Daughters of Charity
The Daughters of Charity have a long, rich history of serving the community through their dedication to education and the relief of suffering for those poor in health and spirit. Their tireless efforts to help the sick led to the development of what is now Ascension Providence Hospital. The Daughters' founding charter said they would "assist all persons...suffering from any disease or infirmity"...and "establish hospitals for their support, care and relief." To this day, the hospital continues to have compassionate Daughters of Charity present on the two campuses to guide our ministry in serving those most in need. Sister Joan Drega, a Daughter of Charity since 1955, is the Foundation Liaison at Ascension Providence Hospital.
"As a physician at Ascension Providence Hospital, I see firsthand how the generosity of our donors helps our patients heal--body, mind and spirit. Thank you for joining our Providence Society family; your gifts support our health system in important ways," says Shukri David, MD, Physician Chair, Heart & Vascular Center of Excellence, Ascension Michigan, and Art Van Elslander Chair of Cardiology, Ascension Providence Hospital.
