Gifts to John Muir Health Foundation make a difference in many community members’ lives. Your gift may support the purchase of lifesaving medical equipment or enable the continued availability of special programs and services that support the health of our community.
Cardiac Rhythm Center
Gifts to John Muir Health Foundation supported the creation of this specialized suite at John Muir Medical Center-Walnut Creek Campus. It includes the most sophisticated equipment and computer software currently available for the effective diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. Virtually everything needed to provide the best outcomes for patients who have cardiac rhythm diseases is now available in one place.
This specially designed suite lets doctors see all of the body’s vessels very clearly, allowing for better diagnosis of impending strokes, improved treatment of strokes and aneurysms, and more precise carotid artery stenting. Philanthropic contributions funded the development of the suite.
The Neurosciences Institute is a comprehensive resource for the treatment of brain and spine injuries, stroke, dementia, and tumors. It brings together clinical experts in neurosurgery, neurology, neuro-interventional radiology, radiation therapy, neurophyscology, and physiatry.
The institute is nationally certified as a Primary Stroke Center. It also includes the Stereotactic Radiosurgery System. Novalis, a non-invasive system designed to treat otherwise inoperable tumors, was purchased entirely through the contributions of generous donors to the John Muir Health Foundation.
Lung and Esophageal Cancer Treatment
Thanks to donors to the John Muir Health Foundation, John Muir Health is able to provide a breakthrough diagnostic tool called the EBUS (Ultrasonic Bronchofibervideoscope). The EBUS is a very efficient and accurate method for diagnosing lung cancer and esophageal cancer.
da Vinci Robotic Surgical System
Generous donors to John Muir Health Foundation made possible the purchase of this revolutionary surgical technology at both the Concord and Walnut Creek campuses. It allows surgeons to operate from a remote console using robotic arms, tiny instruments, and the smallest of incisions. Surgeons can perform minimally invasive procedures in previously inaccessible areas of the body, dramatically shortenening recovery times.
