Your Investment in Our Healing Mission
Extending our healing ministry
Philanthropy enhances clinical programs that advance our Health System's mission to extend the healing ministry of Jesus. It is used to:
- support programs and services for women and children in need of specialized care;
- strengthen comprehensive services offered to patients battling cancer; and
- underwrite faith-based care for individuals and families in our Hospice Residence.
Your investment in AMITA Health Alexian Brothers Health System can help us give all families facing health challenges access to exceptional, compassionate healthcare by:
Ensuring high-quality care for all families
About 60% of families served by AMITA Health Alexian Brothers Women & Children's Hospital Hoffman Estates rely on Medicaid. Philanthropic support provides them with access to a range of pediatric subspecialists. It helps sustain one of the region's most advanced programs for children with complex neurological issues. It ensures appropriate resources for women with high-risk pregnancies and perinatal mood disorders, and for vulnerable infants as young as 24 weeks and as small as one pound. Philanthropy helps families return home from the hospital with the resources they need and underwrites child life services to help hospitalized children feel like kids again.
Your support helps us provide every family, regardless of its income, access to world-class, compassionate care. Learn more about AMITA Health Women & Children's Hospital.
Addressing the needs of individuals with cancer
Every year hundreds of people come to the Cancer Institute at AMITA Health Alexian Brothers Health System for cancer care that couples personal attention with a vigorous oncology research program. For the many individuals facing cancer who lack adequate insurance coverage, philanthropy builds a bridge to a range of complementary therapies and support programs that support traditional cancer therapies and treatments. In addition, it helps underwrite the cost of nurse navigators who coordinate care among a multidisciplinary team, guiding individuals along the complex path of cancer treatment and recovery.
Your support can help make this challenging and often overwhelming path a little easier for individuals with cancer. Learn more about our Cancer Institute.
Providing faith-based hospice care
Your philanthropic community made possible the opening of AMITA Health Alexian Brothers Hospice Residence in 2013. Donors continue to underwrite hospice care for those in need. Philanthropic support provides a comforting environment for individuals who cannot afford care in their own home or whose symptoms are too difficult for loved ones to provide care. It provides a holistic approach that supports the body, mind and spirit. And it supports complementary art, music and massage therapies, which foster comfort in the face of loss.
Your support helps provide faith-based hospice care to individuals whose illnesses have no cure, and provides families facing loss with a team of compassionate professionals to walk alongside them on their journey. Learn more about our Hospice Residence.
