Message from the Chairman


For more than 5 years, I have been intricately involved with the Loretto Hospital Foundation (LHF) and Loretto Hospital, by helping to bring quality healthcare to the Austin Community and to all the wonderful West Side neighborhoods that border Austin.

The primary purpose of the LHF is to build stronger and healthier communities by upholding Loretto’s mission of providing quality patient-centered care in a safe holistic environment. Loretto Hospital has been a viable community-based hospital in the Austin Community for more than 71 years. This great hospital is still standing strong today because of the ongoing generosity and philanthropic support of our friends. The tremendous financial backing we have received over the years has helped the LHF to fund excellent healthcare programs and services, and has assisted Loretto to make healthcare educational resources more accessible to the communities that we serve.

If this is your first time hearing about Loretto and the LHF, or if you are looking for opportunities to expand in your charitable giving, this website offers a full spectrum of ways you can help. Please take the time to review our programs carefully and to see what our past contributions has allowed us to accomplish. Although we are proud of our achievements, there is still a lot of work to be done.

I hope that you too will become a Friend of Loretto and join our mission of providing better standards, better care and better outcomes to the Austin Community. On behalf of the Loretto Hospital Foundation, our Board of Directors and Loretto Hospital, I would like to thank you for visiting our website.
