How to Help

Ascension Saint Thomas Foundation

Sullivan Byrne
Ascension Saint Thomas was established through the philanthropy and faith of Rev. Dr. James L. Sullivan and Bishop Thomas Sebastian Byrne. Through an annual contribution of $5,000 or more, members of Sullivan Byrne follow in the footsteps of Rev. Dr. Sullivan and Bishop Byrne as essentials partners in our ministry of healing, helping to sustain and advance care. We are grateful for their leadership and commitment.


Friends of the Foundation
The Friends of the Foundation is a committed group of individuals who annually contribute $1,000 or more to support the mission and vision of Saint Thomas Health and the work of the Foundation. We are grateful for their generosity.


Seton Honorees
The Seton Society was established in 1991 by the Daughters of Charity and Ascension Health. The Seton Society recognizes and pays tribute to those physicians, nurses, health care workers and community volunteers who demonstrate excellence in their professions and in their service to Saint Thomas Health and the greater Nashville community.

Guardian Angel
The Guardian Angel program offers patients and their family members an opportunity to recognize a physician, nurse, hospital associate, or other care giver who made a difference during their visit to an Ascension Saint Thomas hospital or medical practice. We proudly recognize the following Ascension Saint Thomas's Guardian Angels for their outstanding, compassionate care.


Camp Bluebird Tributes
Camp Bluebird is a weekend retreat held twice a year where adult cancer patients and cancer survivors are provided with education, support, and encouragement in living life after a cancer diagnosis. Memorial and Honorary donations to Camp Bluebird help to offset camp expenses ensuring that the camp experience is available for all.


Baby Blessings
The Baby Blessing Wall celebrates and commemorates babies born at Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital with personalized tile. Located across from the Central Nursery on the seventh floor of Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital, the Baby Blessings display gives new parents and their loves ones a way to recognize the precious new life that began at Saint Thomas Midtown.
