“We are extremely grateful to John and Susan for their transformational gift in support of El Camino Hospital and their many endeavors to further enhance the health of our community,” said Jodi Barnard, President of El Camino Hospital Foundation. “As the building is completed, it will be a great honor to formally name the new structure after this respected and well-known family.”
