Mission Statement

St. Vincent Hospital Foundation promotes access to quality health care through outreach, service and development by supporting the programs and services of St. Vincent Health.

Organization History

St. Vincent General Hospital District has a rich tradition going back over 135 years when nuns from the Sisters of Charity-Leavenworth, KS came to Leadville in 1879. Leadville, then a booming mining town, was in desperate need of a hospital and the Sisters of Charity came to answer the call. From 1879 until the present, St. Vincent Hospital has served the area, meeting the health care needs of its citizens with the same commitment found in the Sisters of Charity. St. Vincent Hospital Foundation was incorporated in 2003.
