Sequoia Hospital Heroes
Caring for our Community

April, 2020 

Dear Friends of the Sequoia Hospital Foundation,

Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital is astounded by the generosity of the many individuals, companies, and organizations who have reached out to help us during these past few months. Our community is supporting our physicians, nurses, and caregivers during this challenging and stressful time, and we are so grateful.

Some examples of acts of humankindness toward our caregivers include:

  • Restaurants partnering with individuals offering sponsored meals
  • Community crafters sewing face masks
  • Snack and care packages for our hospital departments
  • In-kind donations of masks, gowns, gloves, hand sanitizer, and wipes
  • Handmade cards
  • Girl Scout Cookies

In times of uncertainty, the doctors, nurses, and other care teams at Sequoia work tirelessly to help our community. The world’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented, and your support today can help Sequoia’s efforts. Support can take many different forms, from donating needed supplies to making a monetary donation.

In light of the current COVID-19 efforts, the Sequoia Hospital Foundation is focusing attention on our Caregiver Response Fund. Donations to this fund are being used to benefit our caregivers during their response to COVID-19 and for the treatment of our patients affected by it.

We are so grateful for the incredible community of donors who support Sequoia and allow us to be a leader in health care on the Peninsula. On behalf of our Board of Directors, physicians and nurses, and all of the Sequoia team — but most importantly, on behalf of our patients and families — we thank you for your kindness and generosity.

If you would like to share your Sequoia Hero story with us, please email sequoia.foundation@dignityhealth.org

In Gratitude,

Jennifer A. Svihus, CFRE
President and Chief Philanthropy Officer
Sequoia Hospital Foundation

At no other point in history has the commitment to community health been as much at the forefront of our collective attention as it is today."
