The Sequoia Hospital Foundation hosted Cirque du Sequoia, an evening of food and wine for 250 guests at an Atherton estate on June 21. The event raised nearly $225,000 for the redesign, renovation and expansion of the Sequoia Hospital's Birth Center.
The Birth Center averages 133 deliveries per month. Plans include doubling the capacity of the level 2 nursery, adding additional private home-like birthing suites, and expanding nursing and family waiting areas.
The evening honored the late doctors William Kennett and John Hoff, two of Sequoia Hospital's pioneering obstetricians.
