SVHsupport is a locally managed nonprofit organization that partners with CHRISTUS Health to provide ongoing financial and strategic support for CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center (CSVRMC).
SVHsupport provides funding for projects that improve the quality of care at the hospital, such as:
- expansion of the surgery rooms
- purchase of Physicians Medical Center
- providing recognition and awards for outstanding CSVRMC employees
- contributing funding for the employee housing program
SVHsupport provides financial support for complementary projects that directly impact the health and wellness of our community. We offer financial assistance for specific women’s health services not performed at CSVRMC, such as elective tubal sterilizations, and funding scholarships for Capital High School students who are interested in pursuing a career in health care.
Related to strategic and policy oversight of CSVRMC, SVHsupport appoints 50 percent of the members on the CSVRMC Board of Directors and CHRISTUS Health appoints the other half of the Board. SVHsupport works in close collaboration with the CHRISTUS Health Board appointees to assure that interests and goals are aligned and that CSVRMC is serving the healthcare needs of our community. In addition, SVHsupport sits on all of the governing committees of CSVRMC, including Quality, Finance, Audit and Governance.
