The mission of the Stanislaus Health Foundation of Stanislaus County is to provide funding and support to the Health Services Agency and the Valley Family Medicine Residency Program through healthcare scholarships, preventative programs, and equipment for quality patient care.
The Stanislaus County Health Services Agency Foundation (Stanislaus Health Foundation) was formed in 1975, achieving non-profit 501 (c) (3) status in 1982. The Stanislaus Health Foundation was originally created to support the work of the Stanislaus County Scenic General Hospital and the Stanislaus Family Medicine Residency Program (Residency Program).
One of our most important resources was given to the Stanislaus Health Foundation in 1993 and the Foundation was named as the administrator of the Richard D. Husband, M.D. Educational Trust, established by Mrs. Dorothy Husband. Dr. Richard D. Husband created the Stanislaus County Residency Program in 1932 and today the program as a Family Medicine Residency continues to be the leading physician resource for recruiting physicians to Stanislaus County. The Trust’s purpose is to provide medical educational funding through annual scholarships for the Stanislaus Family Medicine Residency Program, HSA staff and area health care students. Each year over $11,000 is awarded in scholarships and stipends through the Trust. Read more about Dr. Husband.
