1 month remains to reach our goal of $1 million Capital Campaign

Through the capital campaign started in October 2016, a total of $990,000 of the $1 million goal has been raised to achieve the renovations and technology purchases. We thank our donors for helping us get this far, and invite those who have not yet made a donation to be a part of this exciting and rare opportunity to make significant enhancements to your St. Joseph’s Hospital.  Those interested in contributing to the campaign can do so by calling Lisa Smith at 618-526-5698. Community Letter

Reaching out to meet the needs of our community has been a concern of HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital for more than 100 years. For example, although some patients have financial means to cover their treatment costs, many do not, and donations to the Foundation help the Hospital meet the cost of community care. Contributions are also used to purchase life-saving equipment, support programs and services for patients and their families, and provide healthcare-related academic scholarships for our colleagues.

The HSHS St. Joseph's Foundation is a division of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis, Inc. The Hospital Sisters of St. Francis Foundation, Inc., is a nonprofit organization chartered in the State of Illinois and is exempt from income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, contributions to the Foundation qualify as charitable contributions to the fullest extent of current laws.

Donations to the Hospital in the form of a check can be made out to HSHS St. Joseph's Foundation and mailed to the following address: HSHS St. Joseph's Foundation, 9515 Holy Cross Lane, Breese, IL 62230.
