Did You Know?

  • Women are the main household health care decision makers
  • Over 1,160 babies were born in our Women & Families unit on the St. Elizabeth Hospital campus during our last fiscal year, ending June of 2020.

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."
