About Us

Compassionate care for the community From its founding in 1906 as Athens' first hospital, St. Mary's has provided compassionate care to the people of Athens and Northeast Georgia. Today, St. Mary's is Northeast Georgia's only faith-based health care system, continuing a tradition of providing personalized care inspired by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and now sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.

St. Mary's Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(C)(3) organization that enhances the services of St. Mary's Health Care System and ensures that these services are available to everyone who needs them, regardless of ability to pay. St. Mary's provides more than $7 million a year in charity and uncompensated care. Your generous gift helps keep these vital services available to the whole community.

In addition, the Foundation works to strengthen St. Mary's ties to the community in support of the system's full range of facilities and services, including:

St. Mary's Hospital, a large acute-care facility emphasizing neurosciences, orthopedics, women's and children's health, cardiac services, gastroenterology and services for seniors.
