Donor & Patient Stories

We're lucky that our donors are committed to making a major difference. While there are many ways to contribute to St. Helena Hospital, quality healthcare cannot exist without major financial support.

Donor Stories:

“I have so much confidence in the hospital. And at our age, this is about the time when things start going wrong. We want the best and we don't want to have to travel far for it—and there it is!”

– Bob Trinchero, Trinchero Family Estates

“I find it personally satisfying to make an impact that will endure—something bigger than just me—it’s one of the most rewarding ways of giving back.”
– Bruce Anderson, M.D.

Patient Stories:

“My cardiologist was Dr. Lies, my surgeon Dr. Jacobson – they not only saved my life, but made me feel so safe and secure and well taken care of. There is no need to travel from our magnificent Napa Valley for the ultimate in world-class care.”
– Mimi DeBlasio, Scarecrow Wine

“I’m self-employed and currently uninsured. Rosa’s attitude made my day; she was so encouraging and helpful. I’m considered high-risk for breast cancer, and therefore, screenings are vital to my preventative care. I’m eternally grateful to the Women’s Center and Auction Napa Valley.”
– Pamela, St. Helena

“Dr. Coon’s an absolute magician. I never dreamed I’d be back swinging a club again so soon.”
– Jackie Mansfield, Seattle

“Had I been in any other ER with ten or twenty other people, I know I wouldn’t have survived.”
– Ken Weeman, St. Helena
