Essentia Health Foundation

Essentia Health Foundation exists to enhance the quality of health care in our local communities by supporting our patients and providers with compassionate care, programming, research and technology. Essentia Health Foundation works with its local foundations, i.e. St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation, Duluth Clinic Foundation, St. Mary’s Hospital of Superior Foundation, and Essentia Health-Virginia Regional Foundation.

Donors can designate their gifts for a variety of local needs. All gifts to Essentia Health Foundation are tax deductible and have helped support these projects along with many more:

  • Alternative therapies for oncology patients including aromatherapy and massage therapy
  • Gas cards and hotel stays for patients in need traveling for treatment
  • Technology such as CancerHelp Online
  • New infusion center chairs for Essentia Health-Virginia Infusion Center
  • Educational resources such as the inflatable colon and inflatable lung
  • Care packages that include educational and support materials for oncology patients at Essentia Health-Hibbing Clinic
