The 1950 Sequoia Society

The Sequoia Hospital Foundation’s 1950 Sequoia Society recognizes those individuals in our community who have provided for Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital’s future through an estate or planned gift. The 1950 Sequoia Society was launched on October 15, 2018 to coincide with the 68th anniversary of the dedication of Sequoia Hospital. The inaugural luncheon honored the 53 founding members of the Society.

Sequoia Hospital’s innovative legacy stems from a group of visionary women in the 1930s who created one of the nation’s first health care districts.  This group of visionaries, led by Mrs. Dove Beeger, sought to develop a community hospital that strived toward high-quality, personalized care.  On October 15, 1950, Sequoia Hospital celebrated its dedication.  Each of these women left their thumb print on Sequoia Hospital and it is still alive and well today!

By including Sequoia Hospital Foundation in your estate plans, you are also leaving your thumb print on the future of the hospital. Your legacy will help Sequoia Hospital write its next innovative chapter so we can continue to live up to the high standards of care set forth by its founders decades ago.
