The foundation is a not-for-profit organization that safeguards the hospital’s charitable assets and supports a number of carefully chosen efforts, both inside and outside the hospital.

Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital is a teaching hospital and trauma center with a history of caring for the Central Coast that dates back to 1888. Our hospital has earned national recognition for its medical services and beautiful healing environment.
