Impact

For over 40 years, the Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation has been a bridge between the community’s vision for a healthier Salinas Valley and a partnership with Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System to make it a reality.

Our generous donors provide the extras that our doctors and staff need to advance state-of-the-art healthcare and deliver what’s truly needed to create a healthier future for all:

  • Funding resources at the Susan Bacon Cancer Resource Center at no cost for those fighting cancer, regardless of where they receive their treatment;
  • A new Outpatient Infusion Center that provides state-of-the-art treatment in a healing environment;
  • New GeniusTM 3D MammographyTM technology at the Nancy Ausonio Mammography Center, which detects 20-65 percent more invasive cancers than 2D and reduces callbacks by 40 percent;
  • Funding for the Madison Clinic for Pediatric Diabetes operated in Salinas in conjunction with UCSF to provide the only pediatric diabetes center in Monterey County, reducing the need for children to travel to the Bay Area for care;
  • An expansion of the Palliative Care program to include more education and resources for the Palliative Care team to better serve their patients;
  • Innovative heart procedures that previously were never available here, such as the Watchman procedure, which reduces the need to take blood thinners and changes the lives of many patients; and,
  • Funds raised through the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Program purchased a vehicle to transport pediatric patients and their caregivers to and from the Bay Area for specialty care services.

Our donors are part of a caring community who help Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System make the healthiest impact on the lives of everyone in the Salinas Valley.
