Spirit of Charity Foundation
Supporting and facilitating healthcare for the people of New Orleans and the region
Founded in 1993 by Jerry Romig, the 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, the new UMCNO. 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.
