HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital treats all people, regardless of their ability to pay. Your charitable donations help us go above and beyond in treating our patients, their families and other visitors who come through our hospital doors. Charitable donations also make up for the shortfalls of Medicaid and Medicare payments, and provides care for many patients who have no insurance or are underinsured. There is no donation too big or too small – and all gifts are valued for the difference they make in the life of another.

Since the Foundation was established in 1986, gifts from the community have made possible projects like the Friends Van, the new St. Joseph’s Hospital, technology for cancer and women’s health, as well as cardiac care, and numerous other pieces of equipment vital to patient care.
