Circle of Excellence

Circle of Excellence Group Shot

The Circle of Excellence is a community of generous donors who consistently support and sustain PIH Health by giving annual gifts – totaling a minimum of $1,000 – to ensure that PIH Health provides the highest quality healthcare for our communities.

Membership begins by giving $85 a month (or $250 a quarter or $1,000 annually).

Higher levels of membership are recognized at $2,500, $5,000, $10,000 and $25,000+.


Although supporting the mission of PIH Health is the most important reward of membership, we are pleased to extend special courtesies as our thanks for your generosity. Some examples include:

  • Gatherings with other members, featuring exclusive updates by hospital leadership, medical briefings by physicians, and other behind-the-scenes access
  • Recognition in donor listings as a PIH Health Foundation Circle of Excellence member
  • Complimentary estate planning and review sessions with Thompson & Associates (available to all friends of PIH Health Foundation)
  • Discounts at PIH Health Gift Shops
  • Discounts at PIH Health Eye Care Centers
  • A membership memento

Circle Member Gatherings

PIH Health Foundation Circle of Excellence members joined together for a live virtual gathering to receive an update on what PIH Health has learned about COVID-19 and how we responded as an organization. James R. West, President & CEO of PIH Health, welcomed and thanked Circle of Excellence members for their continued support during this challenging year and gave a special welcome to our new members from PIH Health Good Samaritan Hospital. Phillip J. Richardson MD, Vice President of Medical Affairs & Surgical Services at PIH Health Whittier Hospital, who has been a leader on COVID-19 through this pandemic, provided an insightful presentation on the disease and answered live questions from attendees. We want to thank our speakers and guests for their ongoing commitment and support to PIH Health, which allows us to continue to provide excellent care to the communities that we serve.
