Letter from the Foundation

This is a special time for all of us at the Foundation as we celebrate 40 years of serving our beloved Saint John’s Health Center.

Despite some bumps in the road such as the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the years have been kind to us, and we have remained solidly committed to the values of our founding sisters as we transitioned to the leadership of our new sponsor, Providence Health & Services.

Our Health Center today is a special blend of compassionate care and clinical excellence. We are expanding our already distinguished services in numerous specialty areas including neuroscience, orthopedics, cancer, cardiology and women’s health. We pride ourselves on offering a full spectrum of treatment and diagnostic services and meeting the specific needs of our community.

The Foundation continues to grow as a philanthropic partner with the Health Center, and we are committed to our stated mission to provide leadership and be the catalyst for philanthropic support for the hospital and the John Wayne Cancer Institute. We are comprised of a strong base of trustees and volunteers who appreciate Saint John’s for the wonderful place it has become and who wish to ensure its future and help it evolve.

The Health Center is poised for a thriving future, reflected in the upcoming development plans for our north and south campuses, and the Foundation will be behind this effort every step of the way. We are grateful for the support of our many friends and partners, both longtime and new. We hope you enjoy this special 40th anniversary issue of Saint John’s magazine and invite you to share your feedback on our magazine by taking a brief online survey.
