Novato Community Hospital

20th Anniversary

Ensuring consistently exceptional, patient-centered care for the community

Nearly twenty years ago, Novato Community Hospital (NCH) was built thanks in large part to generous philanthropic support from the community. NCH has since grown to become the hospital of choice for families in Marin County who seek exceptional, patient-centered care close to home. After two decades and serving hundreds of thousands of patients, the campus is in need of updating interior and exterior spaces and modernizing the patient experience.

Building for the Future of Care at Novato Community Hospital

The 20th Anniversary Campaign will ensure that Novato Community Hospital has the resources needed to provide patients with world-class care now and well into the future. Philanthropic support for the campaign will provide funding for improvements that will enhance patient comfort and experience and beautify the most heavily trafficked areas of the campus. Enhancements will include:

  • Advancing technology with Sonifi TV education system in all medical surgical rooms. Sonifi is an interactive education platform that ensures patients are prepared with all of the information they need before leaving the hospital.
  • Improving the patient experience with state-of-the-art ICU and Medical Surgical beds ICU beds that will continuously monitor a patient's heart and respiratory rate and are designed to support early mobility for improved recovery and prevent complications associated with longer hospital stays. Smart beds are equipped with weight-based pressure distribution and head-of-bed angle monitoring to avoid pressure ulcers and pneumonia as well as exit alert capabilities and safety lights to prevent falls. They also feature an ergonomic design to help health care providers avoid injury while moving beds.
  • Beautifying indoor and outdoor spaces, including hospital grounds and picnic areas, the café and staff lounge areas, will ensure a healthcare environment that is relaxing and conducive to healing.

Enhanced Care for a Growing Patient Population

Donor support for the 20th Anniversary Campaign will provide Novato Community Hospital the equipment and facilities needed to continue exceptional care for a growing number of patients, including:

  • Ensuring optimal comfort, safety and recovery for hospitalized patients who are recovering from surgery, experiencing an acute illness, or in need of intensive treatment due to a life-threatening condition
  • Providing patients with the information they need for a full and speedy recovery after discharge
  • Enhancing indoor and outdoor spaces across the Novato Community Hospital campus to improve the patient and visitor experience
