Call 805-686-3972 for more details about Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital Foundation.

The Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital Foundation is a not-for-profit organization devoted to generating and channeling financial support for the hospital.

Since 2002, with strong community support, the foundation completed an $8 million drive to establish an Endowment Fund for long term needs and a $7 million rebuilding campaign.

While the rebuilding was required to meet earthquake standards, it allowed us to transform Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital into a vibrant center for healing and care that’s unusual for a rural community of our size. The hospital now includes:

  • An infusion suite for cancer patients
  • An expanded Emergency Department
  • Advanced equipment for heart monitoring and imaging
  • Modern patient rooms with private patios and healing gardens

Focus for the Future

Each year the foundation sponsors a popular health fair in October, puts on a holiday gala and conducts an annual giving appeal.

We continue to ask for unrestricted gifts to support essential services and enable the hospital to respond to health care changes. We also seek donations for the Endowment Fund to ensure the hospital’s future financial health. In addition, we encourage you to support these important programs:

  • The Patient-Care Equipment & Technology Fund – To help replace, upgrade and acquire needed equipment and technology.
  • The Building Improvements Fund – For ongoing maintenance and upgrades so we can continue to deliver high-quality care in a welcoming and comforting setting.

Make a Difference for Santa Ynez Valley
