Helping Armenia at a Critical Time

So many of our associates and neighbors have ties to Armenia; we recognize the heartbreaking conflict in the region is personal to you. We’re deeply committed to Armenia through our annual medical mission to the region. This week, we would have been there were it not for the COVID pandemic.

The people of Armenia need our help. Please join us in making a contribution which will help us purchase and send surgical, medical, trauma and burn supplies and medications to the affected region. Time is of the essence; we need to raise funds this week to deliver these supplies and resources as quickly as possible. This is a time to give generously because lives are at stake.

Looking Beyond COVID-19

The last few months have been a challenging time for all of us. As an organization, we are navigating uncharted waters as we care for our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. As individuals, we share in the uncertainty of continuing lockdown, economic insecurity and physical distancing.

One thing is becoming clear, however, as we remain on this journey: COVID-19 is here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. And although we continue to seek innovative and safe ways to care for our patients and their families during the pandemic, we also feel in our hearts that the time has come to move forward with our needs for the future. After all, in the midst of COVID-19, our community is still struggling with cancer. They are still facing heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and all the chronic and acute illnesses that still plague our society.

Although COVID-19 is part of our lives for now, I’m still inspired. I’m inspired by our 115-year legacy of healing. I’m inspired by the way our physicians, nurses and staff continue to stand strong as a beacon of hope during a worldwide pandemic. And I’m inspired by the way we continue to seek ways to better care for our community beyond COVID-19.

As we begin to look to the future of Adventist Health Glendale, we invite you on this new adventure with us, to look at our new world with hope and positivity, to connect with us in new and different ways, and work with us for a better, healthier community. Your support is needed, now more than ever, to help us continue to fight for the health of our beloved community.

In the coming weeks and months, we will be providing you with new opportunities to give, to invest in technology and services that will benefit our community for many years to come. So stay tuned…the future is exciting, different—and still inspiring!
