Saint Anthony Hospital is a community teaching hospital, dedicated to serving the health needs of Chicago's West and Southwest sides. The hospital promotes health and provides quality care to patients and families of all faiths in our community. The primary goal is to improve the lives of low-income families and children in some of Chicago’s most vulnerable neighborhoods. The Saint Anthony Hospital Foundation works to foster the spirit of philanthropy and provide capital resources to support the mission of the hospital. The Associates Board, composed of a group of professionals and future community leaders between the ages of 25-45, work with the Foundation to serve the mission of Saint Anthony Hospital by serving in a volunteer capacity to help to raise funds for the hospital, raise awareness of the hospital in the Chicago area, as well as engage other potential associate board members or supporters.
