About St. Francis Medical Center Society and Foundation

  • Letter from Mary Eileen "Dub" Drees
    Dub Drees

    Dear Friends,

    Our hospital is undergoing an exciting revitalization! While we’re investing in new equipment, facilities and top-notch physicians and nurses, our patients will receive the same care and kindness they’ve come to expect from St. Francis Medical Center.

    As we move forward Together in Health, St. Francis Medical Center Foundation will carry on our long tradition of investing in the health and well-being of our communities through philanthropy.

    In addition to raising funds for important life-saving technology, we extend a helping hand to thousands of men, women and children through community outreach programs – such as wellness education, shoes and backpacks for kids, and support for new and expectant mothers and their babies.

    Please join us in our work to provide safe, compassionate care to the communities we serve by making a donation today. Thank you for your partnership as we invest in the future!

    Sincerely,

    drees_signature
