For more than 20 years, the Barton Foundation has been committed to improving the health of the South Lake Tahoe area and to moving Barton Health into the future. Since 1990, the Foundation has provided more than $3.17 million for purchases of equipment, direct patient care, caregiver training, and building improvements. The Barton Foundation is led by a group of community volunteers, serving 3-year terms as members of the Board of Trustees. This board oversees the direction of the Foundation, raises funds, evaluates and approves projects, and provides overall policy leadership and counsel.
Besides helping to fund annual hospital equipment and service needs at Barton Health, the Barton Foundation has taken on specific campaigns over the years: funding such projects as the Barton Community Clinic, Healing Design, and the Level III Trauma Center. In addition, the Foundation supports organizations that target the community’s unmet healthcare needs through their Barton Health Grants program. The Barton Foundation partners with community leaders, individuals, and businesses to help Barton Health change and save lives.
