Guardian Angel Gifts

The Guardian Angel program provides former patients and their families with a unique way to recognize a Sequoia physician, nurse, housekeeper, volunteer, chaplain or other staff member who made a special difference during their visit or stay.

With their tax-deductible donation to the Foundation, donors can name their own Sequoia Hospital Guardian Angel, while also giving to support Sequoia’s life-saving work.

The Foundation is honored to recognize Sequoia’s Guardian Angels by presenting them with a card informing them of the donor’s thoughtful gift as well as a custom pin to wear, designating them as a special member of Sequoia’s Community of Caring. Donors and their Angels will be invited to a special reception in their honor held annually at the hospital.

A complete listing of all individuals and departments recognized as Guardian Angels is on display in Sequoia Hospital's Girdlestone Lobby on the Foundation's electronic donor display. This listing may also be downloaded from the link to the right.

Recent patients will receive a mailing inviting them to designate a Guardian Angel. Guardian Angel gifts may also be made by recent patients using the "Donate Now" button above.

In July of 2019 I had an aortic valve replacement. It was flawlessly performed by Dr. Luis Castro. Five and a half months later I traveled overseas and had no problems whatsoever. Dr. Luis Castro is a great doctor. I just can’t say enough about his professionalism and the care he provides for his patients.
He gave me my health back and I am able to live a normal life again. I am grateful for that and part of my gratitude includes a donation to Sequoia Hospital.
