Beyond Medicine

42 million thanks for $42 million raised! 

Columbia St. Mary's Foundation has exceeded its Beyond Medicine campaign fundraising goal, raising more than $42 million. 

The campaign provided $25 million to help build the new Columbia St. Mary's Hospital Milwaukee, $10 million in "Above and Beyond" enhancements to patient care throughout our system, and more than $6 million in support for the most vulnerable through community benefit programs.  Among dozens of Foundation-funded programs, upgrades and services were a new bed tower and lobby and Emergency Department renovations at Columbia St. Mary's Ozaukee; patient experience enhancements; community benefit programs and free or low-cost health services for the un- and under-insured.
