Established in 1984, The CHI St. Joseph Health Foundation connects donors with opportunities to support and enhance the healing mission of CHI St. Joseph Health. Donors can select from a variety of programs and special projects to positively impact patient care across our service area in the Brazos Valley.

Sustaining Programs

CHI St. Joseph Health offers programs annually to support the ongoing healing ministry established by the Sisters of St. Francis in 1936.

Mission Integration
Mission Integration supports the Sisters’ tradition of healing the whole patient. These traditions include providing inspirational and faith filled reminders in our facilities, aiding training and development of our Spiritual Care Team, sharing the Sisters’ Mission with exposure of team members to The Sisters of Sylvania, Ohio, and other areas assuring the continued focus of the Sisters' Mission of Healthcare and Tradition of Catholic Healthcare.
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.
Professional Development
In order to provide the highest level of care to our patients, we must never stop learning/ getting better at what we do. Professional Development funds allow team members to attend training and continued education courses. The Foundation has sent numerous team members, from nurses to environmental service staff, to professional conferences and educational trainings. We hope to continue to do so.
Capital Projects
The Patient Experience is greatly enhanced with upkeep of our numerous clinics, hospitals, and equipment. We are constantly budgeting for Capital Projects, and with your support, they can be completed more quickly.
Foundation Initiatives
The CHI St. Joseph Health Foundation is charged with raising funds to purchase equipment complementing our mission of service. Currently, the Foundation is raising funds for two important initiatives.
Advancing Technology and Saving Lives: Raising Funds for a 3D Mammography Machine. 3D mammography has become the standard in mammography and saves lives through the detection of breast cancer in earlier stages compared to traditional mammography machines. 3D mammography also delivers fewer false-positive results. An additional 3D mammography machine will directly save the lives of mothers, wives, daughters and sisters living in the Brazos Valley.
Patient Outcomes First: Raising Funds for the da Vinci XI Surgical Robot. The da Vinci XI’s capabilities extend further and accommodate a larger range of surgeries than previous da Vinci models. This means shorter hospital stays, less risk of infection and fewer complications. Additionally, less medication is required to manage pain post-surgery, directly impacting the current opioid crisis facing our nation.
