About the Foundation
Bethesda is a not-for-profit organization that has been serving St. Louis seniors since 1889. The Bethesda Health Group (BHG) Foundation depends on charitable contributions to support our mission of providing quality and affordable care, even if our seniors have depleted their financial resources. Private generosity continues to make the critical difference. It's the reason we can offer essential amenities, such as independent living services, that are not revenue-generators, bridge the gap between what government support covers and what care actually costs, continually improve our facilities, and keep care affordable for all St. Louis seniors.
