About the Foundation
The Foundation: Helping Secure the Best of Care
Queen of the Valley Foundation was established in 1969 by a group of local
residents who wanted to ensure ongoing, locally managed support for quality
medical care in our community. They knew that a financially healthy Medical
Center was vital to the future of the place they called home.
From the beginning, the Foundation has had one mission: to help provide
Queen of the Valley Medical Center with the resources it needs to offer
the best possible health care.
We are drawing on the strengths of our past - in particular, the tradition
of service to the community that created the Foundation in the first place.
The volunteer spirit - the desire to make things better for everyone here,
just because it is the right thing to do - is still what drives the Foundation.
Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $80 million for
Queen of the Valley Medical Center's equipment and facilities, while
increasing community awareness of the Medical Center's needs.
With a solid record of stability and achievement, the Foundation and its
dedicated volunteers continue to give crucial support to Queen of the
Valley and to the health of our community. As the community continues
to grow and as medical technologies evolve, the Foundation's work
will help the Queen to meet the community's future health care needs
and continue to have the best possible facilities and equipment. All of
us owe it to ourselves, our families, and our neighbors to keep the Queen
a top-quality institution.
