About the Foundation

"It's in Our Hands..."

Is a phrase that refers to how our founding Sisters have entrusted us to remember each patient at St. Anthony is valued as an unique human being worthy of healing.

More than 100 years ago, St. Anthony Hospital opened its doors and its arms to the people of Oklahoma, as the first hospital in Oklahoma territory. As a faith based, not-for-profit Hospital, St. Anthony provides exceptional, compassionate healthcare to all, including the poor and often forgotten. This is our mission, our sacred trust and our moral obligation.

Established in 1963, St. Anthony Foundation is a nonprofit
501 (c)(3) organization and the first Catholic healthcare Foundation in Oklahoma.  Donations and gifts to St. Anthony Foundation support the programs and patients of St. Anthony Hospital, Bone and Joint Hospital at St. Anthony and other SSM Health Care affiliates.  For 50 years, St. Anthony Foundation has provided key financial support to St. Anthony Hospital by encouraging patient, community, employee and physician support.
