Advancing Excellence: Touching Lives
Compassionate Treatment. Healing Faith.
“Rooted in God's love, we treat illness and promote wellness for all people.” This simple mission statement has defined the legacy of St. Joseph’s/Candler for more than 200 years. At St. Joseph’s/Candler Foundations, we are committed to providing philanthropic support so that the health system can fulfill its mission.
Charitable resources are necessary to treat illness and promote wellness for all people. It is through the financial investment of your generous gifts that St. Joseph’s/Candler continues to provide unparalleled excellence in a compassionate and healing environment.
Building on our strengths, while preparing to face the future, St. Joseph’s/Candler has developed a strategy which ensures continued access to clinical services and programs, while ensuring the financial strength of our system for the continued availability of healthcare services across the many communities we serve.
We successfully completed Phase I of our current initiative, Advancing Excellence: Touching Lives, by raising $5.1 million in two years. Read more about that here. Phase II just began and includes projects to enhance the patient experience by supporting the following areas of St. Joseph’s/Candler:
