Funding Priorities

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

2022 Top Funding Priorities:

Please consider these life-saving opportunities for support.

  • Outpatient MRI for Specialty Care
    A new state-of-the-art outpatient MRI will allow MarinHealth to serve more patients in need and grow both our Cancer and Cardiac Care MRI Programs as well as many others. This new piece of equipment will replace our current MRI machine with a new generation model equipped with a state-of-the-art magnet and advanced imaging software to provide faster, clearer, and more detailed images not possible with older scanners. It will also ensure a quieter, more comfortable patient experience. To learn more about how you can support and make possible this new MRI, please click here.
  • Pediatric Emergency Services
    The Emergency Department at MarinHealth Medical Center is committed to exceptional care for our pediatric patients. We are fortunate to have an excellent partner in UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital for consultations and referrals in pediatric specialties. In addition, we are certified as an Advanced Pediatric Receiving Center. With your help, we can continue to build and sustain a pediatric emergency toolkit and a team of physicians and nurses, including a Child Life Specialist and a Pediatric Nurse Liaison, trained to meet the special needs of children who come to us for care when it is needed most.

  • 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.

  • EEG and EMG Equipment
    Local access to neurological testing — an electroencephalogram (EEG) to look at the brain waves and electromyography (EMG) to explore nerve conduction and muscles — is limited in the North Bay. Although both technologies are accessible for inpatient and emergency care at MarinHealth, physicians often must refer patients from the outpatient practice to complete the testing outside of Marin County for non-emergent or routine EEGs or EMGs.

    The solution — equipping MarinHealth Outpatient Neurology with EEG and EMG equipment — will benefit our local community in more ways than one. North Bay patients will no longer need to travel for these procedures. Additionally, by offering access to the best diagnostic equipment, we will be able to attract additional physicians to our exceptional neurology team. By funding the purchase of this essential technology, your generosity can bring these possibilities to life.

Philanthropy provides resources to support cancer patients with a variety of services during their treatment including transportation, nutrition, emotional support, and so much more.
