As a nonprofit, faith-based hospital, donations help give patients the very best care by funding new equipment and technology, improving patient care areas, training our health care professionals and ensuring all of our patients receive exceptional compassionate health care. Our giving priorities are aligned with the strategic goals of St. Anthony, ensuring that monies donated to St. Anthony Foundation are used to support critical medical services. Our current giving priorities are:
Area of Greatest Need- Funds provide St. Anthony the flexibility to support programs and services most needed.
Campus Development– Donations help fund new construction and improvements for patient care including the new Saints Pavilion that will house an emergency department, additional trauma rooms, critical and acute care units and patient rooms to care for our growing number of critically ill patients.
Cancer Care: Donations enable St. Anthony to continue its leadership in cancer care through the Frank C. Love Cancer Institute. The Tree of Life Fund provides comforts, medications and other assistance to cancer patients.
Equipment and Technology: Funds help purchase critically needed equipment and new technology to continue to provide the highest quality care and enhance clinical outcomes for our patients.
Cardiac Care: Donations will enable St. Anthony’s Heart and Vascular Institute to continue its leadership in cardiac and vascular care, including the acquisition of advanced technology and patient services.
Orthopedics: Contributions will enable Bone and Joint Hospital at St. Anthony to continue its leadership in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of arthritic, orthopedic and spinal bone conditions, including state-of-the-art imaging services and minimally invasive knee and hip replacement surgery.
Since the Foundation’s purpose is to raise friends and funds to benefit our Hospitals’ patient care, our programs are fundraising programs.
In 2004, St. Anthony established a ten-year 2014 Strategic Vision to transform the Hospital’s facilities, image, surroundings and philosophy. Assisted by donations from the Foundation, results to date include the transformation of the St. Anthony campus, addition of more state-of the art technology, revitalization of our surrounding neighborhood, MidTown, engagement and partnerships with our medical staff and high satisfaction from our physicians, employees and patients. With an every changing and challenging healthcare environment, donations to the Foundation will continue to be a vital component to meeting today’s and tomorrow’s health care needs.
