San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Gifts $650,000
St. Bernardine Medical Center Foundation received a $650,000 grant from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians towards the purchase and establishment of the da Vinci Surgical System and robotic program. The $650,000 donation will also support the training and establishment of the system's robotic program.
Unlike other surgical equipment, the da Vinci is not limited to one surgical team. Rather, the system will be utilized in a wide array of surgical procedures, from urology and gynocology to thoracic and general as it expands the surgeon's capabilities and offers a minimally invasive option for patients undergoing major surgery.
"The people of San Manuel are grateful for the long history of quality healthcare services that St. Bernardine Medical Center has provided in the region, " said San Manuel Chairperson Carla Rodriguez. "The da Vinci Surgical System will enhance their capacity, allowing them to do even more in service to the people of our region. We are pleased to assist as they expand on their proven capabilities."
The tribe has continued to provide critical funding for technilogical advancement that supports St. Bernardine's mission to deliver high quality, affordable health services. "San Manuel is a generous supporter of St. Bernardine," said Steve Barron, Dignity Health senior vice president, Southern California East and president, St. Bernardine Medical Center. "We deeply appreciate their investment in our efforts to continue to provide an exceptional standard of care to the communities we serve," added Barron.
