PeaceHealth Southwest Foundation
The PeaceHealth Southwest Foundation is the primary fundraising arm of the Medical Center and manages over $11 million for programs such as Family Medicine Southwest, Cardiac Care, Hospice, Cancer Care, Diabetes Education and Physical Rehab. The Foundation is a separately incorporated not-for-profit organization. Its mission is to support the work of the Medical Center as it benefits the community. Therefore, it shares the same goals, namely to increase access and affordability and to work towards prevention. It accomplishes this by working with businesses and individuals that want to make an impact on the medical center as a vital community resource.
