Care for the Poor
Through the generosity of our donors, St. Joseph Hospital provides vital,
often life-saving care to the working poor in our community. Without such
support, many of these patients would have nowhere else to turn for care.
La Amistad Family Health Center is devoted to providing high quality primary
medical and dental healthcare services and education to the underserved
in our community.
Puente a La Salud Mobile Community Clinics serve all of Orange County.
Puente provides access to primary medical, dental, vision care and health
promotion services for workers and their families.
Funds raised through Care for the Poor will go directly to helping the
underserved in our community, continuing St. Joseph Hospital's tradition
of caring for the Dear Neighbor.
At St. Joseph Hospital we think babies are pretty special and providing
them with a welcoming, secure environment is a priority. This means construction
of additional private patient rooms in our Mother Baby Unit where new
parents can build bonds with their newest family member. And for babies
needing a bit more attention during those early days, an onsite NICU staffed
by CHOC specialists will be available.
The Center for Breast Imaging and Diagnosis at St. Joseph Hospital will
focus on meeting the individual needs of each patient through an array
of sophisticated imaging, diagnostic, treatment and support services.
This center is designed to give busy women peace of mind and the confidence
that no matter what the need – from prevention, early detection
and diagnostic services through treatment and survivorship – they
will receive the most advanced care available in the most convenient,
compassionate setting that is the signature of St. Joseph Hospital.
