Funding Priorities

Your continuing support is vital to providing our community with leading-edge, patient-centered care!

Thanks to so many people in our community, construction is well underway on our critically needed, state-of-the-art new hospital. While it is being built, we will continue providing Marin with innovative, world-class healthcare.

Top Funding Priorities:

Please consider these life-saving opportunities for support.

  • Haynes Cardiovascular Institute
    The Haynes Cardiovascular Institute, known for our leading-edge therapies and pioneering services, we are the only Heart Surgery Program and the only comprehensive Vascular Program in Marin County. Funding priorities include:
    • Structural Heart Program
      Our new Structural Heart Program offers multidisciplinary treatment of structural heart disease. A key component of our expanded services is Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). This groundbreaking minimally invasive procedure replaces a damaged aortic valve without removing it or surgically opening the chest.
    • Cardiac Rehabilitation
      Our outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is designed to assess each patient’s risk factors for heart disease and implement an individualized treatment plan to reduce their risk for future cardiac events. We offer patients a choice of two distinct, evidence-based approaches to rehabilitation including Dr. Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease®. We are the first in Northern California to offer this program, scientifically proven to prevent, stop, and even reverse heart disease by helping participants make significant lifestyle changes.
  • Cancer Care Program
    Known for superior outcomes and compassionate care, MarinHealth’s Cancer Care Program is the North Bay’s premier destination for cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. Our patients benefit from the latest treatments and technologies and a level of expertise on par with that of the finest teaching hospitals. In order to continue to provide the highest level of personalized, integrative care, close to home, we have identified the following funding priority:
    • Breast Health Center Mammography Software
      Volpara is a software solution designed to augment current screening technologies to provide better mammography images, particularly for women with dense breast tissue. Utilizing this state-of-the-art technology, we can reduce the number of repeat mammograms due to poor image quality and improve detection of early stage cancers.
  • Maternity Services
    MarinHealth has the only labor and delivery unit and Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in the county. We have teamed up with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital to expand services in neonatal and pediatric care with UCSF neonatologists on site. Our team is continuously looking to provide all families with a safe, caring environment to welcome new babies into the world—right here in Marin. Funding priorities include the purchase of new NICU/Pediatric equipment, such as:
    • NICU/Pediatric Equipment
      NeoMed Medfusion v6 3500 Enteral Ready Pump This pump helps ensure safe enteral feedings for our premature infants.
    • Dräger Jaundice Meter JM-105
      This transcutaneous Bili meter can assess bilirubin levels without performing a painful heel stick to obtain a blood sample.

Additional opportunities for ongoing support include:

  • Behavioral Health
    Our Behavioral Health Program has helped thousands of patients understand and cope with their symptoms to manage, or even overcome, mental illness. Our inpatient and outpatient services provide crisis intervention, evaluation, and treatment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

  • Braden Diabetes Center
    Living well is possible for people diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, or pre-diabetes. Your support of the Braden Diabetes Center provides workshops, one-on-one training, support groups, and expert care from nurses and dieticians—and helps prevent diabetes in future generations.

  • Integrative Wellness
    We embrace conventional medicine for the treatment of chronic and acute conditions. Yet providing for the complex needs of the whole person often requires a holistic approach, weaving integrative therapies into the patient’s overall healing plan, making them an empowered partner in their wellness. Your support of our Integrative Wellness Center will help our patients heal their body, mind and soul.
