Ways to Give

If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.
~Maya Angelou

Since 1941, Mount St. Mary Hospital has been a home for those who are unable to care for themselves but don’t need acute care services. At Mount St. Mary, we embrace a Home Life Model of Care and strive to alleviate loneliness, helplessness and boredom by offering a variety of living spaces, and engaging residents, to the greatest extent possible, in meaningful activities of daily living.

But we can’t do it without YOU.

Although essential to the health and well-being of our residents, government funding covers only a fraction of the cost of hospital equipment, caregiver education, activities and supportive programs for residents.

Your gift allows us to enhance the care, comfort, dignity and respect of vulnerable members of our community. With your help, we can provide equipment, programs and services to increase the standard of care for the 275 residents and their families who call Mount St. Mary home each year. This includes things like:


  • Music therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Spiritual care
  • Therapeutic equipment
  • Room renovations to ensure safety, comfort and accessibility
