Make a gift in honor of the care you received.

Here at Sequoia Hospital, many individuals work together to provide a compassionate and high-quality healthcare experience for patients and their families. Although there are many patient experiences, such as emergency care, welcoming a new member of the family, or a planned surgery such as a knee replacement, Sequoia's team is here when patients are in need.  

The Guardian Angel Program provides patients and their families with a unique way to recognize a Sequoia Hospital care provider as a Guardian Angel. This can be an individual or team across multiple departments and includes a physician, nurse, housekeeper, volunteer, chaplain, or other staff member who made a special difference during their visit or stay.

What is a "Guardian Angel"?

When making a gift to the Sequoia Hospital Foundation, donors have the option to dedicate their donation in honor of a “Guardian Angel.” These Guardian Angels are care providers from various departments across Sequoia Hospital and are recognized for their outstanding service. This program allows grateful patients and families to honor their care provider and give back.

With their tax-deductible donation, your Guardian Angel will be notified of your gift (without specifying the amount) and presented with a distinctive lapel pin honoring their commitment to care. 

As an "Angel Donor", donors will receive an invitation to our annual Guardian Angel Reception. It is at this event, with you present, that our Angel caregivers are personally thanked by Sequoia’s senior leadership team for their service.

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.
