The Ocean Beach Hospital Foundation works to improve the health of those who live, work and play in South Pacific County. The Foundation fulfills its mission by raising funds to support community education, upgrades to technology, equipment and facilities, and innovative health care programs that have far-reaching benefits.
The Foundation is now taking on the bold effort of raising funds to purchase a new CT Scanner – our current 12-year old machine is nearly out of date. We have committed to raising $212,650 – half of the cost of a new scanner. All donations are being matched dollar for dollar. The new CT Scanner will have better imaging, be faster and use less radiation than our current aging scanner. Help us upgrade this life-saving piece of equipment! If you’d like to contribute, please use the Paypal link below or contact Tammie Jefferies for offline gifts.
Some of the other projects and programs made possible by the Foundation include:
Equipment purchases for the new Ocean Park Clinic, making health care more accessible to even more of our neighbors
Mindray patient monitoring system, helping providers to identify health problems early
Digital mammography machine, for better imaging and easy file storage and retrieval
PICC line ultrasound, for the successful long-term administration of intravenous medication and other fluids
Yellowfins surgery table stirrups, improving surgical site access for doctors
College scholarships, improving access to higher education in the health professions for local high school students
Adverse Childhood Experiences training subsidization
The Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 1999, and since its inception has raised more than $1 million to support enhanced healthcare in South Pacific County.
