Frosts Support Access to Health Care Education and Research

French Hospital Medical Center Foundation

Copeland Health Education Pavilion

Long-time San Luis Obispo County residents, Bill and Linda Frost, are committed to improving the lives of others in their community. They recently made a generous $1 million gift to support the Copeland Health Education Pavilion at French Hospital Medical Center (FHMC).

The Copeland family donated the building to French Hospital Medical Center, but additional funds were needed to complete the interior. This recent gift from Bill and Linda Frost will specifically help support the Pavilion’s infrastructure, technologies, and training facilities.

The Copeland Health Education Pavilion at FHMC will house cutting edge scientific health care research in partnership with Cal Poly, medical training for health care professionals, community health education with a focus on wellness, and disease prevention. Strong emphasis will be placed on outreach and prevention for the low-income and underserved in our community.

Included in the Pavilion will be the Flanagan Simulation Learning Center with high-tech simulation manikins for virtual learning. It will also encompass a large auditorium, classrooms, conference rooms, research facilities, and education-related offices.

The educational resources provided in the Pavilion will be offered at no charge to the community. The 18,000 square foot building is expected to be completed by October 2015.

The FHMC Foundation continues to seek additional funding to complete the Copeland Health Education Pavilion.
