Learn more about initiatives and fundraising opportunities offered by the Barton Health Foundation.

Heart Safe Community

The Heart Safe Community program, sponsored by the Barton Health Foundation, is a community-wide effort aimed at educating citizens on the dangers of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). The Heart Safe Community program is based on strategic placement of and easy access to automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in public gathering spots throughout the South shore of Lake Tahoe.

Grateful Patient and Family Program

Occasionally, patients and their families who receive exceptional care at Barton Health ask how they can say “Thank You” to the providers who made a difference.  The Barton Health Foundation’s Grateful Patient and Family program is a meaningful way to show your appreciation and recognize exceptional care.  Whether you choose to honor an individual Barton Health physician, nurse, team member, or even a specific department that made a significant difference in your care, your gift is a welcome expression of gratitude.

Mammogram Initiative

Continuing its mission of advancing local healthcare through philanthropy, the Barton Health Foundation has announced a fundraising initiative aimed at improved breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

All funds raised will go toward the advancement of Barton’s 3D Breast Screening program, which will soon include Contrast Enhanced Mammography, a technique that uses an intravenous contrast agent that shows new or unusual blood flow patterns that develop when cancers grow, along with 3D-Guided Biopsy, a minimally invasive procedure to gather tissue samples from a breast abnormality.
