The El Camino Fund

Unrestricted gifts to the El Camino Fund allow El Camino Hospital to innovate and respond nimbly to emerging opportunities.  They enable the hospital to be among the first to invest in leading edge technologies and medical advances, and to implement newly developing best practices in health care.  They provide the resources that enhance patient care in ways that might otherwise go unmet and they position the hospital to meet the evolving needs of a patient population that is growing increasingly diverse.  By permitting El Camino Hospital to allocate your gift where the need is greatest - purchase state-of-the-art equipment, or create a pioneering health care program - you are ensuring El Camino Hospital has the resources it needs to best serve our community.  Be assured your donation will be allocated carefully and thoughtfully.  Each distribution is made in support of the hospital's strategic priorities, in consultation with hospital leadership and the Foundation Board of Directors, after the project proposal has undergone a rigorous review.
