In addition to larger capital projects, St. Mary’s General Hospital relies upon the Foundation to provide roughly $5+ million each year to cover costs related to ongoing replacement and enhancement of standard equipment, which is not covered by Government funding.

Over the past 10 years we have transferred over $50 million to the hospital, enabling innovative patient-centered care, delivered with compassion and respect.

Let’s make sure that lifesaving care is here when you need it.
