Proudly Introducing Anchorum St. Vincent, the New Name for SVHsupport


Anchorum Reveals New Vision as Community Impact Organization for
Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico

Today, Santa Fe-based SVHsupport, one of the largest nonprofit
charitable organizations in the State of New Mexico providing financial
and strategic support to CHRISTUS St. Vincent, proudly announces the
company's new name – Anchorum
St. Vincent
– as we celebrate our 10-year partnership with CHRISTUS
as the 50% community owner of CHRISTUS
St. Vincent
. Anchorum today also unveils its new vision for serving
as a nonprofit community health impact organization, improving the
well-being and quality of life for the people of Santa Fe and northern
New Mexico.

"Ten years ago, our community wrote a new chapter, when we partnered
with CHRISTUS Health and SVHsupport was established as a nonprofit
organization and 50% community owner of CHRISTUS St. Vincent,"
Earl Potter, Chairman of the Board, Anchorum St. Vincent. "Over the
past decade, SVHsupport has
$25 million
in the community on many programs to benefit
CHRISTUS St. Vincent and to have measurable impact on health, children
and quality of life for our community. The genesis of rebranding our
organization came several years ago, when we recognized that we have the
expertise and resources to raise the bar and do even more. We embarked
on an exciting journey with our board of directors and local community
members, including physicians and native Santa Feans, to reimagine what
health impact could be in this community, and to help guide our vision.
Today we begin a new chapter with the introduction of Anchorum St.

Anchorum St. Vincent's Purpose, Vision and Role

Our story began in 1865 when four Sisters of Charity journeyed from Ohio
to Santa Fe to establish St. Vincent's Hospital. It was a selfless
mission of healing, at a time of great need.

Today, Anchorum's purpose is to honor this 153-year legacy of
healing and care for the people of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico. And
so, begins a new chapter in our story.

Anchorum plays a critical leading role in the community by applying a
new model of health impact initiatives: We convene like-minded
philanthropic investors, nonprofits, community members, and other
partners, then serve as a catalyst to make impact grants, and sound,
purposeful impact investments in four key strategic areas:

1.) Addressing the social determinants of health, particularly adult
behavioral health, and senior health and wellness.

2.) Embracing health innovation and economic development – including
health-related technology and economic development that represent new
ways we can impact our community.

3.) Expanding our health system's physical infrastructure, by maximizing
the efficacy of existing care facilities, and leading effort to fund and
build new ones.

4.) Dedicated to extending care for our community, and facilitating
access to appropriate levels of care, through the St. Vincent family of
providers and other organizations.

We are interested in pooling resources with philanthropic investors who
seek to offer not only financial investment, but also their expertise
and their passion for impacting the health of our community in an
innovative and data-driven way. The impact investments will have
measurable impact on our underserved citizens, generate social and
financial returns, and directly improve the well-being of the people. In
the face of urgent local health challenges, Anchorum is positioned to
positively impact the physical, environmental, and socio-economic
factors that shape our community.

"Today, with our new purpose and vision, we are stepping up efforts
to make Santa Fe and northern New Mexico a destination for great health
said Peter F. Bastone, DrPH, MACHM, President and Chief Executive
Officer, Anchorum St. Vincent. "Anchorum St. Vincent is of, and for,
the local community. We know the people and culture, the businesses,
government organizations, nonprofits, health organizations and the
community's health challenges – positioning us to effectively serve as a
convener and catalyst of health impact for Santa Fe and northern New

Bastone continued, "Anchorum's role as a community health impact
organization represents a new model, which is one of the most
progressive and innovative approaches nationally. Its mission-based,
impact-investment model is changing the way we address social
determinants with sustainable solutions for the physical and behavioral
health of our community."

Origin of the Anchorum St. Vincent Name

An invented, unique, and Latinate-style name, "Anchorum" is based on and
includes the word "anchor." We are an anchor organization – with
enduring ties to the hospital and the communities of Santa Fe and
northern New Mexico. Pronounced "an-CORE-um," the name speaks to our
desire to be a trusted, foundational element in the community.
