$586,000 in grants continue mission of closed hospital

The St. Anthony Foundation last week kept a promise implied in 1988 when the old St. Anthony Family Medical Center went bankrupt.

With money from the sale of the property at N. 27th and W. Wells streets and of public stock, the foundation awarded $586,000 in grants to organizations which have replaced the old hospital in caring for the health of Milwaukee’s poorest residents.

The grants “will continue the mission of St. Anthony Hospital,” said Warren Braun, chairman of the St. Anthony Foundation board, last week in announcing awards for the following purposes:

Direct medical services: $175,000 to be shared by Guest House of Milwaukee Inc., STD Specialties Clinic Inc., Sixteenth Leg 1 ends here Street Community Health Center, the Milwaukee Hospice Home Care and Residence, Rosalie Manor Inc., S.E.T. Ministries Inc., and Interfaith Older Adult Programs.

Auxiliary health services: $135,000 to be shared by the Lisbon Avenue Community Health Center, the Marquette University College of Nursing Outreach Program, and the Near South Side Catholic Schools Association Inc.

Capital expansion and development: $276,000 to be shared by Hope House Southside Milwaukee Emergency Shelter Inc., We Four Program Inc., Elder Care Line Inc., St. Benedict Clinic (sponsored by St. Mary’s Hospital), South Side Guadalupe Dental Clinic Inc., Hillside Terrace Health Clinic, and St. Ann Adult Day Care Inc.
