History & Funding

In 1984, Huntington Hospital received a generous bequest from the Margaret Bundy Scott Trust. The Trust agreed to an ambitious proposal to create a safety net for aging well that would fill critical resource gaps and bring fragmented services into "a totally integrated life-care system."

With the Trust providing the crucial support for an extensive planning and development effort, Senior Care Network formally began on December 1, 1984. In the first year, the hospital, its medical staff and the professional services community laid the foundation for a cooperative community network. Core programs supported by public and private funds, cutting-edge projects and planning grants were put in place. Huntington Senior Care Network, one of only a few hospital-based programs of its type, soon developed a local and national reputation for innovation, quality care and aging expertise.

Today the original concept of a "one-call service" that promotes health and planning for longevity, assists with connection to community resources, and enhances the skills of those who provide care is as timely as ever. Reaching thousands of individuals annually, Huntington Senior Care Network remains a model community care program meeting the diverse needs of older adults, adults with disabilities and their families.

Huntington Senior Care Network is a nonprofit program supported by public and private funds, fees and contributions. Funding is augmented through proceeds of the Huntington Collection, the hospital's resale and consignment shop.

Contributions are an important part of our ability to provide needed services. To help support the work of Huntington Hospital Senior Care Network, contact the office of philanthropy at (626) 397-3241.
