About the Foundation

Devils Lake area residents have always met community challenges head-on. Although the times have changed, our region continues to be faced with a growing need to provide solutions today, while laying the foundation for the future.

Since its beginning in 1902, CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake Hospital has delivered on the promise to provide high-quality, compassionate healthcare to people in the region. Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) is the parent organization for the CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake Hospital Foundation. CHI is the nation's third largest faith-based health care system. CHI provides CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake Hospital access to research and medical expertise of the larger CHI Hospitals.

As we face the future, we are committed to securing this promise by building a firm financial foundation that will provide predictable, consistent support for our mission and ministry.

In order to enable CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake Hospital to secure the promise to continue to provide this high level of healthcare, The CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake Hospital Foundation has established the CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake Hospital Future Endowment. This endowment will ensure a stable base of support that will forever serve to provide resources to CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake Hospital and the communities we serve.

How can you impact health care services by investing in the future of CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake Hospital and/or our community?

We invite you to join forces with an extraordinary group of individuals and organizations. They come from all walks of life, joining together and investing resources in an ongoing effort to advance the many medical, technological and educational health care services needed for all individuals in the Devils Lake and surrounding communities.
