About Us

The Dominican Hospital Foundation is honored to support the award-winning work of Dominican Hospital through philanthropic contributions from members of the community and local businesses.

With your support, we are changing and saving lives every day.

Foundation support has touched every one of the hospital's patient care departments and in doing so has impacted the care each one of the Dominican Hospital's patients receive every day.

Over 1,700 donors help us each year to acquire new technology, develop community services, help patients in need and construct facilities that enable us to provide the highest quality care.

Every private donation raised locally, stays local and is tax-deductible with 100% to benefit the area of choice.

Thank you for your interest and visiting our website.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call at (831) 462-7712.

Letter to the Community

Dear community members,

To begin with, I would like to thank Ted Burke for taking the helm as president of the Foundation for the past two years. Ted set a high bar for involvement and thoughtful consideration, and followed through with effective action. I, too, take this position seriously and will be working to better and advance the Foundation. All that we do is focused on providing the best possible patient care.

It is going to be a year of grand openings with the gardens going in, the surgery waiting area to be completed and the new fitness center realized.  It is always nice to see the results of our work and donations. We had a very good start to the year with the groundbreaking of Phase 1 of our Healing Courtyards project. You will read about in this issue and I hope you share our excitement. This project is going to have a very significant impact on the environment in the hospital along with important clinical outcomes.

And we are making good progress on our Comprehensive Cardiac Operating Suite with a recent gift of $500,000, a matching grant from anonymous donors. This means funds raised at our gala this year are doubled in value.

Going forward, we will be working on building more relationships, and working with our grateful patients. We ended last year very well exceeding our fundraising goal for the year by 30% or $545,000. A total of $2.28 million was raised and $2.27 million was transferred to the hospital for various initiatives.

As always we welcome your involvement.  Please get in touch with us if you would like to participate or take a tour with Foundation staff.

With appreciation,

Carol Lezin, President of Dominican Hospital Foundation

Dr. Nanette Mickiewicz, President of Dominican Hospital
