San Juan Medical Foundation: Enhancing the Health and Well-being of Our Community


San Juan Medical Foundation has been enhancing the health and well-being of people in the Four Corners community for nearly 35 years. Founded in 1985 by a group of civic minded citizens who envisioned an organization through which every member of the community could be involved in changing the health of our region, the Foundation continues today to deliver on its mission for the health of future generations.

Through its longstanding partnership with San Juan Regional Medical Center, as well as the many programs administered by the Foundation itself, community members from young children to the elderly have benefitted from the Foundation’s healing presence. In order to improve the health of our community, San Juan Medical Foundation is 100 percent dependent on charitable giving, with funds provided through the generosity of individuals, corporations, service organizations and foundations.
