Campaign for St. Anthony Exceeds Goal

Gig Harbor, WA

The two-year Campaign for St. Anthony Hospital raised $16 million to benefit the new Franciscan Health System hospital. The campaign exceeded its $10 million goal by raising more than $11 million in pledges and contributions from individuals, companies and foundations. In addition, the Franciscan Foundation secured $5 million in state grant funding to help improve traffic access to the hospital. More than 1,300 campaign donors have helped to fund a variety of needs for the hospital, including a state-of-the-art outpatient cancer center and a 24-hour emergency care center.
