Our story began in 1950 when the Feather River Sanitarium was built to serve the community of Paradise. Over the years, Adventist Health grew it’s programs and services, serving mothers and newborns, expanding emergency, cardiac and cancer care services, and starting and building rehabilitation and hospice programs. The 100 bed hospital stood at the center of it all, and healthcare thrived in our community.
The Feather River Health Foundation was established in 1983, as a 501(c)(3) charity to connect our generous community to help provide for healthcare needs. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, we fund technology, equipment, programs, services and the greatest needs of the hospital to help improve access to healthcare and save lives.
The Camp Fire that started November 8, 2018, forever changed our community. While the landmarks, landscapes and we have all changed, our mission remains the same. We will endure and keep caring for the health of our patients, friends, and neighbors. We will work to rebuild, alongside the rebuilding of our town and greater community, Adventist Health and the Feather River Health Foundation stand together with you to advance the health of our community.
