Why Giving Matters

When you make a gift to the French Hospital Medical Center Foundation, you touch the lives of so many in our community - our friends, families and neighbors. Thanks to our supporters, donors and patients, we continue to move toward our goal of providing local access to compassionate, leading health care, right here in San Luis Obispo. The success we've made together in attaining this goal is reflected in being once again named as a Top 100 Hospital nationally by Truven Health Analytics.

As a not-for-profit hospital, we know that our community and donors are the reason we can help families and individuals thrive in good health. Therefore, we are delighted to share stories from donors and patients with you, stories that show how gifts to the French Hospital Medical Center Foundation can touch the lives of others.
