Letter from the Vice President

Dear Friends,

I often hear (and have experienced) that walking the halls of Ascension St. Vincent has a special feeling—one filled with a sense of community, belonging, and purpose. It’s a feeling where the spirit of caring is around every corner, touching the lives of all in mind, body, and spirit.

Your generous support as a donor plays an important role in the spirit of caring, making a meaningful impact on the compassionate care we deliver. I hope you will take time to read this report so you can see first hand the impact you have had on those we served over the past year. Whether it’s caring for tomorrow by supporting our tiniest patients, caring for our associates through education and hardship assistance, or caring for all in our communities by providing healthcare access and resources, your positive impact is extensive.

Because of your contributions, our Foundations have the honor and privilege of supporting all Ascension St. Vincent ministries, impacting patients and families from across Indiana and beyond. 100% of your donation always supports the program, service or hospital you select.

Thank you for embodying the spirit of caring through your generosity. Your continued support ensures that the programs and services that rely on philanthropy remain accessible to our patients, families, and dedicated care team members for many years to come.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Ascension St. Vincent Foundation

Jim and Marilyn Ault: High school sweethearts with a heart for service

Jim and Marilyn Ault are dynamic teammates that together have left a significant footprint on the Anderson community and Ascension St. Vincent. At 87 years old and with 67 years of marriage under their belts, Jim and Marilyn have served as co-chairpersons of the Ascension St. Vincent Kids Classic benefiting Peyton Manning Children’s – St. John’s Children’s Clinic for 15 years.

Jim and Marilyn’s involvement with the hospital began at a very young age. Marilyn was born in 1936 at the then named Saint John’s Hospital. Jim had his appendix removed at the hospital when he was seven years old and both of their sons were born at Saint John’s Hospital. They shared, “Ascension St. Vincent has been an integral part of our lives and to Madison County. We are very fortunate to be involved with such a great organization.”

Helping others with healthcare needs, especially the poor and vulnerable, has always been a priority to Jim and Marilyn. They served as co-chairpersons of the Ascension St. Vincent Surgery Pavilion Campaign which raised $1.5 million through their fundraising efforts for the 2015 opening of the pavilion. Jim has served on the Ascension St. Vincent Anderson Operations Board, Mission Integration and Finance committees and, most recently, is serving his first term on the Ascension St. Vincent Anderson Foundation Board. In addition to serving on the Kids Classic committee, Marilyn is a Victoria Guild Council Member. She also spent 10 years as an emergency department volunteer.

In addition to the many gifts Jim and Marilyn have made to the Foundation over the years, they have designated the Children’s Clinic as beneficiary of their designated endowment fund held at the Madison County Community Foundation. Their legacy of caring for Madison County’s children will live on through this meaningful gift to the Children’s Clinic.

“Jim and Marilyn Ault have set the benchmark with respect to community service, leadership, philanthropy and ambassadorship. For decades they have given faithfully and selflessly of their time, talent and treasure as true partners in mission and ministry with Ascension St. Vincent. Jim and Marilyn have been extraordinarily generous with their support in both fundraising and friend-raising. In fact, it would simply be impossible to accurately and completely calculate the number of individuals whose lives have been improved by the Ault’s generosity. They have truly embodied our mission and values, and their lives and service are a beautiful example of living the principles of Catholic social teaching. Jim and Marilyn Ault are exemplars for us all, and I will always be grateful for the privilege of serving alongside and learning from them.”

Thank you for

Caring for Tomorrow.

At Ascension St. Vincent and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, we are committed to a future where exceptional care is provided to kids and families, both today and tomorrow. Your support helps make this possible, positively impacting the lives of all those we serve. Continue to read this section to see the ways your support changes lives, making sure our youngest patients receive the care they need and deserve.


Your caring spirit changes lives

Meet a few of our patients who were touched by your generosity last year

Meet Braxton.

Braxton was born in January 2023 at 22 weeks gestation when his mother was just five months pregnant. He weighed 1 pound, 4 ounces and needed a breathing tube, breathing machine and multiple surgeries.

Thanks to his parents’ enduring support and his Level 4 Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) team of dedicated nurses, doctors and respiratory, physical, speech and occupational therapists, he went home weighing more than 10 pounds in September after 200+ days in the hospital!

“We are so excited to send Braxton home as he begins the next phase of his life outside the hospital. While we are always thrilled for patients like Braxton and his family, we also will miss him as he became a part of our NICU family these past 202 days,” said Dr. Jonathan Buechler, co-medical director of Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital NICU. “I am so proud to be a part of this NICU and am humbled by all the work that led to Braxton’s success.”

Meet Carissa.

Meet Maverick.

Maverick celebrated his end of treatment with an aviation themed bell-ringing surrounded by his family and care team members. Maverick was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma in April 2023 and was cared for by Dr. Bassem Razzouk. Special end of treatment celebrations like this are made possible through the Child Life team.

Meet Faith.

When chronic pneumonia and asthma sent Faith to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in Evansville, her family was grateful for the exceptional care.

“All the staff – from the nurses, to the doctors, to the lab and x-ray technicians, worked in a coordinated effort with one goal in mind – finding an answer to bring about a quick and speedy recovery for our daughter. I think the new pediatric rooms are a wonderful idea to help children and their families during a very difficult time.” – Faith’s mom

Carissa, a longtime pediatric oncology patient, participated in normal activities as much as she could throughout the year, including school. Carissa attended school sessions in the hospital classroom as able, and Miss Heather, our hospital teacher, provided bedside sessions when she couldn’t leave her room. Miss Heather visited with Carissa’s classroom at her school and introduced Monkey in My Chair to help her stay connected with her classmates when she was unable to attend in person. More than 2,000 School Program sessions took place in 2023.


Care for Tomorrow

The Campaign for the Women & Children’s Tower at Ascension St. Vincent

At the Celebration of Caring Gala in March 2023, Peyton Manning announced a special fundraising campaign that he is chairing to support patients and families at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent—Care for Tomorrow.

The Women & Children’s Tower will connect to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital and feature one of the largest Neonatal Intensive Care Units in Indiana with 109 private rooms, and central Indiana’s first ‘couplet’ rooms to allow both moms and infants to receive treatment in the same room. In a state with some of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the nation, the Women & Children’s Tower will improve outcomes for moms and babies in need of life-saving care.

Impact of Philanthropy

The generosity of donors like you allows us to go above and beyond in caring for our patients and families. To date, the following have been made possible:

Caring for Tomorrow

Mother Bear Foundation helps renovate Center for Children waiting rooms

Thanks to the Mother Bear Foundation, the waiting rooms at Peyton Manning Center for Children are being updated to accommodate patients with sensory challenges. Pictured are Dr. Maria Del Rio Hoover, Medical Director of the Pediatrics Service Line, and Janet Raisor from Ascension St. Vincent Evansville Foundation. Both received the donation on behalf of the Foundation and the Peyton Manning Center for Children.

Ascension St. Vincent Mobile Dental Clinic receives support from Vanderburgh County Commissioners Office

“We are immensely grateful to the Vanderburgh County Commissioners Office for their generous donation,” says Dr. John Anoskey, Dental Clinic dentist. “The Clinic would not be able to provide this life-changing care without the support of generous community donors. Through their support, children without access to dental care will be afforded the chance to smile, laugh, and eat without the pain from dental decay.” A $50,000 donation was made by the Vanderburgh County Commissioners Office in American Rescue Plan Act Funds.

The Mobile Dental Clinic cares for 1600 children annually. It currently visits 47 different locations, including 34 schools within the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation.

Sometimes while in the hospital, many holidays can pass. Our Child Life team helps patients and families celebrate each one!

Child Life provided 15,103 interventions to patients through special events, procedural distractions, development play and more.

Approximately 1761 vaccines were provided to children at Peyton Manning Children’sSt. John’s Children’s Clinic at Ascension St. Vincent Anderson whose families otherwise couldn’t afford them.


Hyundai Hope on Wheels provides support for cancer patients

The Pediatric Cancer Care and Hematology Center at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent treats pediatric cancer patients from throughout Indiana and beyond. The Center is heavily involved in clinical pediatric cancer research, mainly through its association with the Children’s Oncology Group. The support of philanthropic partners plays a key role in these activities by supporting patient access to research-related testing and medications that are not covered by insurance or by the research sponsor. This helps ensure that every oncology patient is evaluated for possible inclusion in open clinical trials to determine the best course of treatment. Philanthropy also supports continuing educational opportunities for clinicians, nurses, pharmacists, and support staff at the Center.

In 2023, philanthropic support for the Center included a $100,000 donation from Hyundai Hope on Wheels. A special “handprint” ceremony took place to celebrate this generous donation. As part of the ceremony, patients, families and staff stamped bright, painted handprints onto a white car and also on a white lab coat worn by Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology Medical Director, Dr. Bassem Razzouk.

The Pediatric Cancer Care and Hematology Center is heavily involved in clinical pediatric cancer research, mainly through its association with the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). The Center currently has 42 open COG protocols for enrollment of patients, and a total of 31 patients were enrolled on COG therapeutic and non-therapeutic clinical research trials during fiscal year 2023. Overall, the Center is following more than 100 patients that have been enrolled on COG and industry-sponsored clinical trials over the past 10 years.

Anderson Center Day School celebrates first graduate

The Anderson Center has served individuals struggling with mental health and addiction in Madison County and neighboring counties since 1985. It includes a Day School for patients ages 6 to 18, which partners with Anderson Community Schools to meet the needs of students who need alternatives to a traditional classroom setting. The Anderson Center’s Day School Program’s first student recently graduated from the Day School! Anderson Community Schools in conjunction with the Anderson Center provided a Commencement Ceremony and presented Autumn Hannan her diploma. Ashley Stangland, Clinical Director for the Day School Program, and the Day School staff continue to provide an outstanding program for the community.

our Associates.

The health and happiness of our nurses, physicians, and support staff are crucial, enabling them to excel in their service to others.

Nurturing careers and transforming lives

Because of the generosity of donors like you, the Ascension St. Vincent Foundation is able to proudly support the professional growth of deserving associates through annual nursing scholarships. Made possible by contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations, these scholarships recognize and appreciate the exceptional nursing care offered to Ascension St. Vincent patients and their families.

In 2021, dedicated supporters Tina and Keith Burks, established the Tina Luzer Burks, RN, BSN and Keith Burks Nursing Scholarship. This was the first, and only to date, full ride scholarship awarded by the Ascension St. Vincent Foundation.

Tina noted the “why” beyond her decision to create this scholarship: “I personally would not have been able to achieve my nursing profession if it were not for the extraordinary help of the two scholarships that I was awarded. I am honored, along with my husband Keith, to be able to give back

to others so they can pursue their dreams and passions.”

The scholarship was awarded to Lynnetta Mann, a certified surgical technician at Ascension St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital. Lynnetta has continued to work full time on the 86th Street campus while pursuing a BSN degree from Chamberlain College, and is expected to graduate in May 2023! Lynnetta has already been offered and accepted a full-time job as an RN in the operating room upon graduation and is very excited to continue learning and honing her skills at Ascension St. Vincent.

Lynnetta shared her gratitude: “My only obstacle to continuing my education was financial, and (this scholarship) has taken away that burden. I am so grateful and so excited to see what God has in store for me. It has not been easy, but anything worth doing is never easy.”

Sue Conner

Vauthier Memorial Scholarship makes lasting difference for associate pursuing education in nursing school

Sue Conner Vauthier was a nurse at St. Mary’s from 1978-1996. Following her untimely death in 2005, the Conner Family established a memorial scholarship to honor Sue and her legacy of excellence in nursing. Over the years, the Sue Conner Vauthier scholarship has helped many nurses pursue their nursing degrees. One such nurse is Samantha Nance. Samantha expresses her appreciation to the Conner Family and the Foundation below for the support in pursuing her Nursing degree.

“Receiving this scholarship has been a tremendous honor and a pivotal moment in my academic journey. Your support means more to me than I can express. It not only helped to alleviate the financial burdens associated with going to Nursing school, such as tuition, textbooks, and the cost of living, but it also served as a profound motivation for me to continue to strive for excellence in my studies.

Your investment in my education is invaluable and will have a lasting impact on my future. I am committed to making the most of this opportunity, not only by excelling academically but also by contributing positively to my community and striving to make a meaningful difference.

I am incredibly thankful for your belief in my abilities and potential. Your generosity has inspired me to work even harder towards my educational goals. Rest assured, your contribution has been put to good use, and I hope to one day pay this kindness forward by supporting others in their educational endeavors.”

Ascension St. Vincent Evansville


Scholarship and continuing education support helps provide the best care possible

In 2023, more than $600,000 supported the ongoing education of our associates. 63 associates received scholarships to further their nursing careers, totaling more than $385,000. In addition, over $250,000 was provided to support associates with other continuing education needs, such as certification fees, conference registrations and more. Support like this changes lives as well as the care provided to our patients—thank you! Below are a few associates who have benefited from your support and can best share the difference you make.

“This scholarship will not only change my life, but it’ll change the lives of patients that I’ll have the opportunity to help in the future. I am extremely lucky to work for Ascension in the pediatric ER. I’ve witnessed teamwork, tears, miracles, and incredible things. I’ve seen how the nurses that I work with make a difference.

I am beyond determined to persevere through nursing school to become the best pediatric nurse. I truly believe that I already do as much as I can for patients as a patient care technician. As a nurse, the possibilities of how I can help patients will be so expanded. I’m so grateful and happy to be on this journey. I believe I was born to be a nurse.”

Donors help purchase of new SIM Baby, “Val”

Did you know – Indiana ranks number three in the nation for maternal deaths?

To combat this, Ascension St. Vincent Women’s Services staff and OB Physicians participate in simulations around OB hemorrhage and severe hypertension – risk factors during labor and delivery.

Veronica Collins, Women’s Services Educator, shares, “Performing simulations with our multidisciplinary healthcare team is extremely beneficial. Nurses, physicians, and techs, despite our educational backgrounds and experiences, come together to work harmoniously at the bedside.”

Simulations are particularly helpful in practicing serious situations that are not commonly seen by caregivers. After each simulation, the group participates in valuable debriefs.

With the support of generous donors of the Heritage Open at Ascension St. Vincent Evansville, a new sim mother, sim baby and additional equipment for the Simulation Lab have been purchased and are now in use by our teams! This updated equipment is vital to providing the highest quality patient outcomes for the women and newborns we serve.

Continuing education opportunities at William K. Nasser, MD, Healthcare Education & Simulation Center at Ascension St. Vincent

The William K. Nasser, MD, Healthcare Education and Simulation Center at Ascension St. Vincent plays a crucial role in addressing the evolving landscape of healthcare education. With a focus on simulation, the center provides state-of-the-art facilities and technology to replicate various medical settings, including operating rooms, intensive care units, and labor/delivery rooms.

Last year, the Center educated 15,091 learners through 64,851 contact hours, emphasizing its commitment to high-quality training. Beyond traditional education, the center provides a low-risk environment for care team members to practice medical procedures in the anatomy lab.

Associate Education Spotlight

Notably, the center facilitated final interment for 8 medical donors, provided 43 medical donors to Graduate Medical Education programs, and conducted 4 research labs to enhance healthcare safety. The commitment to continuing education spans various service lines and extends to partners like StatFlight, Perinatal/OB outreach, EMS providers, and Marian University College of Medicine.

Thank you for making this education opportunity available for our associates and community, ultimately making healthcare safer and more effective.

Thanks to donor support, Logan Estes at Ascension St. Vincent Williamsport was able to complete necessary training to advance his career in becoming a paramedic.

“The support of the Foundation helped me obtain my goal of becoming a Paramedic. Earning my Paramedic license will allow me to serve the community to the best of my abilities. Paramedics are the highest level of pre-hospital care available. By adding another medic to our roster, it increases our pre-hospital capabilities to better serve our community. Continuing education in an ever evolving field has been first and foremost since I started working for Ascension. This program, coupled with the support of my co-workers, instructors, and fellow classmates made this possible for me.”

Logan Estes, Paramedic, Ascension St. Vincent Williamsport


Associate Education Spotlights

“The Oncology Care Line at Ascension St. Vincent Evansville is very thankful to Ascension St. Vincent Evansville Foundation for their support of our nurses annual certifications, in particular for our oncology support services. All of our oncology navigators have specialty certifications - Oncology Certified RN, Certified Medical Surgical RN, and Certified Breast RN. These certifications provide advanced knowledge and various skills for each of the specialized nurses who navigate different cancer patient populations. The nurse’s certifications allow for education and support for our patients. The navigators improve patient care by providing resources locally and nationally to patients, reinforce education regarding patient’s plan of care and/or treatment, assess for barriers to care and social determinants of health, and they assist in coordination of all aspects of oncology care with a patient who has a current, past or even a potential diagnosis of cancer.”

Anita West MSN, RN, OCN Director, Oncology, Breast Center & Palliative Care

Ascension St. Vincent Evansville

“The support of donors to the Foundation to help uphold our Values of Wisdom and Dedication has given us the ability to ensure that we are providing the most up to date evidence based care. St. Vincent Evansville is a Magnet organization which drives Evidence Based Practice, Education and Specialty Certification.

The Foundation’s continued support has provided Certification Training specifically related to the Care of the Adult Critical Care Population as well as across the organization in respect to wound care. These certifications directly elevate the caregivers’ knowledge and practice, which in turn results in better patient care and outcomes.”

Harlan Family Fellow completes fellowship training

In 2023, Dr. Joanna Dong ended her fellowship training year as part of the Harlan Family Fellowship in Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology (MSDO). This fellowship was created in 2020 thanks to a generous donation made by Hal Harlan and the Harlan Family Foundation, which supports the fellowship training program at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana, specifically the work of C. William Hanke, MD, MPH, FACP.

Dr. Dong is a graduate of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City and previously completed a Dermatology Residency at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and an internship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. She will be designated as a “Harlan Family Fellow” for the remainder of her career.

Associate assistance support provides relief during a time of need

An unexpected expense or hardship can leave anyone— including our associates—in need. Thanks to our generous donors, associates experiencing hardships can receive support through the Associate Assistance program. 128 associates received assistance totaling more than $110,000 in 2023.

“I am in tears. Thank you so much. You don’t know how much relief this brings me and my family.”

Associate Assistance Recipient

Associate Assistance Recipient

“I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude for your help with the financial assistance during this tragic time for my family. This helped greatly! The help is a warm and bright ray of sunshine representing good and caring people. May you be blessed for all you do, and for your compassion and understanding.”

Associate Education Spotlight

Through donor support of associate education, Karol Craig, RN, a pediatric ICU nurse at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, was able to attend an ECMO and Advanced Therapies for Cardiovascular and Respiratory Failure Conference.

“I have been a nurse for over 30 years and have been to a lot of Nursing/ECMO conferences. Everytime I attend a conference, I am reinspired to educate myself and others. I was accompanied by a nurse who had never been to a conference before. It was great to see how excited she was about the things she learned, the people she met and the questions she was asking. This reinforces my belief that attending nursing conferences is crucial in the development of new and experienced nurses from an education, maturity and professional perspective.”

Nearly 40,000 served at Ascension St. Vincent Joshua Max Simon Primary Care Center


The Ascension St. Vincent Joshua Max Simon Primary Care Center (PCC) embodies Ascension St. Vincent’s Mission by providing quality healthcare to thousands in need. Serving as an outpatient teaching facility, the PCC also contributes to the training of medical and surgical residents and fellows, emphasizing its commitment to education. Over the last year, the PCC served 38,749 individuals, with 80% relying on government assistance or were uninsured.

benefited at the Primary Care Center

This impactful patient story highlights the compassionate care extended to those facing hurdles. A non-English speaking HIV-positive single mother with a special needs baby faced a delay in necessary surgery due to her lack of support. The PCC’s social worker intervened, securing resources to find a suitable caregiver for the baby. This assistance enabled the patient to undergo successful surgery, averting potential complications from further delay.

The PCC’s success is amplified by philanthropic partnerships that fund crucial activities and equipment.

Donations have helped support: Free colorectal cancer screenings

Essential equipment, such as a new bilirubinometer for the Family Medicine Clinic

Patient education programs, such as the Centering Pregnancy program

Educational opportunities for medical residents and fellows through conferences, symposiums, and onsite events

And so much more!

Thank you for making this support possible!

Trinity Behavioral Health Clinic helps patients like Annie

Annie Adams was a teenager when she experienced her first mental health episode. Upon entering the hospital’s emergency department, Annie had attempted suicide, was hearing voices and suffered with severe anxiety and depression. She was placed on an emergency detention order by the Kokomo Police Department and was admitted to the Trinity Behavioral Health Clinic’s inpatient unit.

After a five-day inpatient stay, Annie was stabilized on medications, given a diagnosis and information about her disease, and discharged to outpatient care for continued treatment. Over the years as a young adult, Annie continued her outpatient therapy and medication management with the help of the Trinity Behavioral Health Clinic’s staff.

During the years after her initial diagnosis, Annie worked on managing her mental health. She recently completed her degree at Indiana University – Kokomo.

Annie said, “ I am a survivor and my experience with Trinity Behavioral Health was life changing. I survived against all odds.”

Last remodeled in the 1980s, Trinity’s inpatient unit will receive a well-deserved update and new outdoor garden. With support from donors, the Howard County Community Foundation and proceeds from the Charity Golf Classic, patients like Annie will receive the care they need in a newly-renovated environment.

Annie added, “ I was scared in that initial moment, but am proud to say I graduated from college and am now an advocate for mental health. I am proud to be an ongoing patient of Trinity Behavioral Health and Ascension St. Vincent Kokomo.”

Transforming mental health through Colts “Kicking the Stigma” initiative

Ascension St. Vincent, in collaboration with the Indianapolis Colts Foundation, is taking significant strides in transforming mental health care thanks to a $75,000 grant provided by the Indianapolis Colts Foundation. This grant, a part of the “Kicking the Stigma” initiative, supports a project aimed at training healthcare leaders and frontline workers to identify and respond to signs of mental health crises.

Led by experts from the Ascension St. Vincent Stress Center,

the project focuses on “QPR” training. QPR, standing for Question, Persuade, and Refer, equips participants with essential skills for crisis identification and intervention. The training empowers individuals to recognize signs of behavioral health crises, engage in competent persuasion, and appropriately refer those in crisis for professional help on their journey to recovery. This initiative represents a crucial step towards fostering a community that prioritizes and addresses mental health.


Pulmonary Care Clinic transformation at Ascension St. Vincent Jennings

Ascension St. Vincent Jennings, in collaboration with the National Rural Health Resource Center, was part of a pilot program to expand access to pulmonary care in rural communities. The pilot program focused on developing and implementing an evidence-based outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation program. As a result, renovations were made to create a clinic space for the program, which donations to the hospital helped support. Currently pulmonary patients in the community who need these services have to drive out of the county to other facilities. This new clinic will provide patients with easier access to care, reducing COPD mortality rates, emergency visits, hospital readmissions and more. Renovations were completed in 2023, with the clinic opening January 2024.

Meet Mirra

My name is Mirra Weir and I am an oncology navigator for Ascension St. Vincent Kokomo Cancer Center. I have witnessed first hand the impact of your support. I became an oncology navigator shortly after completing my own personal cancer journey. As a patient of Dr. Chris Leagre, I received radiation therapy at the Cancer Center. That was when I learned that Foundation donors were responsible for the state-of-the-art care I was about to receive. It gave me great confidence knowing that I had one of the best radiation oncologists and the newest technology fighting cancer with me…all because of generous donors like you! Today, I am cancer free and take great pleasure in working at the Cancer Center – it feels like home to me. The people, the space, and the staff’s display of compassion to our patients and their families make the Cancer Center one of the best places I have ever worked.

Oncology navigators help ensure seamless patient care

Oncology navigators play a crucial role in ensuring uninterrupted care by directly working with patients, streamlining care processes, reducing treatment delays, and improving communication with clinicians and care teams. Nurse Navigators offer a range of services, including appointment scheduling, connecting patients to community resources, providing education to patients and families, assisting with financial navigation, and offering emotional support. These services not only alleviate stress and frustration for patients but also contribute significantly to preventing hospital readmissions through the early identification of complications and facilitating timely interventions.

fiscal year, donor support assisted patient navigators to support over

cancer patients in Anderson, Kokomo and Indianapolis communities.

Cardiovascular Research Institute continues to provide access to top trials for heart and vascular patients

Launched in 2016, the Ascension St. Vincent Cardiovascular Research Institute is committed to bringing heart and vascular trials to Indianapolis to provide cutting-edge treatment options and ensure quality patient outcomes. Ascension St. Vincent’s longstanding experience doing cardiovascular research began in the 1970’s. Today, our heart and vascular patients have access to many of the same clinical trials being done at other university-based research centers and medical centers throughout the world, and this research is supported by generous donors.

Research by the numbers in 2023

75 providers participated in research

49 trials in active enrollments

50 trials in follow up and no longer actively recruiting

16 trials in the start up phase

Fighting obesity and diabetes through education and empowerment

Obesity has reached epidemic levels in the United States, and is directly linked to type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers, to name a few. At Ascension St. Vincent Randolph, care team members have taken measures to help prevent these chronic health conditions by offering patients realistic, easy to follow nutritional plans for lifelong wellness. Generous donations have been utilized to provide educational resources and books to diabetic and pre-diabetic patients to help educate and assist with weight loss and food management. Books are also made available for patients pre-diagnosis, as a means to help prevent diabetes.

“If I can help just one patient learn the tools needed to live a life free from a chronic health disease, I will have done my job. While I can’t read the book for them, I can give them a copy, free of charge, to lead them in the right direction.”

Amanda Clevenger, NP
