The Oak Society is composed of caring individuals who ensure the quality of care provided at Glendale Adventist Medical Center by building an endowment for the future, providing support for current and future generations and by supporting special projects and services within the medical center.
For more than 100 years, GAMC has stood like a mighty oak with a deep-rooted commitment to providing quality care and personalized service. The Oak Society's motto, "While we live we grow," speaks to the medical center's continuing efforts to grow and adapt to ever-changing healthcare needs.
Financial assistance provided by the Oak Society through annual membership dues and private donations is directly responsible for contributing to the support of many special projects and services within the medical center.
Since 2005, Oak Society annual contributions have been directed toward the Oak Society Endowment Fund. This fund will provide ongoing support for equipment and/or programs.
