Did You Know?

Cancer navigators are an integral part of quality cancer care. A recent study in the Journal of Cancer Nursing reported that patients with access to cancer navigators experienced significant increases in quality of life and satisfaction of care. For more information on how you can support this program, please visit our website at sjo.org/campaign.

The Stanley W. Ekstrom Foundation, who made a $100,000 gift to St. Joseph Hospital Heart and Vascular Services in 2017, has now pledged a new gift of $500,000 to support the Structural Heart program. The late Stanley W. Ekstrom made philanthropy a driving force throughout his life, along with his strong dedication to improving the lives of the unprotected and forgotten.

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 disability.

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.

If you would like more information or want to join the increasing number of friends who have included St. Joseph Hospital in their will, trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy, please contact Phil Barker, Director of Gift Planning, at (714) 347-7900.
