St. Elizabeth Foundation

Support the Health of our Community

St. Elizabeth Foundation builds a path between you and the care you depend on. The best healthcare available comes from the hearts of people like you. Generous supporters enable St. Elizabeth Healthcare to provide innovative treatment options through recent expansions such as the Florence Wormald Heart & Vascular Institute and the St. Elizabeth Cancer Center and bring lifesaving screenings closer to home via our mobile health units.

Donor Stories: How Your Giving Impact

A Story of Hope

Joe Koester lived with a heart murmur for 40 years because he was born with a heart defect. Joe’s condition, called bicuspid aortic valve disease (BAVD), caused his heart’s aortic valve to function adequately, but not perfectly.

After performing a yearly sonogram to monitor Joe’s heart, Cardiologist Dr. Kevin Miller with St. Elizabeth Heart & Vascular Institute told Joe that his aortic valve finally needed to be replaced.

Why I Give

When John Domaschko’s father was at St. Elizabeth, one nurse aide made all the difference.
