The Dignity Health Foundation East Valley is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was started as the foundation for Chandler Regional Medical Center (formerly Chandler Regional Hospital) in 1985 so that individuals could participate in the hospital’s mission of improving the health of the community. With the addition of Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, the foundation changed its name from Chandler Regional Hospital Foundation to Dignity Health Foundation East Valley to better represent its expanded responsibility to serve both facilities and the communities of the Southeast Valley. The foundation was established to provide financial support for capital projects, equipment, new medical technologies, improved patient services and medical education, enhanced research, as well as programs and services for children, women, and senior citizens, and the care of uninsured or under-insured families at our community.
Chandler Regional Medical Center, Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, and the community outreach programs managed by Dignity Health in the East Valley, are committed to furthering healing by delivering compassionate, high-quality, affordable health services; serving and advocating for the poor and disenfranchised; and partnering with others in the community to improve quality of life.
The generosity of the communities we serve, and the dedication of our volunteers, helps insure this excellence in patient care, medical education, research, and community outreach.
Our Foundation staff is available to work with you to assure that you are able to focus on what is truly important – making a difference with your charitable gift.
If you have ever admired the grace and beauty of dancers on shows such as “Dancing with the Stars” or wondered if you could BE one of those gracing the dance floor – your opportunity to experience the world of dance first hand is coming this fall with the Foundation’s Dancing with Dignity 2018.
This annual gala is the Foundation’s signature fundraising event benefiting our nationally-acclaimed Post-Stroke programs, such as Stroke Camp. We also support additional programs for patients with brain tumors, Parkinson’s or other neurological impairments.
