The Lompoc Hospital District Foundation (simply known as The Foundation) dedicates itself to the belief that each person in the Lompoc Valley must have convenient access to medical facilities close to home. These facilities must be able to provide emergency, preventative, curative and rehabilitative healthcare.
We are fortunate to have the services and programs provided by Lompoc Valley Medical Center. These facilities provide quality healthcare in a caring environment close to our family and friends. Committed to providing state of the art care, Lompoc Valley Medical Center ensures that affordable and quality services are accessible to all residents.
The Foundation’s membership is now well over 3,500 people, with a Foundation Board of Trustees with almost 100 members.

The Foundation is a completely autonomous nonprofit organization founded on September 12, 1990. Formed by a group of concerned citizens, our basic mission is two-fold. First, we provide current healthcare news and information to the citizens of Lompoc. Second, we work with Lompoc Valley Medical Center to develop new healthcare services and facilities and through voluntary philanthropy raise funds for their operation.
