The St. Joseph Hospital Heart and Vascular Center is recognized as one
of the top heart programs in the nation by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
Thanks to the Stanley W. Ekstrom Foundation gift, the Heart and Vascular
Center can expand services to treat a wide range of cardiac and vascular
conditions. As part of this program, the new Structural Heart Disease
Program corrects congenital and serious heart conditions that have traditionally
required open-heart surgery — using minimally invasive techniques.
Thank you to Mr. Steven Silverstein and the Stanley W. Ekstrom Foundation
for continuing Mr. Ekstrom’s legacy by “furthering the reach
of a philanthropic heart” and by supporting the mission of St. Joseph
Hospital to care for the dear neighbor. In recognition of their generosity,
The Valve Center will be named for the foundation.
Mental Health Hospital Triage Services Grant
St. Joseph Hospital has received a $483,435 grant from the Well Being Trust
to support our innovative Mental Health Hospital Triage Services Program.
Well Being Trust is a national foundation dedicated to advancing the mental,
social and spiritual health of the nation.
When individuals come to the St. Joseph Hospital Emergency Care Center
in mental health crisis, the Mental Health Hospital Triage Services Program
brings together a team of social workers and specialized nurses to assess
on a case-by-case basis, then link each patient to the appropriate services
(both in-patient and out-patient). Patients benefit with more timely evaluations,
reduced unnecessary hospital admissions, and smooth transitions to a full
array of community-based outpatient services. While patients achieve better
clinical and quality-of-life outcomes, the hospital and the community
also benefit with lower overall cost of care and reduced mental health
St. Joseph Hospital’s Emergency Care Center serves more mental health
patients than any other hospital in Orange County, and with the support
of the Well Being Trust, we continue to improve our clinical excellence
and compassionate care for these friends and family members.

George Dunbar Supports St. Joseph Hospital In Creating A Legacy of Health
In Orange County
George Dunbar has been a loyal patient and generous donor of St. Joseph
Hospital for many years. His treating physician is Dr. Warren Johnston,
so when Mr. Dunbar recently mentioned how grateful he was for the health
care he had received at St. Joseph Hospital, Dr. Johnston referred him
to the Foundation. Working together with the Foundation’s Planned
Giving team, Mr. Dunbar named St. Joseph Hospital as beneficiary of his
IRA retirement account. Mr. Dunbar feels the community needs a quality
hospital like St. Joseph Hospital and he wants to support it for the community.
This very substantial gift will provide a meaningful legacy for Mr. Dunbar,
and also gives St. Joseph Hospital future funding to continue providing
the best possible health care to Orange County.
