Established in 1986, the foundation has become a vital part of our health care community.


The Meeting Place

The Meeting Place is an ambitious project to convert 8,000 sq ft of the hospital's existing lower level into flexible community rooms. The overall goal of this project is to create a gathering place that can serve community groups, local businesses, nonprofits, families, patients, and hospital staff.  Learn more »

Art for the Soul

Skyline Foundation is collaborating with the Columbia Gorge Arts-in-Education program to reach out to our community through art. The Art for the Soul project is our way to get out into the hearts — and hands — of the community because we all know, health starts way before a trip to the hospital.  Learn more »
