90 million to fund the latest equipment and technology, and obtain the finest medical team to provide an elevated health care experience for patients. With a rich legacy of giving since the hospital’s inception in 1878, donations have allowed for St. Helena Hospital to remain at its best, providing top quality care in the region.

Every community should have a place where anyone can go and feel like they can get great care. It’s the small town feel, paired with amazing care, that makes St. Helena Hospital special. Our nurse practitioner even postponed her vacation to be there for our delivery.

Life is about purposeful living and giving back. The basis of it all is to make our community a better place. It can be the smallest things that make a difference, and you get so much back from giving. Over the years our team of friends and fellow volunteers has become like a family.
