Women's Philanthropy

Last Updated 12/4/2014 10:52:50 AM


Hope to Health (H2H) offers a volunteer and philanthropic opportunity for women to support El Camino Hospital. There are two chapters, one in Mountain View and one in Los Gatos. Members are women who care about women’s health issues and believe in the power of philanthropy. They meet regularly to discuss those concerns and determine how their charitable giving can best improve the health of women in their communities through programs on their chapter’s hospital campus. To date the dollars they have raise have helped, among other things, to launch MOMS (an outpatient therapy program for women suffering from postpartum depression), ASPIRE (an outpatient therapy program aimed at preventing teen suicide), underwrite gynecological services for underprivileged women, and to support pilot programs to improve women’s cardiovascular health. For more information, please contact Kirsten Krimsley at 650-940-7154 or email foundation@elcaminohospital.org.

Last Updated Thursday, July 10, 2014 3:55:23 PM


El Camino Hospital Foundation hosted the second annual Norma’s Literary Luncheon on February 6, 2014, a benefit for the Women's Hospital and a memorial tribute to Norma Melchor, who was a steadfast and generous supporter of El Camino Hospital for more than 50 years. Ruth Reichl, bestselling author, restaurant critic and judge on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, was the featured speaker.

Judie Wolken was the luncheon chair and Betsy Dawes was co-chair. Jack Melchor, who underwrote the event and his family were among the 163 guests who attended. Proceeds from the afternoon will be used to purchase fetal monitoring equipment for antepartum moms, special monitoring equipment for Jacuzzi births, and to bolster lactation services.

Plans are already underway for the third annual Norma’s Literary Luncheon, which will be held on February 5, 2015. Author, screenwriter and producer Delia Ephron will be the featured speaker.
