Promoting quality healthcare through philanthropy Foundation supporting technology and programs By Debbie Mason


he Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County has been providing grants for services and equipment to care for women with breast cancer since the foundation’s inception in 2001. Technology grants to Healdsburg District Hospital have provided a new CT suite of equipment, women’s diagnostic center equipment and this year provided for the purchase of a new “wide” MRI that will create the opportunity for bet-

ter diagnosis and treatment for women’s cancer and other issues. Donors to the foundation have made possible the enhancement of the hospital’s emergency department, developed the region’s only certified Stroke Center and many other technology upgrades that benefit all local employers and families by keeping access and quality healthcare nearby. Annually, the Healthcare Foundation raises dollars in the region from northern Santa Rosa/Windsor to Cloverdale and beyond, from donors who under-

stand that investing with the Healthcare Foundation means our neighbors who live and work here will have access to the medical and dental health they need — without worrying about their ability to pay for those services. This year, the Healthcare Foundation’s grant commitments include $100,000 each to Alliance Medical Center, Alexander Valley Healthcare and PDI Surgery Center to ensure that those who need screenings, medicine and medical and dental care can been seen locally, close to home. In addition, the Healthcare Foundation will provide scholarships to nurse practitioners from Sonoma State University. This year, the Healthcare Foundation has been actively convening nonprofit providers, as well as local residents to create a 10-year vision of a healthier community.

The foundation earlier this year made a $50,000 grant to Corazón Healdsburg to support its outreach and engagement work with low income Latino residents.
