Current Campaign – Compassion Now. Compassion Forever.

A Message from the Chairman

From the beginning, St. Peter’s Hospital has existed for one reason: to serve the health needs of our community, current and future, with care and compassion. Our talented physicians, nurses, and patient care staff uphold this mission every day as they carry on the wonderful legacy of the Religious Sisters of Mercy. In the Campaign for St. Peter’s Hospital, our donors have the opportunity to uphold this mission as well.

Your generosity will give us unprecedented opportunities to save lives, lessen suffering, and improve quality of life. Enhancements to critical programs such as oncology, cardiac, vascular, women’s and children’s health, surgical services and mission services will thrive through this annual appeal. St. Peter’s Hospital leads the way in these vital programs; your gift will help us maintain that leadership in world-class, compassionate health care— the type of care everyone desires in their time of need.

On behalf of all those served by this outstanding organization, I thank you in advance for your generous support.
