St. Mary's Funding Priorities and Needs
St. Mary's Health System is a not for profit organization that relies, in part, on philanthropic support for funding some of its healthcare and health related initiatives. It is important to maintain a steady flow of income for needed improvements to our facilities and equipment. St. Mary's also has a long-term commitment to provide and care for those less fortunate in our community.
Making an unrestricted gift to the Patient Care Services Fund will support the overall St. Mary's Health System priorities and offer flexibility to fund areas with the most pressing need.
Restricted Funds "restrict" a gift for a specific service, program, capital project or department of the hospital.
A few examples:
- Nutrition Center of Maine promotes community health through organizing, advocacy, and education. Located in the heart of downtown, the Nutrition Center serves as a healthy food hub in the midst of Lewiston's most diverse and economically challenged neighborhoods.
- St. Mary's d'Youville Pavilion is one of the largest nursing homes north of Boston providing residents with the most advanced technology and skilled nursing care in the region.
- St. Mary's Residences (formally know as Maison Marcotte) is an independent living facility containing 128 apartments, 110 of which serve those with low to moderate income.
- Behavioral Health Services offer the most advanced diagnostic and healthcare treatment services for children, adolescents and adults in both inpatient and outpatient program settings.
- Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders is one of the premier cancer care facilities in central Maine. Our cancer program is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on cancer.
