SIH Foundation

Did You Know SIH is Not-for-profit?

As a not-for-profit tax-exempt organization, SIH relies on the generosity of the community to help us continue to make high-quality health care accessible to those who live and work in our service area.

About the Foundation

The SIH Foundation is the charitable arm of Southern Illinois Healthcare (SIH) and was established in 2010 to receive philanthropic gifts on behalf of Herrin Hospital, Memorial Hospital of Carbondale and St. Joseph Memorial Hospital of Murphysboro. The funds raised are used to enhance and support the SIH mission of improving the health and well being of all the people in the communities we serve.

What sets us apart is our commitment to direct 100% of your gift/donation to the charitable area you designate. The SIH Foundation does not take out any administrative fees from your gift.

Charitable gifts through the SIH Foundation help:
  • Supply equipment and resources to enhance services
  • Fund community service programs
  • Provide funding for capital improvements to best serve ever changing needs
  • Provide financial support to fund patient care
