St. Paul Medical Foundation

St. Paul Medical Foundation is dedicated to advancing excellent and innovative patient care at UT Southwestern University Hospitals through philanthropy, and promoting the role of faith and religion in medicine.

For more than a decade, the Foundation has been providing financial support and generating awareness on behalf of the Medical Center's Heart, Lung, and Vascular Programs, which are internationally recognized for excellent patient outcomes. In 2012 the Foundation’s Board of Directors voted to broaden its focus on Vascular Programs to encompass UT Southwestern’s Cerebrovascular Program, which recently was awarded a coveted distinction: Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center certification for UT Southwestern University Hospital.

Research Making a Difference from UT Southwestern on Vimeo.

With little time to spare, John Godwin’s life was saved by a heart transplant. Fortunately for John, a donor match was found that was close enough for quick transport of the organ to UT Southwestern. But others are not so lucky. For various reasons including organ accessibility, only 40 percent of donated hearts are actually transplanted each year, which means many patients do not survive. To help make more hearts available for transplant, St. Paul Medical Foundation is helping fund a study to perfect a device that will extend the life of a donated heart, thereby saving countless future patients like John.
