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.

A special tribute of this type means that your Angel will be notified of your gift (without specifying the amount) and presented with a distinctive lapel pin honoring their commitment to care.

Further they will be recognized in perpetuity in our Guardian Angel Registry. As an Angel donor, you 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

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.
