Circle of Giving
Since opening our doors in 1989, PeaceHealth Peace Harbor Medical Center has provided a level of patient care in advanced imaging and technology that surpasses most other rural facilities. Having the best health care possible locally is important for our patients now and for those who will need us in the future.
Being a faith-based, not-for-profit, critical-access, rural health care system presents even more challenges than reciting this lengthy description. The key to our success in providing high quality health care is our strong culture of philanthropy. Our Foundation is committed to helping blessed people do beautiful things for the health and well-being of the Florence community.
We invite you to join our Circle of Giving by giving an annual gift of $1,000 or more and become part of our mission of exceptional medicine and compassionate care.
Special Recognition for Generous Donors
SUPPORTING our Mission includes caring for patients who are unable to pay for the medical services they need with financial assistance through our Bridge Assistance Program. This level of compassion began in 1894 when two young nuns of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace stepped off the train in Fairhaven, Washington. Soon after, they opened a new hospital amongst the logging camps and fishing villages.
This spirit of compassion lives on today as we continue to care for those experiencing social and economic challenges. Providing necessary medical services regardless of ability to pay, speaks volumes about the integrity and value of our Mission. It is a strong statement of social justice, and respect for the dignity and worth of those we serve.
Members of the Scrub Club reflect this commitment to our Mission by having made a cumulative donation of $10,000.
White Coat Society
PROVIDING programs and services needed by our patients and families is a crucial part of community health care. Our Diabetic Care Program, ranked as one of the best in the state of Oregon, helps people to manage necessary lifestyle changes and prevent serious outcomes. Our OB (Obstetrics) team provides birthing classes and makes home visits to assist new parents with the changes a new baby brings. Our Counseling Services offer outstanding care and treatment for patients suffering from mental illness and behavioral issues by assisting with medication administration, social skills and community interactions. Our Hospice team holds a special place in the heart of our community by helping patients, families and friends through the final days of life.
Members of the White Coat Society reflect this level of service to our community by having made a cumulative donation of $50,000.
DISCOVERING new advancements in technology and treatment is the ultimate goal in improving both the quality and quantity of the lives of our patients. Having the ability to locate abnormalities in the earliest stages and providing treatment using minimally invasive procedures drastically changes the outcomes of diseases.
Health care has changed dramatically over the past 25 years with the development of CAT scanners, MRI, advanced ultrasound, laparoscopy, endoscopy and joint replacements. In fact, a common term like "exploratory surgery" has all but disappeared from our vocabulary, highlighting the luxury of complex technologies we have come to view as routine.
Members of the High-Tech Alliance reflect this vision of futuristic health care by having made a cumulative donation of $100,000.
Black Bag Fellowship
HEALING is the true art of health care. Holding a trembling hand, building relationships with those in our care, offering the medicine of listening or the hope of a smile, fixing what can be fixed and having the courage to make it better...even when it isn’t fixable.
It is giving oneself to the aid and assistance of another in need. It is understanding that "caregiving" is made of two verbs that must be applied simultaneously. It is realizing that the only difference between our patients and us is one lab test, five imaging tests or a mere forty years. It is a privilege to care for our patients, family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, supporting them in tough times, celebrating in the good times and healing in the meantime.
Members of the Black Bag Fellowship reflect this sacred place of healing by having made a cumulative donation of $250,000.
