The Cornerstone of Our Vibrant Community
Sacred Heart Foundation is dedicated to advancing Sacred Heart's mission of providing healthcare services that prioritize compassion, quality, and innovation for every patient, every day. From helping the hospital purchase the most technologically advanced medical equipment to funding education that enables our caregivers to perform the most advanced medical procedures, Sacred Heart Foundation provides critical resources that support Sacred Heart’s award-winning care for our patients, their families, and our community.
In 1984, our Foundation was formed as a not-for-profit organization committed to enhancing the current and future healthcare needs of the Gulf Coast. Since that time, we have carried forth the tradition of “giving to help others” that inspired the building of the original Sacred Heart Hospital.
Over a century ago, The Daughters of Charity were asked to come to Pensacola and build a hospital so that the community could have better healthcare. The funds that made this request a reality came from a local businessman and others he inspired to contribute. That long-ago philanthropy continues to resonate today throughout our region. Just as the Daughters provided healing for the poorest and most needy that came to their hospital, Ascension Sacred Heart carries on their work, supported by the generosity and charitable giving of those who live throughout the communities we serve.
We envision a robust healing ministry committed to the health and well-being of communities throughout our region. The young and old, the poor and needy, those without resources – all will be welcomed through the doors of Ascension Sacred Heart hospitals and healthcare facilities, regardless of their ability to pay.
We envision bringing quality, compassionate care to Northwest Florida, providing more people with the best healthcare services and innovative programs they might never have access to otherwise.
We envision Ascension Sacred Heart as the catalyst for the future of healthcare in our region, encouraged and supported by our efforts to garner financial support through charitable giving and volunteerism.
