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 healthcare programs that have far-reaching benefits.

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. We are currently in the final phase of our campaign to raise $125,000 to purchase equipment for the Ocean Park Clinic, making healthcare more accessible to even more of our neighbors. 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:

  • 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 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 raises funds through a variety of events and activities, including its bi-annual golf tournament. The Foundation is also eligible to receive .5 percent of your Amazon purchases (paid by Amazon) when you shop using Amazon Smile. You can also make a direct gift of any amount using Paypal.
