Healing Hands Campaign

Where Innovation Meets Compassion

Expanding upon SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital – Madison’s more than 110-year history of providing compassionate, Mission-based care in Dane County, the comprehensive Healing Hands campaign is raising $10 Million in philanthropic support to power our health care ministry into a forward-looking era of advanced patient care.

Philanthropy has been integral and helped to build SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital – Madison more than a century ago when 8 religious sisters conducted a postcard campaign to raise the $25,000 necessary to reach the $150,000 needed for construction of the original building. The last comprehensive campaign supported the hospital’s East Wing Expansion in 2008, which nearly doubled the size of the hospital, added a rooftop helipad and cardiovascular surgical care suites.

The Healing Hands campaign will allow SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital – Madison to realize its goal for the future – to improve access to high-quality, high-value care to meet the growing need for complex care in the community. It supports forward-thinking initiatives at SSM Health that further establish our hospital as a center for complex care in Wisconsin.

Investments in surgical innovation and robotics will allow us to offer minimally invasive procedures to more patients than ever before, improving outcomes and getting patients back to doing what they love, while opening beds for those waiting for a higher level of care.

Through the Healing Hands campaign, SSM Health is investing in leading-edge technologies, including robotic surgical tools and integration that enhance doctors’ ability to predict, diagnose, and treat disease. The campaign will provide philanthropic support for emerging needs, clinical education, and the advancement of community health initiatives. Programmatic growth and innovative procedures will elevate the patient experience for everyone who comes to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital – Madison for care.

Join us with a gift to the Healing Hands campaign - an investment in our future!
