Adventist Health St. Helena's History

Our History

A rich legacy of giving since 2004

A group of community stakeholders and hospital leaders established St. Helena Hospital Foundation in 2004 with one purpose in mind: to improve the health of our communities by supporting the vision of St. Helena Hospital & Center for Behavioral Health (now Adventist Health St. Helena). As a 501(c)(3) charity, we partner with supporters like you to fund technology, equipment and programs that improve and save people’s lives. Since our inception, you and your neighbors have raised millions to improve the quality and availability of critical healthcare services for our communities and beyond.

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.
