Choosing to Care

Nursing Excellence


An ambitious workforce that welcomes medical and technological advances and evidence-based practice, Cottage's nursing teams strive for excellence in all arenas, and are consistently recognized at the regional, state and national levels for the supportive and collaborative manner in which they deliver quality health care to patients.


In pursuit of its commitment to the advances of 21st century nursing practice, Cottage has embarked on a path to strengthen and expand its educational partnerships and innovative learning opportunities. We're partnering with state and city colleges and using new technology that enables nurses to practice responses and procedures before they get to the bedside. Nurses are trained for careers across the spectrum of more than 60 specialties in adult and pediatric medicine. Just as it has been for over a century, a highly skilled nursing workforce continues to
be at the forefront of delivering quality care.


With the high cost of living in our community, attracting nurses to spend their careers in Santa Barbara is a financial challenge that Cottage can meet only with your support.


Gifts may be made in a variety of forms including cash, securities, real estate, and bequests by will.


You may make a donation online, over the phone, or by mail. All gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible.


The gift of health is priceless. Please help Cottage in our continuing efforts to keep our community healthy and safe.

Nurses provide more bedside care and spend more time with patients than anyone else working in the hospital. We want to continue employing the best of the best.
