Spirit of Caring

It is an honor to play a role in your experience at St. Francis and St. Gertrude’s. We have chosen to be here, to care for those who need us, and to provide a healing experience we would expect for our families and ourselves.

 In Reach Program


If someone made your visit to St. Francis or St. Gertrude’s special, please consider honoring him or her in our grateful patient and family program, Spirit of Caring.

Recognition, or a gift in their honor, is a thoughtful way to recognize your physician, nurse, housekeeping, spirit of caring for patients and their families when they need it the most.

Integrative Health


It is important to celebrate milestones in life like a birth of a child, a full recovery, or becoming a survivor. A tribute gift is a wonderful way to share the joy and support programs that you think are important in helping others.

Memorials are a thoughtful way to celebrate people who have touched our lives while making a positive impact on others’ lives.

Making a gift to Spirit of Caring is a meaningful way to memorialize a loved one while supporting patient and resident care at St. Francis and St. Gertrude’s. You can choose to support a variety of programs that would best honor your loved one.

If you would like to add a message to an obituary or memorial that suggests friends and family donate to the Saints Foundation in lieu of flowers, you can consider adding:
