About the Foundation
The Holy Name Medical Center Foundation was created in 1986. Its mission is to encourage the philanthropic support of Holy Name Medical Center by raising awareness of the Medical Center's capabilities and inviting the community to invest in a rewarding process that supports the values, preserves the interests and meets the expectations of the community by making a positive difference in the health and well being of all those within it.
Today, the Foundation-guided by a Development Committee
- continues to build bridges between the Medical Center and the community it serves while seeking ongoing donor support for its state-of-the-art facilities, medical technologies, patient care programs and services.
Over the years, the Foundation has helped raise millions of dollars for new state-of-the-art medical facilities including The BirthPlace, The Sister Patricia Lynch Regional Cancer Center, The George Pitkin, MD Emergency Care Center and The George and Amy Newman Cardiac Diagnostic Center.
The Holy Name Medical Center Foundation and its staff
are committed to increasing the generous support needed to carry out the mission of Holy Name Medical Center and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace, the Medical Center's founding sponsor. As a private, not-for-profit organization, Holy Name Medical Center receives no federal or state subsidies or county tax support, making it that much more critical for the Holy Name Medical Center Foundation to seek independent donor support.
