As a non-profit hospital, we rely on generous contributions from people just like you to help us to achieve our mission. Whether it entails welcoming our youngest patients as they open their eyes to a new world, offering the most technologically advanced screening equipment, or monitoring crucial vital signs and sleep patterns, you can be assured that donations to St. Elizabeth's Foundation are making a difference.
Many positive investments in equipment and our facility are possible through the gracious donations of both the public and our own colleagues. One such investment made to better serve our patients, was the purchase of a second 3D Mammography Unit with funds donated by the HSHS St. Elizabeth's Hospital Foundation.
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among American women. About one in eight (12%) women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. HSHS St. Elizabeth's Hospital continues to invest in the latest technologies to encourage early detection through annual mammograms.
