Marin General Hospital Foundation’s annual black-tie gala, New York, New York, was held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 in an exquisite tented venue in Corte Madera. Gala Chairs, Karen Pell and Heather Lupa, together with 585 hospital supporters enjoyed an elegant evening that included live music and dancing. Gross proceeds tallying over $750,000 were raised for our new Breast Health Center.

With the June opening of our new Breast Health Center at Drake’s Landing, Marin General Hospital will usher in a new era of personalized treatment and services for the women of Marin. Our comprehensive breast health program encompasses breast wellness, as well as diagnostics, treatment, reconstruction, and breast cancer survivorship.

Specifically designed for every woman’s comfort and convenience, our Breast Health Center will be equipped with the most advanced medical technologies available. With the launch of this new, ultra-modern facility, we look forward to taking our nationally recognized program to an even higher level.

We are so grateful for the support of our community!
