Investment in St. Peter’s Health offers the ability to provide our patients and community with a higher state of care. This commitment is made possible by donor generosity, and that of our neighbors and friends who support our mission, vision, and values.

Physician Partners, established in 2018, gives special recognition to physicians who wish to improve the health of our community through philanthropy by supporting St. Peter’s Health Foundation. This society of physicians continues the tradition of health care excellence at St. Peter’s Health.

The importance of physician support

For 135 years, St. Peter’s Health physicians have provided excellent health care services for the greater Helena community. As the region continues to grow, the delivery of health care will continue to be a complex challenge—one that requires collaboration and commitment. The challenge of meeting expanding responsibilities increases each and every year.

Join the physicians, members of St. Peter’s Health Board of Directors and the Senior Management Team who give to St. Peter’s Health Foundation. Your support communicates that you stand with them in working to achieve St. Peter’s Health’s goals for a higher state of care.
