Mission Hospital Foundation
Comprehensive Campaign for Mission Hospital
THANK YOU FOR INVESTING IN THE FUTURE NEEDS OF OUR COMMUNITY
Mission Hospital successfully completed our $200 million comprehensive
campaign which will shape the future of health care in our community.
More than $201.3 million was raised, setting the stage for success. Thanks
to our family of donors, Mission Hospital can continue to help to improve
the health and quality of life across the region.
Your Spirit of Giving enables Mission Hospital to remain at the forefront of:
- Advanced technology, facilities and cutting-edge programs and services
- Innovative research initiatives and collaboration
- Nursing excellence through enhanced recruitment and ongoing training and
- Community benefit programs that nurture and support the underserved
The generosity of our donors allows us to support the hospital's various
centers of excellence:
Recently one of the foundation's major priorities has been raising
funds to support the Mission Neuroscience Institute. Thanks to the collective
support of hundreds of donors like you, more than $12 million has been
raised to support this critical project. Quite simply, the Mission Neuroscience
Institute would not have been possible without the philanthropic support
of our donors.
As new technologies emerge, philanthropy will enable Mission Hospital to
acquire the most sophisticated resources to enhance the comprehensive
integration of care at every level, yielding superior patient outcomes.
Over the last year, the hospital has invested in new technology in the
Surgical Intensive Care Unit, Respiratory Therapy, Gastrointestinal Lab
and most recently, the Women's Wellness Center and Mission Breast
This investment in Women's Services brought breast tomosynthesis or
3D mammography to our community. A revolutionary technology, tomosynthesis
provides a clearer, more accurate view of the breast and allows doctors
to more effectively pinpoint the size, shape and location of abnormalities.
Tomosynthesis allows our radiologists to examine breast tissue in one millimeter
slices rather than sorting through the complexities of one flat image.
This level of precision is enabling our physicians to detect cancer at
the earliest possible stage – well before it would be detected with
traditional 2D imaging.
Additionally, the $10 million gift from Sue and Bill Gross will allow Mission
Hospital Laguna Beach to implement a comprehensive plan that includes
new imaging technologies, expanded and enhanced facilities, and the provision
of emergency support services to ensure sustainability for generations to come.
Every gift touches the lives of our patients and their families.
