Support Access to Care in Watsonville

Pajaro Valley Healthcare District - Watsonville Community Hospital Fund

About the Fund

Thanks to Driscoll's Inc, individual donors have the chance to make a significant impact in the campaign to purchase and run Watsonville Community Hospital (WCH)!
Through May 31st, they are matching donations up to $1.75 million to the Pajaro Valley Healthcare District Project through a fund held here at the Community Foundation.

Dr. Carmin Powell, Chair of the Pediatrics Department at WCH and founding member of Rise Together (pictured 2nd from right) says the fact that “community” is in the name of the hospital means a lot. Doctors, nurses, and staff live locally and receive care there themselves and patients are kind, thoughtful, and deeply appreciative of the care provided.

“We’re a safety net hospital and serve everyone, county wide–from Ben Lomond, Santa Cruz, and the Pajaro Valley–regardless of ability to pay. This transition gives us an incredible opportunity to come back to and strengthen these core values.”
