About Our Foundation

St. Anthony’s Hospital Foundation was founded as a way for the community to invest in the health care needs of the community. We encourage a lively dialogue with philanthropists on the best ways to improve the health of all we serve including research that leads to improved outcomes, technology that is at the forefront of innovation and services that address the social factors affecting health. The Foundation welcomes intelligent conversation about what matters most and seeks to align the mission of the hospital with funding priorities of donors.

The mission of St. Anthony's Hospital Foundation is to advocate, educate and communicate the value of the hospital to our community.
