What We Do
Partner with our community to support the greatest needs of EvergreenHealth.
In the 1960’s, our community envisioned a new hospital to serve our region’s future healthcare needs. Approximately 80,000 residents voted to form a new King County public hospital district and a grassroots effort started to fund a hospital that would be built for the community, by the community. On March 9, 1972, EvergreenHealth first opened its doors, delivering on that community-driven vision for local, family-centered healthcare and service.
EvergreenHealth now serves over 850,000 residents and has grown into its identity: a nationally recognized leader in healthcare with a celebrated culture centered around our commitment to providing the safest, highest quality, most compassionate care to you – our community.
Since the beginning, what’s made EvergreenHealth special is that it’s a true collaboration between a health system and its community. At EvergreenHealth Foundation, we are incredibly privileged to bear witness to that meaningful relationship. For more than three decades, EvergreenHealth Foundation has been the philanthropic partner of thousands of families, foundations and corporations who’ve chosen to invest in our community’s health and well-being.
Our community’s philanthropic support of EvergreenHealth has contributed to the development of a health system that is now recognized as one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals and renowned for its role in setting and sharing best practices with our nation’s healthcare providers at the onset of the pandemic. Together, we’ve invested in what sets us apart: our commitment to clinical excellence, comprehensive care and community well-being.
It is only with your trust, partnership and support that this legacy is possible.
We are so grateful for the ways our community has embraced EvergreenHealth, and we want to say thank you for your part in our journey and for helping us continue to build upon this legacy as we look forward to the next several decades of serving families in our community.
