Community PartnerWe feel a deep committment to provide care to our neighbors. Here are just a few ways we're striving to improve the health of Michiana.

Our service to the uninsured in Marshall County provides:

  • Diabetic patients with services, education, eye exams, and glasses

Our Family Medicine Residency Program offers training and healing:

  • Over 35 residents provide care in the areas of medicine, podiatry, and pharmacy
  • Residents share their training and knowledge by participating in international and domestic health service missions
  • Residents and family medicine physicians utilize the Reach Out and Read Program to provide age-appropriate books to low-income patients and their families

Our Mobile Medical Unit offers medical and mammogram services:

  • 1,200 digital screening mammograms annually
  • Wellness services and education to corporate and community sites
  • Visits to over 20 different sites monthly to provide services

Our Outreach Program offers athletic trainers to eight Michiana-area high schools as a donated service. These nationally certified and statelicensed trainers offer care during practices, games, and physical education classes:

  • Early recognition of injuries and immediate treatment to reduce risk of more serious injury or reinjury
  • Referrals to appropriate physicians
  • Rehabilitation for the students
  • Facilitating communication among athletes, coaches, parents, and physicians

Our School Health Ministry oversees the well-being of children:

  • In agreement with Penn-Harris-Madison and School City of Mishawaka, SJRMC provides a nursing paraprofessional in each school who works in conjunction with either a consulting nurse or an on-site registered nurse
  • School health aides and nurses have over 180,000 school health visits annually
  • Aides and nurses assist with wellness services and health fairs
  • SJRMC also underwrites the School Health Ministry program of the Catholic Schools Office for the schools in the South Bend area of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend

Our House Raffle event has returned more than $3.5 million to the community through the services and programs provided by SJRMC and Women’s Care Center, our community partner in offering hope and care for women, babies, and their families.

Saint Joseph's High School

In 2009, SJRMC made a $2.7 million land donation from our previous facility to provide Saint Joseph’s High School with a place to build its new school. This summer, the school broke ground at the location.

The new $35.5 million high school is scheduled to open for the 2012–2013 school year. We’re excited to be a part of this new addition to the downtown South Bend community.
