Help Modernize Our Community Hospital

Help Modernize Our Community Hospital

As one of America's Top 250 hospitals in the nation, Kaweah Health continues to receive national recognition for its excellence in providing high-quality medical services and patient-centered care to our patients. As the demand for healthcare services increases, our need to expand and improve our hospital increases. Recently, the Kaweah Health Foundation Board of Directors voted to prioritize raising funds for state-of-the-art equipment, as directed by our frontline medical team. Monies raised through June 2022 will go toward a Modernization Plan, to expand and make necessary improvements to our hospital.

The Foundation seeks monetary contributions to support ongoing patient-centered care at Kaweah Health, including specialized care for the 4,500 babies delivered per year and high-quality medical treatment for our seriously ill patients battling digestive (gastrointestinal) and lung diseases.

Included in the campaign are new HALO bassinets, designed to meet the needs of all new mothers and keep a baby within arm’s reach without the need to twist or stretch. For our medical-surgical units, the campaign will be obtaining Sonosite Ultrasound, portable ultrasound systems that offer wide views and bedside use.

Also included in the Modernization Campaign is an endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), which physicians use to perform minimally invasive procedures examining on organs and other structures that cannot be seen through standard endoscopy procedures. Having this equipment will allow physicians to provide better care for our patients. Funds raised by the Foundation will also provide new and improved ventilators to help modernize our subacute care facility on South Court Street.

Finally, to support the completion of the emergency department expansion, the Mineral King lobby will be renovated to once again offer coffee, food service, a gift shop, and seating area needed to supplement service to our patients, visitors, and staff, providing a serene and comfortable space to wait or take a break.

Every dollar counts and our community can rest assured that all contributions go directly to support the patient-centered Modernization Plan. Not one cent goes to administration, payroll, or overhead costs to operate the Foundation office.

Over the past 30 years, Kaweah Health employees have donated millions of dollars to support the mission and vision of the Foundation. Each of the aforementioned projects brings us one step closer to becoming a world-class healthcare provider for our community.
