Our approach to health care delivery is transformative, blending cutting-edge treatments with compassionate support. Guided by innovation, expertise and compassionate leadership, St. Peter’s is committed to enriching lives and rekindling hope. Through philanthropy, we are expanding access to advanced care, treatments and crucial support services for patients and their families. From initial diagnoses to life beyond illness, donor contributions will shape the journey forward for these individuals.

Dialysis New Build

Our nationally acclaimed outpatient dialysis program exemplifies our commitment to delivering the highest quality care. Led by Nephrologist Dr. Robert LaClair, over 50% of our patients receive dialysis treatments at home (peritoneal or hemodialysis), far surpassing the national average of 10%. In pursuit of this goal, we aim to raise $3 million to relocate our cutting-edge dialysis unit. This move will not only transform lives but also instill renewed hope in individuals fighting kidney disease.

Patient Assistance

Patient assistance programs play a vital role in eliminating barriers to health care access and life-saving treatments by alleviating financial constraints. Our Patient Assistance Fund is removing these barriers to care. Through philanthropic efforts, we can help patients in need by covering transportation, medication, food, lodging and more. This enables patients to focus solely on their treatment without having to choose between continuing treatment or meeting basic needs.
