Mission Statement

The mission of the St. Elizabeth Hospital Foundation is to live out the healing ministry of Christ with a special emphasis on those in need. By generating, stewarding and distributing funds, we enhance the quality of our Ascension health system services, programs and other community health initiatives.

Walking proudly in the footsteps of the original four Sisters who founded the hospital in 1899, Ascension St. Elizabeth Hospital celebrates more than a century of caring for its patients and community. Though much has changed, the vision to transform healthcare and provide compassionate care, particularly to those most in need, remains the same. 

Rooted in the loving ministry of Jesus as healer, we commit ourselves to serving all persons with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable.


Our Catholic health ministry is dedicated to spiritually-centered, holistic care which sustains and improves the health of individuals and communities. Ascension St. Elizabeth Hospital remains dedicated to continuing its mission into this century and beyond. And just like the beginning, today, your generosity and support allow us to continue to provide personalized, compassionate care - for all.


Connected to Ascension's national network of expert providers and specialists, we hear so many local stories of hope and healing, supporting compassionate, personalized care close to home. Our Foundation is the heartbeat of our health system and we, together, are investing in the health of our communities.
