In the Footsteps of Excellence

Endowing the Future of Medical Education


Your doctor is important to you. Because Cottage is a teaching hospital, we're always seeking the best and brightest so that we can continue to train the high caliber of physicians you've come to trust.


The medical faculty and attending physicians of our Graduate Medical Education Program pass knowledge gained over decades of experience to our residents in surgery, internal medicine and radiology; the latest cutting-edge medical and technical information is at their fingertips in our outstanding medical library.


We're the only community hospital between LA and the Bay area offering this type of graduate medical education. And, with the pool of physicians in this country getting smaller, we can't risk losing the ability to provide it. But it's expensive.


Help us keep the best teachers teaching the best students with the best information so that the new Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital is the best option for you and yours, now and in the future.



Gifts may be made in a variety of forms including cash, securities, real estate, and bequests by will.


You may make a donation online, over the phone, or by mail. All gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible.


The gift of health is priceless. Please help Cottage in our continuing efforts to keep our community healthy and safe.
