Keeping Moms Safe—Preventing Childhood Trauma Grant
St. Joseph Hospital has received a $142,000 grant from Healthcare Foundation
for Orange County (HFOC) to expand our Maternal Depression program to
ensure more moms receive the help they need for not only depression, but
a full range of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) including
anxiety, post-traumatic stress syndrome and other mental health challenges.
When moms are not well, the wellbeing of their babies and entire families
can be compromised. The risk of childhood trauma is increased. Early detection
and prompt treatment for these mothers is critical.
Our comprehensive screening and treatment program already includes cognitive
behavioral therapy, support groups, and, when needed, inpatient and pharmacological
intervention. St. Joseph Hospital caregivers are now receiving mandatory
training to identify moms with PMADs. They are learning to recognize the
signs of intimate partner violence and human trafficking, and when and
how to report such cases. Additionally, they are learning how to make
appropriate referrals to mental health and social work service providers
or community partners.
We are committed to providing the highest clinical excellence and compassionate
care for the nearly 5,000 women who choose to deliver their babies at
St. Joseph Hospital each year. We thank HFOC for their support of this
program since 2016.
PAYING IT FORWARD….
Robert Stauffer is no stranger to St. Joseph Hospital. In fact, he was
born at the hospital and this year both will celebrate a 90th birthday!
In the early 2000s, Rob made a decision to invest in the Patient Care Center
through three Charitable Gift Annuities (CGA) ~ a gift of cash or appreciated
assets to the hospital in exchange for a lifetime income. Last year in
December Rob decided to create another CGA to support Cancer Services.
Rob says, “I believe the hospital needs support from the public.
I was born in St. Joseph Hospital and have lived in Orange County all
my life. I don’t want to go to another hospital. I know that St.
Joseph provides quality care and I want to be sure it always will be there
for me and our community.”
Geri Musgrave Names St. Joseph Hospital as Beneficiary
Geri Musgrave is a long time cancer survivor and supporter of St. Joseph
Hospital and its Cancer Services. Recently she continued her support by
naming St. Joseph Hospital Foundation as the sole beneficiary of her Individual
Retirement Account (IRA). She also signed an Irrevocable Pledge Agreement
making this gift secure for the future.
“My decision to gift St. Joseph was easy since I outlived all other
family members. St.Joseph’s “family” has the expertise
to provide for those in need. Many years of experience has proven their
capability to increase goodness where needed.”
The Foundation is grateful to Geri for her generous support.

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.
