St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation

About Us
St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation was incorporated in 1984 for the sole purpose of raising charitable dollars for St. Joseph's Hospital. The Foundation supports the Hospital's mission by raising funds from hundreds of community partners that share our belief that St. Joseph's makes a difference in the lives of thousands of Southern Tier families. In 2008 the Foundation contributed more than $600,000 to the Hospital to purchase new technology, sponsor patient and staff education and to underwrite charity care.

Over the last decade the Foundation's support has played a vital role in the expansion of the hospital's skilled nursing unit, upgrade of the hospital's main computer system and the relocation of the Interfaith Chapel. The Foundation has, since 2001, contributed about one million dollars to the St. Joseph's Hospital Financial Assistance Program. Also known as charity care, this program assists the "working poor" with the cost of their medical care.

Community outreach is also a part of the Foundation's mission. Health education programs like the Betts F. Komer seminars provide vital information to residents on a variety of topics. The Foundation also sponsors a prescription assistance program, the Palmer Cancer Fund that helps families with costs associated with a cancer diagnosis and the Alberta Swartwood Health Education Fund. Annually, our investment in these type of community services top $30,000.
