$1.47 million in Community Grants
We are proud to have served the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valley residents for 58years. As a non-profit community hospital, we honor our mission by giving back to the community, especially to those who are underserved and uninsured or underinsured.
Each year, Northridge Hospital participates in the Dignity Health Community Grant Program, which focuses on supporting nonprofit community organizations whose mission is to provide access to healthcare services for underserved populations. This year we were proud to award eight grants - totaling $190,794. For the last twelve years of the Community Grants Program, we are proud to say that we have awarded more than $1.47 million in community grants to 78 non-profit groups.
