Spirit of Charity Foundation
Founded in 1993 by Jerry Romig, the Spirit of Charity Foundation has traditionally supported the medical needs of our most vulnerable populations in our region. The Foundation has raised the level of patient care at Charity and University Hospitals, the Interim LSU Hospital and, now, at University Medical Center New Orleans. We are helping friends, family and neighbors when they need help the most. It is the mission of the Foundation to support and facilitate patient-centered care, actively promote health and wellness and to advance medical research and education through fundraising efforts for the benefit of the University Medical Center New Orleans, its patients, and friends.
WELLNESS & RESPONSE FUND
Our team is doing heroic work caring for all of us in the community. Our Wellness & Response Fund supports our staff, patients, and programs as we deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding provides healthcare workers with additional safety equipment, stress, and psychological support and expands outreach, programs, and services that impact some of the hardest hit in our community.
