The Foundation is always looking for ways to assist those in need and is funded solely by the generous contributions of those wishing to assist our efforts.
Recently, the Saint Joseph London Foundation committed more than $72,000 to purchase Noelle and Newborn Hal, a neonatal birthing simulator and training device, the largest expenditure for equipment it has made for the hospital to date.
