What We Do


Since 1961, ValleyCare Charitable Foundation has worked with our Tri-Valley neighbors to build a healthcare system that directly reflects their growing and changing needs. Our efforts continue to fund pioneering programs, including cutting-edge cancer services, state-of-the-art equipment and technology for the Emergency Department and Cardiac Surgery, financial assistance for pulmonary and cardiac rehab patients, and more.

It started as a grassroots movement. At the time, the Tri-Valley was a small farming community and residents needing medical care faced a long trip to the nearest hospital. People began going door to door, raising money to build a hospital close to home, and the community support grew from there. Neighbors looking out for neighbors, their generosity ensuring the health of the region, a spirit that continues today.

In 2015, our Hospital affiliated with Stanford to become Stanford Health Care — ValleyCare, adding globally renowned expertise to our robust local offerings. The Hospital remains a nonprofit, reliant on private donations. Our goal is to foster and protect the lifeline between the people of the Tri-Valley and the compassionate, personalized, and high-quality medical services that enhance the greater community.

We work harder, knowing that every contribution could literally be a lifesaver.
