All donations stay local and support the hospital, program or initiative of your choice. Outlined below are a few priorities your contributions can help achieve at Ascension River District Hospital. These initiatives play an integral role in our ability to continue providing the best care for our patients and their families.

Emergency Center (EC)

To continue to satisfy our community needs, Ascension River District Hospital needs to expand and renovate the Emergency Center. The newly renovated EC will create the very best environment in comfort, safety, and modern accommodations for patients requiring emergent care in the community.

The expansion and renovation project will include:

  • A separate ambulance entrance to facilitate the immediate assessment of patients by placing them directly in the clinical area, away from the triage and patient waiting area
  • A dedicated emergent care walk-in entrance
  • Expansion of the waiting and registration areas
  • Enhancements to the treatment areas, creating a more modern and efficient space to care for patients
  • New furnishings

Cancer Care 

  • Purchase state-of-the-art equipment for improved diagnostics, treatment and care
  • Assist patients experiencing cancer-related financial distress through bill pay assistance, so they can focus on their health and healing
  • Create endowment funds designed to ensure sustainability of various patient programs/services and/or improve the patient experience
