Saint Joseph Hospital is a 433-bed facility located in Lexington, Kentucky. Founded in 1877, a small group of Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Kentucky, led by Sister Euphrasia Stafford, began their health ministry. Their mission was to provide compassionate care to the poor and underserved – a tradition still carried out today. Saint Joseph Hospital primarily serves central and eastern Kentucky with a full range of services, including distinguished awards for cardiology, orthopedics and stroke care.
Over the years, the Evening with the STARS Gala has raised more than $1.5 million for mission and outreach services at Saint Joseph Hospital, Saint Joseph East and the Saint Joseph Jessamine RJ Corman Ambulatory Care Center.
