The Barnes-Jewish St. Peters & Progress West Foundation provides vital support to BJC HealthCare’s efforts to promote health, wellness, and state-of-the-art care in St. Charles County. By connecting donor funds to the people and programs that need it most, we provide for the families who rely on the health care services offered at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital, Progress West Hospital, and Siteman Cancer Center – St. Peters. Our Foundation is committed to a single mission: to provide health, healing, and hope to the people in this community.

The Health, Healing, and Hope Gala, supports the mission and core values upheld by our Foundation. We believe every person in our community ought to have the freedom to create a healthful life. The Foundation make this a reality by funding programs and services above and beyond those covered by normal hospital operations. The night gives the opportunity to raise critical funds to aid our patients, caregivers, and necessary therapy services, thereby allowing the Foundation to continue supporting and fostering a healthier St. Charles County.
