The St. Mary's Hospital Foundation is a philanthropic arm of St. Mary's Hospital, helping to further enhance the hospital's excellence as a provider of comprehensive health care services, quality medical care and clinical research through philanthropic support of its programs, activities and facilities.
Each year, the Foundation organizes events to generate funds for scholarships to Southern Maryland residents who want to pursue a health care degree. These events have become popular within the Southern Maryland community, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to assist students in reaching their career goals.
