HOPE See How

Our Core Pillars

We are advocates for a compassionate and just society through our actions and our words.

Rooted in the loving ministry of Jesus as healer, we commit ourselves to serving all persons with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable. Our Catholic health ministry is dedicated to spiritually centered, holistic care which sustains and improves the health of individuals and communities.


Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation offers support to patients who are struggling financially by providing essential needs to allow them to heal properly and with dignity.


All persons deserve the best care available delivered through a health care system that is both accessible and exceptional.

“The Foundation scholarship helped me achieve my educational goals of completing my undergraduate degree in Radiologic Technology. I am very thankful for the Foundation at Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford for giving me the tools I needed to succeed. I started out as a patient transporter and was in school for X-ray. Through hard courses and trials in class and work, the Foundation gave me a boost to accelerate through my schooling and receive my degree in Radiology. So, thank you for motivating me to finish my education and pursue the career path I have been hoping for. My job at Saint Thomas Rutherford has opened many opportunities for me that will help me if I choose to go another path.”

Samuel Bates, Radiology Technologist
