I had a good outcome because of the competent care I received at Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital. But another part of that was the comfort of being here in my home community. To look out the window while I was in ICU and see the ocean where my grandchildren play and surf and sail and fish. To have people you know in the community who are also your caregivers. To be able to have normal conversations with staff about something other than your medical care. We weren’t just surrounded by competent nurses, we were surrounded by friends. That’s one of the things you really feel at a community hospital, and it’s special.
Kathleen Grady, Pacific Communities Health District Foundation Board President

Welcome to the Pacific Communities Health District Foundation 

The Pacific Communities Health District Foundation is committed to encouraging and supporting Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital and its patients, as well as the health and well-being of those who live and work in the community.

Since our inception in 1983, we have provided funding for the Center for Health Education, medical equipment, wellness programs and services and assistance for low income patients with health care costs. We cannot do this without the generous contributions from our hospital staff, friends, neighbors and businesses. For this, we are truly grateful!
