Samaritan Health Services and Columbia Bank share a common goal to support the communities in which we live and work.

I believe that good health care is one of the most important priorities in our communities.  As a Samaritan Society member, I am proud to be a part of a group of donors from across our region who support our local hospitals at a significant level.

As longtime residents of Albany and part-time residents of Lincoln City, our lives have intersected with Samaritan Health Services for many years. As we started to think about leaving a legacy, we were first drawn to help with the Samaritan Evergreen Hospice House project and have since become aware of the critical importance of Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital in meeting local needs. It is very rewarding to see our contributions put to use locally and to make a difference in the lives of our own community.

The mission of the Mario and Alma Pastega Family Foundation is to lend a helping hand by giving back to the communities that have supported our successful businesses. Our family is privileged to play a role in making the Samaritan Pastega Regional Cancer Center a reality. Through this, as well as other important projects and programs we support, we aspire to cultivate a passion for giving back in the next generation.

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.
