As residents of St. Helena, we have realized how fortunate the community is to have first class health care available to it. Those facilities are available only because of past, present and future philanthropy and we are pleased and proud to have had an opportunity to be part of those philanthropic efforts.
Deborah and Kenneth Novack - Donors
Thanks to the generous support of the community, we are fortunate to have great cancer care locally. The Center gives the best possible care. They truly care about you from the moment you check in to the moment you leave. I was grateful to be close to my family and friends during this difficult time.
- Maria Zepeda, Grateful Patient
Early on in my career I discovered the importance of philanthropy. There are people - co-workers, family, patients, who need help every day. I give back to take care of those around us.
- Peggy O’Neill Director of Admitting
This experience has made me really appreciate every single day I have and realize how truly fortunate we are to have an incredible institution like St. Helena in our community. Every person I came across was compassionate, brilliant and responsive.

As employees, we experience the fruit of our incredibly philanthropic neighbors. We also dig deep because we believe serving others is a part of their healing. Giving turns words into action.
- Mike Dunn, DMin, BCC Director of Spiritual Care
A strong local hospital is vital to a thriving community, but it requires extra effort from all of us. Being a part of hospital leadership allows me to ensure we’re going the extra mile to provide the excellence we all deserve.
Patrick Stotesbery - Board of Directors, 2019 Vice Chair and 2018 Chair
Every community should have a place where anyone can go and feel like they can get great care. It’s the small town feel, paired with amazing care, that makes St. Helena Hospital special. Our nurse practitioner even postponed her vacation to be there for our delivery.
Stephanie & Michael Honig - Grateful Patients
This is our community and St. Helena Hospital is our hospital. The realities of healthcare are such that we must all do what we can to economically support a hospital of this caliber and make our community a better place for all to live.
Elaine & Rick Jones - Foundation & Hospital Governing Board Members
We are paying it forward to benefit generations to come and we couldn't be happier about this decision.
- Diane Livingston, grateful patient and former Foundation board member
The support I received and continue to get from Hospital staff is mind-blowing. I can’t come close to being able to give back what I received.
- Jim Smith, Grateful Patient
Life is about purposeful living and giving back. The basis of it all is to make our community a better place. It can be the smallest things that make a difference, and you get so much back from giving. Over the years our team of friends and fellow volunteers has become like a family.
Linda Andreae - Volunteer
Time and again, I am reminded by staff, patients, and their families that our most incredible asset at St Helena's is our employees. They are our fervent supporters, engaged in many ways, through hard work, kindness, or philanthropy. I LOVE working with our staff and am grateful to be part of this team.
- Patty Hsu, RN, BSN, CCRN Director of Clinical Care
