The CHRISTUS St. Vincent Homewise program was initially started by the St. Vincent Hospital Foundation in 2005 in an effort to help strengthen the local healthcare system by ensuring healthcare providers lived in the community where they worked. The inaugural program was funded with $100K from CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center for down payment assistance and the St. Vincent Hospital Foundation provided $1M for mortgage assistance. The funding enabled 72 CHRISTUS St. Vincent employees to buy homes.
CSVRMC employees interested in participating in this program should contact the CSVRMC human resources department.
