Funding Initiative:
Needs of the Poor & Underserved

Serving our mission, daily

As a Catholic, faith-based healthcare organization, our mission of serving the poor and underserved in our community differentiates us as a care provider. This has been, and will always be, at the core of who we are.

In fiscal year 2015, $1,653,719 in charity care has been provided to families in our communities through St. Elizabeth Hospital, Calumet Medical Center, Mercy Medical Center and Affinity Medical Group Clinics.

Your donations provide necessary transportation to and from appointments when it otherwise wouldn't be possible. Your donations provide necessary medication to help manage conditions for individuals who otherwise couldn't afford it.

Your donations recently supported an 80 year old woman in need of a diabetic eye exam and unable to afford it. When our patient financial counselor shared that she could receive her exam thanks to your generous donor support, she said, simply and repeatedly:

"You saved my life."
