Compassion for Struggling Patients
The Foundation offers an extra measure of support to patients who are struggling financially providing essential needs allowing them to heal properly and with dignity. Once a patient in need leaves one of our medical facilities, they do not leave our care.
Healing at Home:
The Foundation offers direct assistance to patients with urgent needs not covered by health insurance or for those with no insurance at all. Once identified by a Saint Thomas Rutherford social worker, the Foundation aids patients in healing at home through medical equipment (from walkers to personal heart defibrillators), dental care or IV antibiotics.
Dispensary of Hope:
Ensuring all patients have the medicines they need is vital to our mission. Donations to Dispensary of Hope provide medications for thousands of underinsured or uninsured patients each year.
Family Care Centers:
The Saint Thomas Rutherford health clinics serve as the medical home for thousands of low-income and uninsured patients and families. The Foundation offsets the cost of preventative and ongoing care to those served by these centers.
