Impact of Giving
Gifts for our Tiniest Miracles
Women's & Children's Center
Your generous philanthropic support of The Women’s and Children’s Center at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, makes a difference in the lives of the women and children who are cared for in the Hospital.
Our Women’s and Children’s Services team consists of highly skilled medical professionals committed to providing uncompromising quality healthcare with sensitivity, compassion and excellence. However; all the skilled medical care that we provide can only accomplish so much—state-of the-art medical technology is also needed.
Fortunately, the community has been generous with their philanthropic support so that the Hospital is able to purchase these technologies. The largest source of funding has come through the Foundation’s Annual Wine Tasting event that is held in the spring.
In 2005, Foundation board member and owner of LIQUORAMA Fine Wines and Spirits in Upland, CA, John Solomon had a desire to help the little miracles in the Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) as well as infants that are admitted to the Hospital’s Pediatric Unit.
The Annual Wine Tasting has now grown to become what many consider to be the premier wine tasting event in the Inland Empire. Over the past six years, the Annual Wine Tasting has raised over $220,000 for the two departments.
The net proceeds from the Annual Wine Tasting have been used to fund new incubators for the NICU known as Giraffe Omni Beds, Pediatric Heart Monitors, Pediatric thermometers to take home, and breastfeeding privacy screens that help encourage mothers to breastfeed their newborns.
Philanthropy is critical to our Hospital, especially to our patients and their families in The Women’s and Children’s Center
