Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation 

Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation has a proud tradition of meaningfully enhancing health care for our community in partnership with Woodland Healthcare Foundation.

The Tribe’s most recent support includes the generous capstone gift from its Doyuti T’uhkama Partnership to complete the Foundation’s ambitious $3 million Advanced Imaging and Surgical Services Campaign. This enabled the hospital to purchase a new Nuclear Medicine Camera and to renovate the room that houses it. The new camera is making a meaningful difference in the lives of patients affected by cancer, bone disorders, gall bladder disease, heart disease, Parkinson’s disease and other conditions. It is used to identify and track the progress of these diseases and inform treatment decisions. The new camera produces higher quality images, is significantly faster and can accommodate patients with limited mobility, making this valuable imaging service available to those in particularly delicate health. 

The latest generous gift from the Yocha Dehe Community Fund made it possible to provide a new state-of-the-art GE Coro Metrics fetal monitor system within the Family Birth Center. This amazing technology improves the birthing experience and ensures the best possible outcomes for mothers and newborns at Woodland Memorial Hospital. These smaller monitors have better visuals, wireless capability to allow mothers to walk and move around, and enhanced technological abilities to enable nurses to track the labor progress of patients across the center from each of the eight birthing suites. 

“We are deeply humbled and gratified to see the difference we can make as partners in peoples’ lives,” said Tribal Chairman Anthony Roberts. “Yocha Dehe is proud to contribute to the health and well-being of our community.” 

“On behalf of Woodland Healthcare Foundation, I’d like to express our appreciation for the strong partnership we have formed with Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation,” said Kevin Duggan, vice president of philanthropy for Woodland Healthcare Foundation. “We are honored the Tribe has entrusted us to carry out its philanthropic vision in the community and it is gratifying to see how much our families, friends and neighbors are benefitting from this amazing generosity.”
