Saints Healthcare Foundation’s mission is to assure resources exist to meet the healthcare needs of communities served by two remarkable health care organizations: St. Francis Regional Medical Center and St. Gertrude’s Health & Rehabilitation Center.
The Foundation offers a trusted place where you can make a difference in the lives of family and friends who are sick and suffering by volunteering your time or making a charitable donation.
St. Francis Regional Medical Center tour
Saints Healthcare Foundation recently provided a tour for the key leaders of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC), Chairman Charlie Vig and Tribal Administrator, Bill Rudnicki. These leaders were able to see a demonstration of the new C-arm surgical table’s capabilities and learn of the benefit it will provide to patients undergoing urological, kidney and prostrate surgeries at the St. Francis Regional Medical Center. The new surgical table, made possible by SMSC’s generous contribution, gives St. Francis the ability to provide greater surgical options locally for residents of the community.
