2023 Top Funding Priorities:

  • Adolescent Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Program
    With your support, we will initiate MarinHealth’s Adolescent Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), where the families of children aged 12-17 can seek professional help that is covered by insurance. Extending MarinHealth’s community values to a vulnerable population, our goal is a small, local, specialized program focused on providing practical support in a caring environment where children can learn to cope with stresses, manage difficult emotions, and form healthy relationships.

  • Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery Program
    MarinHealth provides the full spectrum of heart and vascular care, from education and prevention to state-of-the-art testing and diagnostics, minimally invasive coronary, valve, and electrophysiology (heart rhythm) procedures, heart surgery, and cardiac rehabilitation. Founded in 2009 by long-time donors Bill and Reta Haynes, our Haynes Cardiovascular Institute is a leading-edge program that covers all of the essential elements of cardiovascular care at MarinHealth. Together with your philanthropic support, we will ensure the continued growth of our cardiac program through the expansion of the minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) program at MarinHealth’s Haynes Cardiovascular Institute. Your support will help us acquire life-saving equipment and partner with UCSF cardiac surgeons to meet increased patient need and assist high-risk patients who would otherwise be directed elsewhere for treatment.

  • Novato Outpatient Imaging Equipment
    As medical technology continues to advance, so does the community demand for the highest level of imaging modalities in Marin County. MarinHealth plans to expand its ultrasound, x-ray, screening mammography, and MRI services in an accessible new Northern Marin location to better serve patients in Northern Marin and Sonoma County.

  • O-Arm Imaging System
    Today, many major hospitals in the Bay Area utilize the next generation of 3D imaging technology: the O-Arm (TM). Widely considered the leading device for complex spine and neurological surgeries, the O-Arm™ is an intraoperative 3D imaging system designed to support today’s less-invasive procedures. It is essential for situations where the surgeon needs the clearest, most precise, detailed, and immediate view of the patient’s anatomy. The O-Arm is critical to advancing MarinHealth’s track record for providing the highest standards of care and treating even more complex spine and neurological surgeries that, in years past, have been referred elsewhere. With philanthropic support, we can bring the benefits of this superior, next-generation technology to MarinHealth surgeons and their patients today. Please click here to learn more.

Additional opportunities for ongoing support include:

  • Oncology Patient Navigators

Currently, patient navigators are available to serve individuals diagnosed with breast, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary cancers at MarinHealth Medical Center. Philanthropy provides resources to support cancer patients with a variety of services during their treatment including transportation, nutrition, emotional support, and so much more.
  • Oncology Patient Assistance Fund
    From leading-edge treatments to cutting-edge healing environments, compassionate care teams to state-of-art technologies, patient and family support groups to an innovative Integrative Wellness Center — MarinHealth offers the full spectrum of cancer care opportunities. But even with comprehensive services, the cancer journey can come with obstacles. When you support the Oncology Patient Assistance Fund, your generosity helps provide resources for cancer patients in need.

New Graduate Nurse Residency Program
Nurses are the heartbeat of all hospitals and that is especially true here at MarinHealth. Advocate, care coordinator, pharmacy interface, therapy liaison — they do it all while providing essential, hands-on care at the patient’s bedside. In fact, a nurse’s skills and clinical judgment shape virtually every moment of the patient experience — and have enormous impact on the outcomes of a patient’s care. Anyone who has experienced care at MarinHealth can attest to this. Please help us invest in nurses who will carry MarinHealth’s care standards and values into the future and prepare them to evolve into seasoned professionals who can expand their skills, keep up with developments in medicine, and mentor the next generation of colleagues.
