Seton Medical Center
Through Seton Medical Center Society and Foundation, donors are integral in providing resourses and services for our patients, their families, and staff.
Our hospital is undergoing an exciting revitalization! While we’re investing in new equipment, facilities and top-notch physicians and nurses, our patients will receive the same care and kindness they’ve come to expect from Seton Medical Center and Seton Coastside.
As we move forward Together in Health, Seton Medical Center Foundation will carry on our long tradition of investing in the health and well-being of our communities through philanthropy.
In addition to raising funds for important life-saving technology, we are excited to support and reconnect with our local communities. From health fairs and screenings to wellness education, we look forward to strengthening our ties with the communities we serve.
Please join us in our work to provide safe, compassionate care to the communities we serve by making a donation today. Thank you for your partnership as we invest in the future!

Recent Programs Made Possible by Generous Gifts to the Foundation
State-of-the-Art Catherization Lab
Seton’s Cardiology Department upgraded and installed a state-of-the-art cardiac catherization lab. Our many heart patients will benefit from the most up-to-date in life-saving catherization procedures.
The Foundation recently funded a refurbishing of the Medical Center’s main lobby area. Our fresh, clean and inviting lobby now offers a more welcoming environment for our patients and families.
Our hospital charity care funds help cover the costs of medical care for uninsured patients who cannot afford to pay for treatment and who don’t qualify for other reimbursement programs.
