Hospice Austin is pleased to focus our Community Partner’s spotlight on St. David’s Foundation this month! St. David’s Foundation is committed to improving the health and well-being of our community by partnering and locking arms with organizations that support our underserved and vulnerable Central Texas neighbors. In a unique partnership with St. David’s HealthCare, the proceeds from the operations of the hospital fund the Foundation, which in turn are invested back into the community to improve the health of people in Central Texas.
St. David’s Foundation’s partnership and generous investment in Hospice Austin over the past several years have allowed us to:
- provide thousands of days of charity care for underserved and uninsured hospice patients in our community
- launch Austin Palliative Care, a community-based palliative care program where doctors and nurse practitioners visit patients in their homes
- develop The Gift Project to encourage health care providers and individuals to learn about advance care planning before a medical crisis occurs
- offset the cost of reducing occupancy and maintaining our dedicated staff at Hospice Austin’s Christopher House due to the construction noise and dust of a massive mixed-use construction project next door
St. David’s Foundation, you make our community better. Thank you!
