From giving hearts to loving hands

Every day is a giving day for the caregivers and volunteers at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.

Our place in Cleveland and our mission as a Catholic hospital demands more of us than other healthcare institutions in this city. We have embraced a special calling to serve the poor who walk through our doors and the unmet needs of our community.

Your gifts, no matter the amount, save and change lives for the better, help families find strength and comfort when they are most vulnerable, and allow those in the grasp of addiction to find freedom and support.

Your generosity ensures that Cleveland maintains its downtown hospital, a treasured asset in the healthcare industry, one of this city's renowned economic drivers.

Your support affirms your belief in the role that faith-based care has for all patients, regardless of religion and ability to pay.

Why Give

Meeting All Kinds of Needs

Impoverished, sick and vulnerable people count on St. Vincent Charity Medical Center for life-transforming services every day. Our mission is to serve as an extension of the healing ministry of Jesus. Your support of our mission will heal individuals, families and communities. For real-life examples of how your help can make a difference in someone’s life, read below.

Commitment to Caring

St. Vincent Charity Medical Center has been caring for people for more than 150 years, regardless of their ability to pay for that care. Philanthropic support from the community helps to provide nearly $13.6 million annually in community benefit through:

  • Free and discounted care to those unable to afford health care
  • Care to low-income beneficiaries of Medicaid and other indigent care programs
  • Services designed to improve community health and increase access to health care 

Excellence and Value

St. Vincent Charity Medical Center prides itself on combining clinical excellence with human compassion for all our patients. Our size gives us the freedom to provide that personal care at a lower cost. But our resources are stretched, particularly at a time when so many individuals are in need of care. Your support can make a tremendous difference in our ability to fulfill our mission.

Thank you for your interest in our work.

With your help, we can carry on our faith-based legacy of high quality, compassionate care for all of God’s people for another 150 years.
