Cottage Health’s history dates back to 1888, when a group of 50 women saw great medical needs in their growing community and formed the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Society. Their efforts led to the 1891 opening of the hospital, which they continued to nurture through the years.
Their giving spirit lives on today, throughout the Central Coast, with people like you who elevate the level of care that Cottage Health, a not-for-profit organization, provides in Santa Barbara, Goleta, and the Santa Ynez Valley.
