AsanteForward is our most ambitious and significant philanthropic effort to date, with a goal of at least $50 million. The purpose of the campaign is to transform the quality and scope of health care available in Asante’s nine-county region, providing residents with exceptional medical care in our own community.

Campaign Initiatives

At the core of the AsanteForward campaign are five specific initiatives including behavioral health, cancer care, expanded emergency services and a new patient pavilion to house several areas of care, including women’s and children’s health, cardiac care, critical care and advanced surgical services.

Asante Cancer Care

With an intense focus on the experience of the patient and families, Asante will redefine compassionate care, building the new Heimann Cancer Center and expanding Spears Cancer Center — providing the most advanced cancer care in our region.

Women’s & Children’s Hospital

Asante is committed to meeting the unique needs of women’s and children’s health by offering a full spectrum of services. The top two floors of the Patient Pavilion will be a dedicated hospital-within-a-hospital, housing labor and delivery, a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), a pediatric department and outpatient infusion services for children, among other specialized services.

Cardiac Care

Asante’s heart and vascular program is nationally recognized for providing outstanding cardiac care. State-of-the-art facilities give patients throughout Southern Oregon access to dedicated and experienced cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons. This initiative will ensure our growing population continues to receive the best cardiac services with renovated surgical suites and increased access.

Advanced Surgical Services

The most advanced surgical services are dependent upon state-of-the-art facilities, featuring the latest equipment and highly-trained surgeons. With your support, Asante will implement additional operating rooms with the latest technology to continue providing our community with the best possible access and surgical outcomes.

Age-Friendly Care at
Asante Ashland Community Hospital

Almost 25% of residents in Southern Oregon are retired and over 65. As our older population grows, there will be a significant increase in the demand for health care services. Asante is committed to meeting the unique needs of older adults in Southern Oregon by creating an Age-Friendly Health System at Asante Ashland. 

Critical Care

Critical care outcomes are enhanced by the quality of both the physicians and facilities as key treatment is delivered. Asante is well poised to provide the best possible care for our community.

Behavioral Health

Access to quality mental health care and support is a crucial component to overall good health. Our community has the opportunity to build on the strong foundation already set by local donors. The Behavioral Health facet of AsanteForward will introduce a new model of care, support community partnerships and implement renovations to ensure that Asante continues to comfort, accommodate and treat patients in crisis.

Asante Three Rivers Medical Center Emergency Department

With a nearly 50 percent increase in patient volume over the past 18 years – and sustained growth expected each year – there’s an urgent need to expand and modernize the Asante Three Rivers Emergency Department in Josephine County. This project will provide an immediate and positive impact on emergency care in our community.
