The 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.
The Boniface Foundation just announced a gift of $18 million to Mercy Hospital South for the funding of a new labor and delivery unit expected to be completed in early 2021. The rebuild will include 14 labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms (LDRPs), with separate family waiting rooms close to the mothers' rooms. Construction is planned in four phases beginning in late 2019 and lasting through early 2021.
The Boniface Foundation is committed to helping Mercy Hospital South establish a cancer center on the campus of the Mercy Hospital South. We contributed $15,000,000 to the construction of the new 70,000-square-foot, two-story, stand-alone comprehensive cancer care center. It will provide patients one location for diagnosis and treatment of all cancers, including enhanced technological capabilities along with access to oncology and surgical specialists. The facility also will include a new breast center. This new cancer center will be 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 as its Chief Executive Officer.
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 four-year Missouri college or university or at any of Southern Illinois University's five campuses or the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The fund will also help support certifications and continuing education for Respiratory Therapist, Lab Scientists, and Medical Assistants.
