Boniface Foundation supports Mercy Hospital South in living out the healing ministry of Jesus by providing compassion care and exceptional service. Our grants help with the capital and program needs of the hospital, as well as the needs of the co-workers.

Boniface Foundation gifted $18 million to Mercy Hospital South’s new, state-of-the-art suites for labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum needs which opened December 2021. Half of the fourth floor of the main hospital tower at Mercy Hospital South was gutted and rebuilt to create 15 new LDRP suites. Each spacious suite is larger than previous labor and delivery rooms and is designed to provide a comfortable space for a family’s entire stay from arrival to discharge.

In an effort to support the South County community with comprehensive cancer care close to home, we funded $15 million to the construction of a cancer center and related programming on the campus of Mercy Hospital South. The 70,000-square-foot, stand-alone comprehensive cancer care center is named the David M. Sindelar Cancer Center in honor of Mr. Sindelar’s dedication and service to St. Anthony’s through the years as a Board Member, Chairman of the Board and most recently prior to his passing in 2017 as its Chief Executive Officer. The cancer center opened in August 2020 and provides patients one location for diagnosis and treatment of all cancers, including enhanced technological capabilities along with access to oncology and surgical specialists. This facility also includes a new breast center.

Boniface Foundation provided funding for the additional technology and equipment in Interventional Radiology serving Mercy Hospital South’s neurology program and top rated stroke program.

We established The Norbert Siegfried Scholarship for Sons and Daughters of Co-Workers program in 2006 at the St. Louis Community Foundation to help Mercy Hospital South co-workers' children realize the dream of a college education. Children of full time and regular part-time staff are eligible who demonstrate financial need and attend an accredited, nonprofit, four-year college or university.
