Champions of Care
If you or a loved one has received exceptional care from a team member or department at CHI St. Joseph Health, you may make a donation in their honor as "Champion of Care". Honored team members are presented a pin and your donation is directed to support their department.
Mission & Ministry
Your investment in this area enables CHI St. Joseph Health to connect patients to support resources through our spiritual care team as well as provide for ongoing mission enrichment activities connecting our employees to the founding ministry of our Sisters.
Education & Training
Your support for education and training not only allows CHI St. Joseph Health to connect our healthcare workers to the latest advancements in medical treatments, but it also enables us to retain the highest qualified staff in the Brazos Valley. Our employees feel valued when we support their professional growth and our patients benefit from their advanced knowledge gained through ongoing training.

Special Projects

Our foundation also works on special projects such as capital campaigns and initiatives to help underpin the success of those projects. Whether the project is a building campaign or assistance with purchasing specialized medical technology, donor investments are often critically important in enabling CHI St. Joseph Health to provide the communities we serve with the most advanced technology and facilities for their healthcare needs.

Foundation Initiatives:

These are items The Foundation is charged with raising funds to purchase, complementing our mission of service. Currently The Foundation is raising funds for two important initiatives.

Advancing Technology and Saving Lives:

This initiative will pay for the purchase of 3D Mammogram Technology to help women avoid false positives in breast cancer diagnosis and to better find breast cancer. The most accurate and early detection saves lives, and this initiative will allow us to do that with the latest and best equipment available. You are absolutely helping to save lives in our community, with your support of this initiative!

Patient Outcomes First:

This initiative will pay for the purchase of a DAVINCI XI Surgical Robot. The XI allows surgeons to complete more types of surgeries than previous DAVINCI models, allowing patients to heal faster, with less post-surgical infection and complication, with shorter hospital stays allowing them to return to their lives faster, all while reducing the use of narcotics.
