The mission of CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.
For over 100 years, charitable support from the community has made an incredible impact on both CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital and local families. Because of this community’s generous support, the Hospital has made significant strides in the medical technology and essential healthcare services provided to this region, including improving pediatric medical care services and health education opportunities through the nationally recognized Children’s Miracle Network program.
Why We Do What We Do
The CHRISTUS St. Patrick Foundation was developed in 2005 to oversee the philanthropic efforts of the Hospital in response to the desires of patients, their families and the community to donate to the Hospital to assist us in providing exemplary health care services to the region.
What We Do
The Foundation partners with area families, individuals and businesses to connect our community outreach missions together to create exemplary healthcare. This provides an opportunity for the community to give to an area of the Hospital, through the CHRISTUS St. Patrick Foundation, where the donor wants to make the most impact. Areas of support through the philanthropy efforts include the Regional Cancer Center, capital needs, Children’s Miracle Network, educational programs, heart health, mental health, and prevention and wellness programs.
The Foundation oversees all philanthropic efforts of the Hospital. That includes:
- major gift fundraising
- annual fundraisers
- special events
- capital campaigns and
- planned giving programs
It is governed by a board of directors, who represent the cultural diversity and values of southwest Louisiana.
