PNCI is a dedicated sponsor of the Sister Michel Patient Compassion Endowment.
Sister Michel Pantenburg, a tireless advocate of the poor and underserved, established the St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation to help fund critical healthcare services, ensure that the hospital is able to meet the community’s needs, and build for the future. Sister Michel passed away in 2016, but her legacy of advancing the growth of healthcare and of philanthropy in our community will forever pave the way for generations to come.
The Sister Michel Patient Compassion Fund was established in 2019 and truly exhibits the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth’s mission to serve the poor and vulnerable, while also honoring the legacy and life of Sister Michel. The endowment specifically focuses on serving the following areas of need:
• Transportation needs
• Short-term lodging assistance
• Prescription Medication assistance
• New born car seats (including specialty car seats for premature babies)
• Meal cards
• In-home medical equipment
