St. Joseph Medical Center Foundation

Healthier Together


We care about our community. We know you do too. 

Philanthropy is at the very heart of our mission to promote personal and community health, relieve pain and suffering, and treat each person in a loving and caring way. Your generosity elevates and expands medical programs and services that benefit hundreds of community members each and every day, including vulnerable patients when they need our help the most. Through your generosity, we are healthier together.

Together, with the support of generous community members like you, we provide exceptional medical care to your family, friends and neighbors right here in Northwest Washington, close to home, in familiar and nurturing surroundings.

You can see the strength of your investment in the father who triumphs over a debilitating stroke… the grandmother whose mobility is restored following a joint replacement surgery… the family of the precious newborn who faced life-threatening complications but now truly thrives. Your giving makes these miracles happen every day.

Because of your support, outstanding care is possible for our community.
