Compassionate Care

Help those patients in need

The Keith Sivertson, MD Compassionate Care Program directly improves community health by helping those in need successfully manage their health. The program supports patients by assisting with the cost of lodging, transportation, medical supplies, medications, and other health-related necessities. This program is designed to encourage health and healing by helping provide access to supplemental health care resources to patients with significant financial hardship.

The health needs of patients can quickly escalate when a patient lacks the ability to get to a doctor’s appointment, afford critical medication to manage disease, or have their homes properly outfitted with the medical equipment they need. These health needs often lead to costly health crises, which could otherwise be avoided.

The Keith Sivertson, MD Compassionate Care Program, managed by the St. Luke’s Center for Community Health, offers a solution. Patients can access this fund through multiple St. Luke’s channels, including the emergency department, hospital social workers, and clinical care coordinators.
