Ways to Give

Patient Benevolence Fund

A donation to the Benevolence Fund helps pay for the care of our poorest patients. Consider this:

  • $360 pays for most of the surgeries we do
  • $100 covers the cost of a typical medical admission
  • $400 would pay for a patient’s orthopedic care, including the surgery to repair a broken bone and the hospitalization associated with it

All of our patients pay something, but some of our patients can’t pay more than the initial $2.00 consult fee. Any amount you give will change a life.

Hope Center for Women and Children

We recently broke ground on our new Hope Center for Women and Children. The vision is to expand the quality medical care that Soddo Christian Hospital provides for women and children, and to share the love of Christ with all who enter the facility. Specifically, the intention is to increase patient capacity by 110 beds, so that the hospital can better serve the growing needs in the community and region.

The Hope Center will consist of emergency and X-Ray services, outpatient clinics, labor & delivery, inpatient wards, infant care and NICU, as well as procedure and operating rooms. The building has been designed for expansion in the future to accommodate educational space for training programs.
