From the Chair
With the arrival of summer and the long-awaited opening of The Center for Cancer
Prevention and Treatment at St. Joseph Hospital, we have much to celebrate … and still
more work to do. As I begin my term as the chair of the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation
Board, I am excited to be a part of this dynamic group that helps ensure that St. Joseph
Hospital continues to provide the highest quality healthcare services to the community.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our
outgoing chairman, Warren Johnston, M.D., for his
leadership and vision over the past years. Seeing the
completion of this center must be deeply gratifying to
him, as it is to all of us.

Successful Challenge Grant

In January 2008, The Karl Kirchgessner Foundation invited
St. Joseph Hospital to submit a challenge grant proposal on behalf of
Puente a La Salud’s Mobile Community Vision Clinic. To be eligible for a
grant of up to $50,000, the hospital had to raise at least $50,000 from
other sources by April 30.
Thanks to many generous individual donors, The Annenberg Foundation, and Wal-Mart, we
raised $118,000. These funds will help Puente continue its vision-saving eye care for low-in- Patient eye exam aboard

support of individuals, 134 of whom made gifts during the challenge period. The Kirchgessner
Foundation rewarded this generosity with a $15,000 grant.
Historically, hospital community clinics have been largely dependent on funds from hospital
revenue and grants, however the support of individuals is essential to ensuring that Puente can
continue to save the eyesight of some of the most vulnerable people in the county.
