Your gift will ensure that, together, we are making our communities stronger, healthier, better.
The Elmbrook Foundation actively builds and sustains philanthropic support for the advancement of health care in our surrounding communities. Fulfilling that Mission means we provide the programs and services our patients need and will continue to care for everyone who walk through our doors – regardless of their ability to pay. In Service to Excellence
The Foundation advances Ascension’s Mission by securing funds to sustain and enhance Ascension SE Wisconsin Hospital - Elmbrook Campus’ exceptional health care services. Gifts from our donors have funded many advances in care such as:
Helping save the lives of cancer patients by providing the latest technology in radiation oncology. Offering women a wide variety of state-of-the-art breast health testing including mammography, ultrasound and biopsy at the Pavlic Center. Enabling our highly educated medical staff to be well-equipped with the most current knowledge and skills through continuing education funded by the foundation.
The Foundation also helps sustain Ascension Elmbrook Hospital's charitable care program, which contributes annually to the health care needs of low-income, uninsured, under-insured or other vulnerable patients in our community. Additional Foundation funds assist Elmbrook Hospital's community support groups and health care screenings. Board of Directors
The Foundation is entrusted to a board of directors, who are an ethical, dedicated and visionary group representing local business, medical and organizational leadership.
